Self Portrait 365|7

beach day
Today (as we do most weekends in summer) my boyfriend and I went to Newport Beach which is a five-minute walk from our house. It was a glorious day and we even saw dolphins frolicking in the surf.

I’ve always been a fish ~ I love the water and the feel of sand between my toes. If I could be anything, I’d be a mermaid.

Darwin may have been quite correct in his theory that man descended from the apes of the forest, but surely woman rose from the frothy sea, as resplendent as Aphrodite on her scalloped chariot.
