Now that the summer sun has finally decided to show up in the UK, I have to knuckle down and do my girlfriendly duty once again.
Yes, I have to go to the beach with Piers so he can indulge his sun-deprived body.
I don’t like sunshine, so being anywhere in direct exposure of sunlight is not my idea of nice. But Piers needs his sun, so we meet halfway. Instead of lying on the beach all day half naked and cultivating skin cancer, we just go for walks.
After about an hour of walking along the beachfront, we stopped at a quiet part of the beach where the sand is not so nice (we both prefer solitude to nice sand) for him to dip his feet in the icy cold water.
(Does anyone know why seawater is freezing cold even in hot summer?)
I took loads of photos of him before he realised it because we were quite far from each other and he probably thought I was taking photos of seagulls or something, lol.
When he finally realised, he came charging back, confiscated my camera and sent me packing to the sea.
It was quite nice, overall, although it was really very hot. I really don’t understand why people like to lie in the sun to be barbequed alive.
On the way home, I took some “miniature” shots. I’m totally amused by the miniature function on my camera but there weren’t many good subjects with clear shots at the beach so I didn’t get very good pictures.
Well, yesterday’s excursion at the beach was a kind of warm up, really. We’re going to Mallorca again in September, and going to a resort island does mean we have to lie in the beach all day etc. I’m preparing myself to be burnt to a crisp.

I like the photos. Piers is such a hot guy!
But of course, the photos of you are amazing :)
The sun and I don’t get along very well during long visits, either. Some days I have to take out a restraining order against it. :P
Why, thank you. :) But do you do any sunbathing at all?
I don’t “sunbathe” per say. I get sun. By that I mean I don’t make it a big production. I just go out and spend some time outside (when it’s not raining here). It seems this year is the “Year of the Thunder Shower”. Noah would do very good business building arcs here.
Business and money’s not gonna do anyone any good if arcs were actually needed to save people from an apocalyptic flood. :P
I love reading your blog, its lively, entertaining and a lovely way for family to keep in touch, and grandma loves seeing pictures of her grandson, when you all go on holiday in September , take lots of pictures. We have enjoyed The Swans, the antics of Basil and so much more, you are doing a grand job. :) and look forward to the next instalment : )
Thank you for your comment. It means a lot to me and made my day! ;) I’m going to have to try taking more photos of Piers from now on. You probably know he hates being photographed so it’s very difficult! :P
Err… sorry to jump in so late, but its arK…:P unless the Noah you’re referring to was a writer of some kind…
Oh yeah, lol.
