My ruby summer #5

My ruby summer has been great so far. Enjoying the company of Serina and Gunnar.
Lazy days at the beach, reading Ulysses and taking sunbaths.
I even managed to fall asleep for an hour, and got a ruby back side.
The water is barely 50 Fahrenheit degrees, so I'm only dipping my toes.
We saw several people - and dogs taking a plunge into the water.
Real vikings.

Originated by MaryT, check hers for today

I'm glad summer has begun for you! And when I finish the books I am currently reading, I may open up Ulysses as well.

To be at the beach on a sunny day is enough, even if cool. The Vikings were probably pretty tough, yet they probably only dipped their toes into the water too. You brought a book, the day was all yours!

Enjoy your summer, Felisol! It is too hot here to lay out. Our water will almost burn you too. It was 88.2 F at the Galveston, Texas, beach.
Next week it may be too oily to swim in.
Happy RT!

It's been since college days that I've even thought of Ulysses. Much too heavy a summer read for me. :)
Sounds like wonderful lazy days except for the coldness of the water.

what do you think of Ulysses so far? i know Joyce's novel is a classic ... but I find him so hard to read (Tolkien's in the same camp for me). Great shot for summer.

Felisol, you are so well read I'm impressed. :)

Would love to join you on the beach but I would definitely take the sunscreen. This fair Norwegian skin burns easily. But lazy days on the beach sound wonderful to me.

Enjoy your ruby summer!

Love you,
Debbie

Good morning, Elise. I'm so behind. My last week at work had me frantic, working late, and avoiding the computer at home thanks to exhaustion.

50F - feels just fine to me. Maybe a sweater against the light breeze and it's walking weather for me. BUT, like you, I'll pass on taking a dip. My Italian side makes the Swedish side pretty wimpish.

Off to read more. (((Hugs)))
