Yay, my first “Wordless Wednesday” post. For future posts, I intend to share photos of all the beautiful, natural, green things I find in and around the OC. There’s lots of material there.
In honor of the last day of summer for our family, our photo of the summer:
For the most part, these posts will be wordless, but here is a short story of how this photo came to be – We were enjoying the last week of summer vacation down at Victoria Beach in Laguna. My daughter and I walked down to the beach to watch my son and husband paddle in on their paddleboards. While waiting, my daughter (who dances EVERYWHERE she goes), started dancing on the beach.
She was just dancing for the pure love of it – without a care in the world. I quickly broke out the iPhone and started snapping photos.
Many of them didn’t turn out, but then there was this one. I added the caption “Dance like no one’s watching” on Instagram because that is exactly what she was doing – just dancing for the joy of dance, the joy of the ocean, the joy of a beautiful sunset, the joy of summer. The photo above is the #nofilter version.
We will miss you, summer 2012, thank you for bringing us moments of beauty like this.
