Summer has come, offering long, hot, sticky days as well as storms.
Our locality, during summer, sees a display of agapanthus, bouganvillea and poncianna blooms, vivid colourful swathes of blossoms joyous to behold .
This is our third summer this year. The last was in the U.K and Europe. Not having a sea-coast the enterprising Viennese made a beach . Deck chairs were set up along the banks of the canal on raised platforms and some, like the one pictured, even had sand.
After the long dark winter seeking sun, no matter the setting, seems to become a necessity. This beach overlooked the busy canal; behind were high brick walls covered in graffiti and above high rise and advertising signs.
At one end was a floating swimming pool.
On return we sought the sea and appreciated all the more its beauty.
I needed to make a beach.
