Here is a glimpse at a typical summer day for us when we are away.
Chris loves building sandcastles or moats with Gigi. She is a little wave rider - and she swims with Suzy and Grandma. Our friends are here, including Gigi’s BFF, so they are pretending (that they live in a castle, that the castle is haunted, that they are princesses, that they are vampires). We take lots of beach walks.
Suzy has been coming to this island all her life with her fam. When we met, we realized Chris’s parents had been coming at the exact same time, every summer. So now we all come and hang out. Friends come. Cousins come. It’s a party - for weeks.
This summer is very different with social distancing and masks, but at the heart, it’s the same. Family and friend time. Relaxation. Sandy feet. Love.
