Abandoned Beach Sandals         2022©Isadora DeLaVega

I found these abandoned sandals as I left the beach one day. Someone knew that as September approaches, we’re leaving behind summer, and the new fall season will soon begin. The lazy, hazy days of dipping our toes in the ocean after covering them with gritty sand will become fond memories.

Throwaway Society      2022

Perhaps, beach days won’t be on the calendar of the people                                                                                        who left behind their beach chair and fun noodle float.

Coconut Stand       2022©Isadora DeLaVega

A machete stabs a coconut for the sweet coconut juice hidden inside. We snacked on plantain fries and ice-cold beers as we watched this man with a machete chopping coconuts to sell to a fellow tourist. It was interesting the way he freely wielded that machete around.

While walking the beach, you can come across more things than shells.

People decided to create fun artwork with toys, rocks, and seashells.

Shell Collection      2022©Isadora DeLaVega

Seashells are abundant at the beach in the early morning hours.                                                                               These are a few shells I’ve collected over several years.                                                                                               None of them are unique, just playing with seashell collecting.

Summer Sunset    2022©Isadora DeLaVega

And, when day is done … a glowing summer sunset can be a favorite find                                                                       on that particular evening. But, the next one tomorrow will be a favorite find too.

  1. Terrific choice for the week Izzy, and I loved both your images and the opening quote. So very true! We do love our summers don’t we? If they lasted all year would be appreciate them as much? I think not!

      I’m late … I’m late … let’s call it fashionably late ~~~ : – )
      I’m with you, at times, I don’t appreciate the hot summer
      days year round. My daughter is encouraging me to move to SC near her.
      As I get older, it sounds tempting except for the moving things part. LOL
      Thanks Tina for always popping in with your lovely comments.
      I don’t seem to be able to catch up. Sorry about the lateness.
      Isadora 😎
