The Salty Ocean


Sunday afternoon saw us swing past our local beach, the wind was up but the water glistened. Zephie wanted to go surfing after seeing his dadda return from the salty ocean with a surfboard under his arm. In the last light of day I watched them walk towards the water, hand in hand. The young man as light as a feather, his feet lifting off the cool sand as if he were dancing. The sun was warm upon my face and I too was swept away with the goodness of this life. 

My life.

  2. Ah, love this Em. We can get so caught up in the chaos of life that sometimes we forget to pause and appreciate all we have. Good on you for being so aware on this special Sunday of yours. Love to you, lady x

  3. Such a beautiful photo and post. I can smell the sea and feel the sand. And your life sounds very enchanting. In a good way I mean. In a real life kind of way if that makes sense.

  6. Yep, summed up beautifully. It is easy to get carried away by living on the coast. That sand, those waves, the salty smell... all of it just has the power to lift. What a great memory for you to keep and treasure Emily :o) xo

  7. Summer is the most exciting season of the year. This is the time where we can have good outdoor bonds with our family. Cherishing every moment with them is the most
    special thing.

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  11. You are just so lucky to live close to a beach so that you are always reminded that it doesn't take much. It doesn't take much. x
