Summer Memories


Summer, come and gone like the warm wind blowing across the beach.  I have barely had time to edited my summer photo' Friday's are my big days for editing and posting " just happened that way...but it works for before I emerged fully into fall shooting and sharing...I just want to give you one more glimpse at the best summer yet...perfect weather, lake house, beach house, great food and my wonderful family...time spent and time remembered...I hope your summer was a memory keeper also..
Sunrise over Gooserocks Beach..Kennebunkport Maine...
Sandpiper...hoping for a good breakfast.

Jaxson was my early morning buddy... He goes along on his own...doing his own dance..

The house is still quiet but slowly the smell of coffee, dogs paws, along with toes toes, join us in the sand. never know when you'll need it...just part of the ocean view.

No schedule, no rules, just the beach and thoughts of sand castles..breakfast...maybe later.

Family, the entire family. We all share a love of the ocean and all that the ocean is not often that we get to play together as a family, relax and just enjoy the finest moments of summer...My Son Chris...

The perfect summer entertainment...enjoyed with a slice of sky and sea and wee voices...


 I could listen to him giggle all belong at the gives them such freedom to be themselves and to create, imagine and rest...also to investigate and run with the tide.


So as this  summer comes to an end...I take time to get quiet, by myself and reflect on the many gifts of this family vacation and the sea...I see Jaxson here and I think about him looking out to the horizon and hoping these moments in the Summer Wind will stir memories for him and Liam in future years. From a simple grain of sand, to a soft gentle breeze or perhaps the smell of salt from the rolling sea.  Add in  early morning walks, gathering shells and resting in the sun, bike rides and conversation of great importance (to little boys), I hope they will remember and grow to  love the good times we a Family by the Sea. 

"Summer Wind"

The summer wind, came blowin' in from across the sea
It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flyin' by
The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
Then softer than a piper man one day it called to you
I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind.
