“River Sparkle…”




Indian Summer
always seems to find me here;
down by the river…

“River Glare…”




I had a bicycle ride across the river to the bike repair shop…

A little scary, riding a bike down steep hills, when it is making strange clicking sounds,
but necessary…

After a small adjustment, me & my bicycle are mobile, once again!

“Summer Blooms”

Black Ink, Watercolor

Too hot for shopping,
or even walking around…
Wait until twilight…

© 2015 Pamela MacCarthy




It has been over 35C (95F) every day for 9 days straight, and counting…

The neighborhood pool temperature is now 33C (91F).
I quit going, to say it is not refreshing is an understatement;
it’s dangerous…

I love to swim, and sunbathe,
but without a pool for cooling down in, nope…

So I am chillin' indoors;
painting and listening to music,
until I can get to the beach!
