Sea Soothings….

Fortunate is the person who lives on a little island where the ocean surrounds our souls as well as our bodies.   They sell recordings of the sounds of the sea!

We get to listen all the time.

Below is a photo taken by my friend Lisa Robertson on one of their recent sailing trips.  Need I add more?  God's glory sung in silence and color.

 A poem to accompany it.

We are entering high season in Amelia, meaning summer, the beach and boats.  The Shrimp Festival has come and gone, not affected by one rainy day.  Tourists are everywhere.  Those of us who live here retreat to our corners of beach and yard and hunker down to tend our gardens.  New restaurants are opening yet to try.  We work in the mornings and nap in the afternoon til the cool of evening. It is summer in the Southland, on a little island of beauty.  Afternoon thunderstorms
 break the heat and send us home to a good book.

                                                   And then the sun comes out again.
