  3. You still have a drive-in??? That is so cool! So is this set. I love that the artist thought to do it as a silhouette set. Living in Florida, this is what the landscape looks like just before dark. I can see lots of brayered skies with this set! Favorite summer pastime--reading on the beach!

  79. Hey Vicki ~ your sunset background in glorious ~ How fantastic would it be to just ~blink~ and be right there on the beach, with the sand between your toes??!!

    My fav summer past-time is our 2 week vacation at our cottage. We are totally in the wilderness on our own Lake ~ no electricity (solar), no phones or laptops, no neighbours, zippo. ** P-E-A-C-E and Q-U-I-E-T ** It's a total SHOCK to the system when you first arrive ~ by the end of the two weeks you can't imagine returning to work and the City. It's truely the BEST :0)
