Sand between my toes.
Tingly end-of-day summer skin.
Chilled beer at sundown.
Endless olives to snack on.
Opening the shutters to brilliant sunshine.
Wearing a bikini as the main outfit choice.
Sardines for lunch.
Getting dressed for dinner only.
Children's games in the pool.
Evening drinks in sleepy white-washed town squares.
Observing the locals.
Late night swims.
Nowhere to go, nothing that needs doing.
This time away has come and as it's turned out, it is representing a bit of a life line to us. We need it. It's time. So I am off to enjoy...
