In this weather...

forget about the cleaning



and no matter what age you are

     


                                                                 pick out a costume or knit your own

     


                         and head for the beach...

    

     
where you can hang out with the girls

     


but don't forget to bring a parasol



and something to read for when you aren't sunbathing

     

or listening to music
      

make sure you look your best

     
because who knows who you might meet there

     
 

then we can go and have some fun on the pier


ready?

Pretty in pink...

       

a favourite film... but not a colour I'm fond of

                  
but with so many different shades of pink...                       

             

     
there's bound to be something to like
