Thursday Challenge: Palm (and Weather, too)

Blue sky.
Palm trees overhead.

The muffled sound of the waves
shhhhushing as they lap against the soft sand.
The sounds of ice cubes clinking against glass.
The click-click of feet walking in flip-flops.
The rustle of pages turning, one by one,
as books are devoured next to the pool. 

A breeze blowing off the Pacific
cools my skin as the sun bakes it.

A little slice of heaven. 
Especially when it's shared with friends.

There are some amazing pieces of writing.

Reminds me of the blue, blue skies we had in Arizona... They only get that blue here in Virginia in October when the humidity is very low.

Love this photo!

Oh, this is a lovely one. What a great sunny weather photo. I feel better just looking at it.

What an unusual perspective for your contribution. I do like it very much, especially the way you have partially hidden the sun behind the palm and just let the glow escape. Lovely post.
