Welcome Summer!

Permit us to mark the Summer Solstice with a few quotations from our little book, Life's a Beach, compiled by our own Barbara Paulding.

"Summer afternoon" — to me, those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
Henry James

Summertime is always the best of what might be.
Charles Bowden

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Kahlil Gibran

May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes.
Beach saying

Life is better in flip-flops.
