The incredible lightness of summer

Gloucester harbor summer 2009

Reading Elle Decor from June 2010 put me in summer mode! Sunshine and birdsong were the background for a delightful afternoon, the magazines a wonderful stimulus for my senses!
Connecticut cool...

Easy living in Santa Monica

A simple plan in the Hampton's...

Making a splash on Shelter Island...

Island Girl's kitchen on Martha's Vineyard. (The eternal girl Meg Ryan)

Ahhh, summer living by the sea! Don't you love it?

  1. Victoria, I think your description "incredible lightness of summer" says it all! I just did a post on my visit to a charming coastal town here in MA. Everything about that area speaks of summer. It is hard to put it in to words. It is just a feeling you get when the weather is warm and the salty breeze is coming off the water. It "is" the best expression of what summer truly is. I am not making any sense. I just love summers here!

    I am nuts over these pictures! I have to pick that mag up!

  2. Yes, you described summer so nicely! I would love to spend a few days by the beach and hear the water at night.

  3. I think I'm a spring and summer girl, though autumn is equally lovely, too. I like the picture with the boat in the ceiling best. Reminds one of a summer by sea in Italy or Sylt;-)

  4. Lovely. I went to the beach yesterday, It is summer here, already!
