August starts next week. August in Spain means everything is closed, and people go on vacation. Residential neighbourhoods are so quiet in August, but the tourist areas and the beaches are packed. For me, all this means that the tannery will be closed too, so I am trying to be sure I have enough supplies to last until late August/early September.
I bought an image today, from one of these photo databases. I don’t know if I’m going to use it anymore, so I am sharing it with you here:
It’s two sailboats at sea, in what looks like a summer sunset.
For my birthday last year, my boyfriend got me a book called El Arte del Mar. It contains maritime photographs taken as far back as 1843. I love looking through the book; I find pictures of the sea to be delightful. I love the actual sea too – just a huge, seemingly endless expanse, a perfect place for relaxation and reflection.
What about you – what things do you like? Some people collect representations of owls, some people visit the bridges in all the cities they travel to, and some people buy seeds of every flower they read about. It is these little quirks and idiosyncrasies that make life exciting. I want to know yours :-)
