Joy is…. being far from Colorado – and then finding a “pair of Bronco fans” – who were visiting the east coast from Indiana!

This cup on the beach is a “Slurpee” from 7-11- which is an ice-drink. These always remind me of my step-daughter’s visits! We used to drive to the beach – she’d leave toe prints on the windshield – and the kids would all enjoy slurps on the drive home.
In honor of a local hero.
A bench near the boardwalk – with a texture edit to show the wood grain – linked to Jude’s Bench series June.
I thought this was neat – even though I prefer the human connection when sharing.
Vivid paint color on these here doors…
notice the cool beams in this shot?
More street art.
Beach soccer is a tough sport – and the bright colors reminded me of the wpc for VIVID.

Well I hope you have a great summer.
As I wrap up this post – I just want to reiterate one of the captions above – keep in mind that “some of the best things in life are free” – So as you make plans for this summer – no matter what your circumstances are this year – let us all be mindful to enjoy each day for what it has right now – in the midst of any ups and downs! In the midst of any highs and lows – as we juggle any joys or woes – remember that we do not always need “stuff” or “lavish trips” to create some great memories.
Let us NOT miss out on the very ordinary and everyday things that are actually small gifts to enjoy! Like water – nature – food – humor – connecting with others – and even just reading, writing, blogging, or viewing something enriching – – sometimes we miss all this simple and free stuff – and we have to stir up our thoughts to appreciate it! Victor Hugo wrote that “laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face” – and if you do nothing else today – take some deep breaths and find something to laugh or smile about….
