My Beach Smile

As promised, my smile for this week is the day I spent at the beach with my family.Paula at the beach

Look at my awesome sandcastle! It’s so great just to relax and play for a few hours without a thought of politics or other drama. The beach is perfect for this. 😍

My little granddaughter had a good time too, creating her own castle and adding to mine, or smushing it, as the case may be.

And to finish off Fandango’s Dog Days of August super fun prompt series (I didn’t miss any, yay!)… my plans for September include spending a lot more time with my precious grands. I also want to work on my novel, take care of my mental and physical health (good food! exercise! sleep!), read more books, etc.

Thanks for a fabulous month of prompts, Fandango! And thank you too, Trent, for nudging us to focus on the positive. πŸ₯°

  3. Love the photos. I’m sure the granddaughter was a lot of help smushing, er, I mean adding to your castle. I think doctors need to start prescribing a day every so often to just relax, play without caring if it is silly or not (I take that back, the sillier the better!), and totally forgetting the world and all of the problems.

  6. I think us grownups forget how much fun it is to play! We don’t NEED to have little ones around to excuse it. It sure is fun to see their happy faces though!

  15. Hi Paula.
    I dont think we’ve met before but the thought of time on the beach with a child is magic to my mind. Seeing the world through their eyes is always uplifting and where better to do this than a beach.
    I have a valued memory of sitting with my youngest son at about the age of 4 as he watched large waves for the first time. He was mesmerized and just had to sit there and figure them out before getting up to join his older siblings to play in the surf. It proved to be his way in much of life.
    Thanks for sharing.

  16. This looks like so much fun. I remember going to the beach as a kid with my family. We ALWAYS built a sand castle, usually too close to the water and big waves (we were on the shore of Lake Michigan) usually washed it away which made us temporarily sad, but not so sad as to not make another one!
