hi summer

And then, the unspeakable purity - and freshness of the air! There was just enough heat to enhance the value of the breeze, and just enough wind to keep the whole sea in motion, to make the waves come bounding to the shore, foaming and sparkling, as if wild with glee. ~Anne Bronte, Agnes Grey

A few more ocean views for you today. It's so so lovely to have summer here. It has lured me outside daily and I still marvel at all the extra sunlight in the evenings. Yesterday, I sliced up strawberries, made whip cream, and baked some shortbread to eat together with J. It was just the right thing.
