These hot summer days have got me longing to take O ( and myself) to the beach. Given that we are as landlocked as “landlockedness” gets (which makes this long lost island girl incredibly sad), I took matters into my own hands. I am determined to make O into a little fish like I was when I was a little girl. So we went to Carrefour, bought the one pool that could fit into our balcony and voila, instant beach sans sand. O actually felt quite relaxed, enthralled in his must-have summer read: “Water, water everywhere”.
All the while I kept reassuring him ( or myself?): One of these days O, mama will introduce you to a real beach on a island far far away… One of these days.
