We remember the evening swims on the dock, we can smell the air and see the mirror calm water in the bay in our minds. The settling sun while papa Jay was fishing. We remember the taste of the brackish (salty and sweet) water on our lips and we can still feel the sensation of freedom when jumping in to the refreshing water to wash off the day off our skin before going to bed at night.
Afterwards we bundle up in towels and sit down to escape into the quietness, only hearing fish jumping in the reed, the spinning noise from the fishing rod being rolled in or another family down the coastline screaming of delight over the bay when doing the same thing as us.
This year was magical. A lot of memories has been made. It is hard to choose what to share. The photos are many. But most of all the memories are in my head, in my heart, and my soul. And I know this summer will be a very special memory to treasure for a lifetime.
