Thirst

Thoughts of summer dancing in my head like buoys in high seas.  Cruising the Sound, crab pots pulled and picked.  Pipelines to be caught, lines to be wet.  Castles of sand, beacons of light.  Smiles abound, trade winds     caressing sun-kissed skin.  Barefoot tans, souls warmed.  Teach’s Hole, Blackbeard whispers.   Paddle salt marsh, grasses wisp.  Salty lips kiss cares goodnight.  Have Evinrude, will skim wake.   Sun sinking in blaze of glory.  Cheers, my loves.  Catch of the day served Pamlico fresh.  OINC, OINC, reservations required.  Escape from reality set, daydreaming ensues.

My songs of the day are:

“Bubble Toes” by Jack Johnson

“Goin’ Nowhere Blues” by Robert Earl Keen

“Another Sun” by Tracy Chapman

“Carolina In My Mind” by James Taylor

“Boat Drinks” by Jimmy Buffet

“In God’s Country” by U2

    • It’s been in single digits for a week now. But today it’s gonna be near 50! It’s bizarre! But 50 feels like a heat wave. Break out the swim trunks indeed! This post was made after reserving our house for summer. Once we do that, I’m officially checked out. Was hoping I’d win that lotto last night. I would be truly checked out right now if that would’ve happened! 😃

  5. So I am going to assume that you have a boat? Do you go crab picking?

    • We do, both the boat and the crabbing. Not here in Kentucky of course, but we take it to my in-laws place in Apalachicola, when we go down to Long Beach, MS, and whenever we go on vacation. This particular pic was from a sandbar on the Scipio Creek which feeds into the Apalachicola River.
