I Heart Faces At The Beach

This is a photo of my step daughter, Danielle, catching a wave at Wrightsville Beach, NC. It was hard to choose a photo for this week’s I Heart Faces theme, “Faces at the Beach”. I live so close to one of the prettiest beaches in the world, so I have a million and one photos to choose from. This is one of my favorites of all time.

I Heart Faces is a photography sharing forum that focuses on the art of capturing faces and their various emotions. Each week, people from across the world enter their favorite face photos (except this week, it’s feet!) into two different categories ~ kids and adults. A judge picks a winning photo from each category that is displayed on the I Heart Faces page.

Summer Stock Sunday #2 – Sharing a Boogie Board


For the last eight years, or so, “summertime” means “stepdaughter-time” to me. We get her the entire month of August every year. This year she is going to be 14, and tomorrow we are headed up to New York, where she lives, to get her. This year she has invited a friend down for our month of summer. So we will have our hands full, trying to keep up with two lively teenage girls for a month!

This is a picture from last summer that my husband took of she and I, in the ocean at Wrightsville Beach. We were trying to catch a wave on a boogie board. It’s kind of hard to do, when you are sharing one between two people.

Summer Stock Sunday JPEGThis is for a meme called Summer Stock Sunday. If you’d like to participate, post a picture of anything that says summer to you, and link back to Around the Island so that other folks can find you. Have fun with it, and take time to visit the other blogs to see what summer looks like all over the world.
