> If you are not going to the beach.Bring the beach to you. Or something like that.
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.

    >Pri you are making me cry reading your blogs, you sound so homesick. I do hope your home there sooner than later feels like real home, in the mean time, I will keep bringing that up to Father. I think you have a beach trip planned soon. Not sure we could get Daniel out of the mts when you guys come, but we could make a quick trip to the beach but would be a lot of riding for O!

Tell me watcha thinkin'
