Nothing says summer in Florida like surfing. As hot as it gets you can still be pretty "cool" riding the waves. This is my granddaughter Stephie learning to surf several years ago.
"Ready for Summer"

In the summer, we head for the mountains, in an effort to escape the heat and humidity of Florida. 10 hours on I-95 and we exit to a different world. Cool breezes and beauty abound.

This is my idea of summer, cooling off with two of my favorite things. I had not done a collage in a long time, so I really enjoyed doing this. Thanks to Fay Picardi for the magazine pages with those beautiful pinks. This is made entirely of torn magazines.

Summer is all about being outdoors and finding wonderful surprises in the woods...like daisies that seem to pop up on their own. This is where I'd open my picnic and rest a while; remembering how it felt when the days were long and we were children...wild at heart.

Nothing says summertime like being out in the boat on a gorgeous day, in the Keys.
I took some friends out off Marvin Key on a day when you couldn't tell the water from the sky. It was just that pretty, and calm. This is my friend Ann. Ann is always looking up, and ahead. The beginning of summer has that same feeling.... what's up, what's next!?
Summer is a time to celebrate the ocean and sailing. Wouldn't it be fun to be on a clipper ship sailing the seven seas?
