in a kingdom by the sea

I don't know when finding time to post became so impossible. Menorca feels like a year ago (it was two weeks ago). The beach the second day didn't have quite that turquoise cove perfection of the first one; it was for a different type of day. One of strolling through the surf, kicking up spray. Of eating peaches and probably a bit of sand. Of leaping across the scalding ground to sink your feet into cool silty water. And of slathering on SPF 50 every twenty minutes!

I loved your description of the day, you're a great writer! Sounds like a perfect day & love these pictures with the crystal clear water and your adorable 50s summer outfit and great milkmaid braids. Oh how I've missed you & your blog! Finding the time to blog/check blogs has somehow become impossible lately as well. Glad to see you're enjoying your summer!

My favorite part of going to the beach is dancing along the shore like a child, so I love how carefree and joyful you look in these photos! Plus, your outfit is everything I love for summer--highwaisted shorts, sun-bleached stripes, and easiness.

@Christy: And don't forget bare feet! :D
