Suntans have gone a little out of favour these days, haven’t they? (Except in one faction of populace who deliberate turn orange for special events…what’s all that about?) But in my childhood suntans were highly desirable and seen as healthy. But that was when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, so I suppose the sun wasn’t so strong and the ozone more protective or something.

Anyway, grandma used to say, “Girls, you’re as white as a piece of cheese.” (And, OK, maybe it doesn’t translate so well from Czech, but you get the picture.) Needless to say, that after the long winter, we sure are, but give us a day or two in the sun with our oily Mediterranean complexions and we’ll change all that. 😀

    As a redhead with skin as white as chalk, I burn in no time. I never spend much time in the sun, but if I do I am covered from head to toe! YOur photos are beautiful, I can’t wait for a beach walk.

      Oh no Karen! 🙁 You must be very careful in the sun I guess.

      Hi Mary, thank you so much. Those flowers just ask to be painted. 😀

    Wow! Beautiful!!! Love the shot of the bare feet in the sand and the watercolor of the hibiscus–those are such showy gorgeous flowers, they basically beg to be drawn or painted 😉 So happy you are having such a wonderful time 🙂
