Never Changing Summer

Never changing Summer-

Summer by the sea,
it never changes-
look at the pictures 1890's, 1910, 1930's, 1960's etc now
Coney Island, Jersey Shore, Santa Monica, Malibu, Honolulu, Cannes, Saint Tropez, Cote d'Or, Amalfi Coast, Miami Beach, Big Sur, Cabo etc any beach
All the same, after a point all men in trunks or speedos, only the women's wear changes much
On the coast
At the beach
Down the shore
Sur la plage
Sur la mer
Salt air, hot sand
Cool water, wet sand for your toes to grab in the receding waves
Waves, wavelets, big crashing ones, little lapping ones
Cool breezes, hot sun
Coppertone, Bain de soleil, coconut fragrance, nothing like it
Bodies in the water, the same now as before
Couples cavorting, friends communing with the waves and each other
Singles in isolation playing and splashing-children, teens, adults, everybody.




Ah summer.
