Update on our first half of summer in the city: We have been out and about, enjoying all kinds of activities, from running, biking, eating, going to the farmers market, attending worship, and relaxing at the Taste of Bloomington!
Here are a few photos from our #BTownSummer :
Fresh Veggies at the Farmers Market!
Love the Beautiful Flowers at Farmers Market!
The Trail where we bike and run!
My new electra bike has been getting a workout!
Can you tell I like taking pictures? And it’s so easy with my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. I usually carry it in an armband when I’m running or biking, making it a quick go-to for impromptu photo ops. So far, the only thing that has eluded me, was a really fast wild turkey running across the BLine (the paved trail that runs thru town) when I was biking! That’s all for this week-stay tuned. I had to save some photos for my next post, which will include the recipe for a refreshing summer cocktail!
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)
Ah, summer. What? Summer?! Yes, summer is upon us. Even though the official first day is still a few weeks away, the weather is warming, schools are dismissing, and beaches are calling. Having recently returned from a beachy vacay myself, I thought it only appropriate to share some tips on my favorite beach necessities. Besides, it gave me a reason to take all these fun pictures which my sister thought were crazy! And, none of my tips have anything to do with losing weight, exercising, or fitting into the perfect suit. So just grab your old suit, or buy a new one if you feel the need. But here’s the important stuff:(You can click on each image to enlarge flip thru them!)
A nice vinyl bag to carry dry goods or lunch! Ours contained drinks, wiches, and grapes.
Flip flops for traipsing back and forth to car and restrooms!
Most importantly, you need a good sunscreen. And of course, a good lip balm to protect your sexy self!
Gotta have a towel.
Ah, and a comfy chair. These are great because they have shoulder straps for carrying, a pocket on back for stowing that sunscreen, and built in cup holders!
A good book to read. Sorry, mine’s about eating!
I love my Pentax. It’s water proof so I can even take it snorkeling!
A good coverup is always in style!
Gotta protect your beautiful eyes!
I have to thank my lovely daughter and son-in-law for loaning us their home close to the beach. And their chairs, towels, and beach bag! Imagine trying to pack those things on a plane!
Now get out there and enjoy your summer! And don’t forget the sunscreen.
