beach daze

Sno-cones at the beach. It’s almost a tradition.

It’s been cloudy and rainy and pretty miserable for the past week or so. I know there’s been a drought on for the past forever, and that we should all be happy for the rain, but seriously, I just want to sun to come out so I can go to the beach and eat sno-cones and all that other summer stuff, like in the above photos taken a month or so ago. In other news, my summer festival season kicks off with Sunset Sounds tomorrow. I’m a bit nonplussed about it so far. But we’re hiring an apartment in the city only a few streets away from the venue so I’m sure it’ll all start feeling a bit more festival-y tomorrow. No doubt I’ll be bursting out of my body in anticipation of seeing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs perform (bring on Thursday!) And this time I’ll actually see them. Unlike Splendour in the Grass 2006. Where I was so far back I only got a few glimpses of Karen O and saw the tops of a lot of people’s heads. Which is saying something, because usually I have no problems at festivals and concerts, and often thank my genes for being reasonably tall πŸ™‚
