Remembering Basud [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

dropping anchor at Hda. Basud, Lahuy Island

I remember this beach---where the wind blows through my hair. The warm sun bathes my skin. Soft golden sand caresses my feet. The waves are gently rippling and the trees gracefully swaying against the breeze. The rising tides lift our small yellow boat. We have rain today, ominous clouds at the horizon...is summer ending so soon? But the air is hot and humid still, even Fritz is lethargic. And I sit here, sweat trickles down my forehead, sluggish in this dog day afternoon, remembering the sun-soaked, carefree moments at Basud.

The color of the outrigger brings out the beauty of the scene. You have been island hoping, ha? Like the new color scheme of your blog.

The photo reminds me of the Ha Long Bay in VietNam. It's very beautiful Miranda.

Thanks for linking to Wednesday Gratitude! The water and sky look so cool and calming, and refreshing, too! I hope it cools down a bit, but that you have more summer fun to enjoy.
