Growing up on Canada’s west coast, I was fortunate to spend large parts of my summers at the beach. For me, there’s nothing like it. I call myself a dyed in the wool city girl and while I love the buzz of urban life, I can’t resist the call back to the beach.

While I live a great distance from the ocean these days, I’m fortunate to be within driving distance of some of the Great Lakes. It’s not the sea, but it is the beach and that’s something.


I’m thoroughly enjoying the submissions to the Mortal Muses Flickr pool for this month’s WATER theme and I thought I’d pick out a few of my beachy favourites.
