Inspired by Marina's great beach drawings, I am posting a couple from my last beach days on the other side of the world. The beach is great, no matter where. I never thought about matching my suit to my beach umbrella. Maybe that is because I am usually in black. I am not sure that I have ever seen a black beach umbrella. No matter, this was amusing to me. These drawings are from Long Beach, Long Island, a beach that I grew up going to, and still remains one of my faves. It was completely destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. Now, the boardwalk is up again, in part, but those days of "under the boardwalk" are gone. There are some significant barriers, not all that pretty, to head off another disaster.
If it saves the beach, I am all for it.
