Lighten Up!

Lighten the load

when to the beach we go.

Life there is calm

the daily pace is slow.

Out come our whites

shorts, swimsuits – sandals too!

Keep the look so simple

no time to fuss with shoes.

It really is quite lovely

Unencumbered time by the sea.

The beach bag is full of goodies

but only joy dwells in me!

    Great summer poem to get us all in the mood for the beach, sun and summer fun! Can’t wait to cross that bridge… :)

    Just enjoyed the three sets of coasters which Pam Lassen had just acquired and was very much impressed!

    My sailing daughter, Linda, will enjoy the (nautical) set which Pam had ready for me to take to her celebration luncheon on this Saturday here in Mashpee.

    thank you ,
