Life is Better At the Beach!

With all the rainy coldness we’ve had since our early April summer, I couldn’t help but need to revisit a little snippet of summer from a late this spring.

We are so fortunate to have access to a beach house in Delaware and take advantage of it as much as is possible living clear across the continent!

But… as we hunker down through wedding, portrait and real estate season, this is just a little indulgence in dreaming of the big getaway and all the places that could possibly entail!

I’ve certainly got some favourites: the laid back Delaware beach house, the culture of the Yucatan (soon – two months and counting!) and, well, a particular fave for both Marlene and I, the intense, fragrant, bold, spirit and colour of fabulous Cuba – a hybrid workshop-photo tour currently in the works for 2017!

Stay tuned, friends!
