We are the water people

  • It's true. We always gravitate towards beaches, waterfalls, islands - for our vacations. We are the water people.
  • The children are the happiest when I let them run free on the beach. Digging sand, getting absolutely dirty then running to have a dip in the water.
  • Mr. Husband used to live in a house atop of the water, a fishing village me thinks. Gotta ask him that.
  • Me, I am content just sitting in a shade, listening to them, listening to the ocean. Preferably with a tall glass of ice cold lemonade *that i am not gonna share - heeeeheeee* :)
DSC_0821
  • This photo was taken from a boardwalk - in Langkawi in June 2009. I still take a deep breath everytime I come across it. I love that place.
  • I wish I can bring everyone of you to that magical place - if only to watch the sunrise. It was really something else. I know I can't, but I can give you Boardwalk :) Yes, I have one Boardwalk for a lucky winner - Thank you Studio Calico.
  • Leave a comment below by August 22nd if you would like to be entered in the drawing. As long as you're able to comment, you're in.

The beach is my happy place too. I could sit on the sand, daydreaming whilst listening to the ocean all day long. Marina

Sherri said...

If I didn't know better I'd say that photo was not actually a photo at all but a glimpse of Heaven from someone's imagination. It's so speechlessly stunning. Ugh, to have been able to see that irl, that's quite something. You've been blessed. Now, as for the SC kit, it was my first kit as a sub, yah! But if you draw my name I'd gift it away to make someone else's day scrappily bright and cheery.

cappuccino and colour said...

I would love to join you with my own (lol) glass of ice cold lemonade at the ocean!! Thanks so much for the chance of some lovely SC.

I was just at the beach with my kids yesterday. I hardly take them to the beach because three little ones + large bodies of water is not possible without many extra hands. But both my sisters are here in the island (rare occurrence) and we all went. And it was WONDERFUL.
