I like everything about this photo.

The Cape Cod light, workable even at midday.

The sky. That color, found only at the beach.

The stinking cute ruffly swimsuit, perfect for her fair skin.

The orange goldfish.

The sand cascading from her hand.

The apple cheeks.

The crooked 8-year-old teeth.

The salty beach hair.

The braids.

The bright blue pail.

The lefty shovel.

The hazy summer heat.

The smile.

I like it all.

And the girl?

Oh, I love the girl.

*Another thing I love? Her Dad took this photo. I love the happy surprise of finding Paul’s photos when I go through the images later.

Cheryl - Today is Betsy’s birthday! July 13th! She has two kids sick with fever and vomiting for the last couple of days and one recovering from a concussion he sustained over the weekend which has been a stressful experience! It has been quite a week for her, so I just thought I would let you all know! Tell her Happy Birthday!
