WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE SUMMER

The Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge called for pictures of summer.  To me summer means the beach.

ABOUT THE PICTURE

My mother.  Taken one summer on the beach at Point Pleasant.  Hope it shows up half decently.  She looks about twelve.  She was fearless in the water.  She claimed to swim with the life guards when waves were 20 feet high.  I was terrified of water from the time I was five until I made myself learn to swim at the age of 21.   Still want goggles as water in my eyes brings back the trauma of being tossed into water I thought was over my head by my older brother when five.  He, as did many of that time, thought it was the way to teach me to swim.  Didn’t work.

STAYING STRONG TIP

What can I say:  Get to a beach if that is your thing.  Just looking for some beach pictures has brought  a bit of beach to  my heart. If the beach is not where summer fills your heart, then do your own living easy thing.  Build good memories.

Thank you for reading and as I tell myself a hundred times stay strong.
