Summer to me means heat and when you are hot everyone gravitates to the water.

In Australia we are still lucky enough to find beaches that have few people on them

and places to sunbake on the rocks (not a good idea these days)

Some prefer boating, others surfing

some like the shade an umbrella gives them when they drag themselves from the cooling water.

When a beach is not available there is always a pool somewhere handy.

Even harbour pools are fun. Possibly more so because the little ones can play in the sand. Yes summer is a time of beach and sun lotion. Being presently in winter I look forward to its return.

In response to Sunday Stills  where the prompt was summer.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  2. Your water images are fabulous and make me wish I could dive right in, Irene! I forgot about the time difference there, so Sunday Stills on Saturday works for me, especially since it is HOT here in Northern California! Thanks for linking and sharing. Check out the post at 7am Sunday Pacific Time!

  4. Great images of hot weather—something it seems we will never have, even though we are several weeks into summer!
