Where did our spring go? It’s summer and it’s hot. For the places in the world where the European dress norms of the self-professed ‘civilized world’ rule, I can’t imagine what it must have been like just 100 years ago trying to manage to survive a stifling heat under what was deemed essential layers of clothing. I am very fortunate, or is it spoiled, to be able to take advantage of the modern convenience of refrigeration. I was thinking today what would I do if faced with these temperatures without the benefit of the cooling breeze of a happily purring condenser unit? I think I might just melt into a puddle and need to be collected with a sponge.
There are still many places in the world where air conditioning units are not a staple of a modern home. In some cases it’s because the local temperatures do not warrant them, but in some places it’s either a matter of the technology not being available to the local economy or the cost being more than reasonable for the common household. I consider myself lucky to be able to enjoy the summer days in comfort.
With this said, I thought the best place to wait out the heat is on a lovely beach watching the waves play along the shoreline. This is the best place to be when the temps are on the warm side.
The place where you can sit back and enjoy the heat, cool your toes in the ocean, and wonder at the splendor of it all.
I love the beach. Now all I need is a nice frosty beverage. Bliss.
