While I admit that fall is my favorite season, summer always has a special magic and runs a close second. We were lucky to spend the Summer Solstice on our favorite secluded beach. Sand, sun, salt, and sea always make for a perfect day. Always. After reading, napping, and a bit of basking, a sunset picnic on J's trusty tailgate was in serious order. Just when it couldn't get any better, it did. A moon-lit drive! That Strawberry Moon sure meant business! Our favorite winding road didn't disappoint -- the summer scents came alive! Alfalfa, sage, and jasmine! It's been a little rough in recent weeks, but our recent adventure was a pretty perfect start to the summer season. I hope it's going to be a fun one -- I have high hopes!
