Summer Delights May 26, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Gratitude, Happiness, Nature.

Playing in the sand . . .

Sailing under sunny skies punctuated by puffs of clouds . . .

Splashing in pools . . .

Wandering the beach . . .

Toasting marshmallows for S’Mores . . .

Summer delights . . .

Aah . . . that’s better!

Summer is my FAVORITE season. Long sultry days and island nights are a delight.

2. sufilight - May 26, 2012

You left me smiling…and smiling. I haven’t been in a pool in a long time and that was one of my most favorite summer activities.

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

One of my favorite things about living here is access to pools year round ~ I’m in the pool, splishing and splashing,at least twice a week most weeks of the year.

I just got the air in my car fixed after five long summers without it, so that will have to be my pool. My husband said that I would have to just go sit in the car with the air on and enjoy once in a while because of the cost! In the end it didn’t costs half as much as we had been quoted even though there a few issues that popped up. I just told the dogs, hey we can go get in the car and ride around for heck of it now.

I’m glad that you’ll have a cool place to chill this summer, Linda.

One year, we got a kiddie pool for splashing around in the backyard. Aah . . . that’s better!

Booksphotographsandartwork - May 26, 2012

Yes I have done that before. I might do it again this year.

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Running through the sprinkler with your grandkids might provide some FUN in the SUN too. 😀

4. barb19 - May 26, 2012

Thanks. Summertime is my favorite state of mind.

6. eof737 - May 26, 2012

Ah, the joy of summer outings! 😉

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Yes! Boating, shelling, spitting watermelon seeds, toasting marshmallows around the fire, nibbling corn off the cob.

eof737 - May 26, 2012

Delicious… pass the corn and the butter please. 🙂

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Shall do! We had some this week . . . delicious!

Thanks, Janet. Summer joys always make me smile. 😀

8. bluebee - May 26, 2012

The spirits lift with summer – and the water is the place to be

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

On the hottest days, nothing refreshes like a dip in the pool. 😀

9. jannatwrites - May 27, 2012

Summer sure looks beautiful where you are! (I can see why it would be your favorite season.)

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Thanks, Janna. It’s always been my #1 season.

These are a mix from up and down the East Coast ~ 2 from NJ (1&3), 2 from MD (5&6), and 2 from FL (2&4).

10. souldipper - May 27, 2012

I am loving a warm evening wind…at last. And the smells it brings. Yes…another shot at summer coming right up!

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Sounds like a lovely evening for sticking your nose outside.

11. wightrabbit - May 27, 2012

Delightful! 🙂

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Thanks, Jacqueline. I didn’t have any trouble finding a few shots that shout “SUMMER” to me.

12. CMSmith - May 27, 2012

Sounds like fun. I love your little boat, raft, or float. Are you at a bar or restaurant?

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

It’s a raft at Secret’s Bar & Grill in Ocean City, Maryland ~ at the outdoor bar with “wading waitresses.”

13. Crowing Crone Joss - May 27, 2012

aah – summer!

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Summer is in full bloom in FL . . . but not in all 50 states. I heard last night that snow was expected in Montana. 😯

14. Three Well Beings - May 28, 2012

Happy faces with content spirits! Children and family photos always make me smile and that great last photo is what I call “full release!” Debra

nrhatch - May 28, 2012

I watched a short video last night about how to be more attractive to your mate ~ the advice was great . . . SMILE! 😀

Smiles allow us to share our inner light with the world.

15. Tokeloshe - May 28, 2012

Well done!

nrhatch - May 28, 2012

Thanks, Tok! Summer delights are worth sharing, eh?

16. Jackie L. Robinson - May 29, 2012

Absolutely makes me feel like summer!! Love the photos. We’re headed to the northeastern US coast in a few weeks…your photos took me there in an instant! Xo

nrhatch - May 29, 2012

Have a FUN trip, Jackie. We’re having a family reunion in Jersey in a couple of weeks too.

17. Piglet in Portugal - May 30, 2012

I love the photo of the children cooking marshmallows over hot coals and the sea in the background. I close my eyes and I can almost picture I’m there!

nrhatch - May 30, 2012

The sea is the Chesapeake Bay, which resides between the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virgina (the DelMarVa peninsula) and Washington DC. It’s the largest salt water estuary in the states ~ a natural “hatch”ery for marine babies. 😀
