Nothing screams summer to me more loudly than the play of sunshine and shadows in the narrow street of our old village cores. It almost feels like a game of hide and seek.
The crazy season (as I like to call it) made its grand entrance this week. It will bring with it unrelenting heat and spectacular, fiery sunsets. Days at the beach and the comforting feel of sand between the toes.
Evening walks in streets such as these. Balmy nights and sea-breezes. Oleander flowers and sweet seasonal fruit. BBQs, parties and long talks under moonlit skies. Some cool wine and the soothing song of the crickets …
These are the summer memories that I hope to be sharing with you in the coming weeks.
