It's alright for us up here in the northern hemisphere: it's summer and the chances are that - if you are anywhere else but West Yorkshire - the sun is shining. It's time for holidays; time for the sea and the sands. To illustrate this I have chosen a picture of one of the most iconic beaches of all, Bondi Beach, but you will have probably noticed that it is in the southern hemisphere which is in the middle of winter at the moment. So your theme can be summer, sun and sands or winter, snow and cold or old postcards, or waves or the Bondi Vet (I have included that last one in for my wife who is madly in love with the Bondi Vet). All you have to do is to post a post on or around Saturday 25th July and add a link to the list below.
Before you fall asleep under the beach umbrella (norther hemisphere) / extra warm duvet (southern hemisphere), perhaps you would like to look ahead to the next few weeks.
You can think about all of those in the future, for now just join Sepia Saturday relaxing here on the beach. "Now Bruno, don't kick sand in my face!" "Marilyn, Marilyn, Bruno's kicking sand in my face again!"
Several of you had commented on a photo I posted previously. The link to this entry is my take on your comments...
A predictable theme of happy beach memories from my early childhood in my seaside home of Blackpool - and beyond.
A group of old b&w photos, then a post card and my own pictures from where I lived on the Atlantic Ocean.
Family experiences of Bondi Beach
Photo of us at the beach on the Isle of Palms,SC 1975.
I've got a beach related postcard this week>
beaches weren't a part of my summer holidays, nor was the seaside.
and the first time I knew about the location of my postcard was from the funniest show ever made.
Some holiday snaps this time.
A post with a little bit of summer and some information for those in the US about Honor Flights.
I picked up on the sea theme and have written about some recent and not so recent research I have done on members of my family who died at sea.
My contribution this weekend is lots of beach and ocean views, with music of course.
Lots of beaches from 1900 to 2015!
