Another song starts playing in my mind. Remember Cliff Richard? Well, he was my teenage idol. I went to see the movie and bought the album, played it till it wore out and got burned into my brain.
We’ll be flying out to Seattle to visit Jean, but in the meantime, day trips are part of our summer holidays. In fact, day trips are great anytime, but especially fun in warm weather.
On the way to Niagara Falls last month (we never rush because the moment we pull out of the driveway, the fun begins, I’m all about the journey and not just the destination) we stopped at Grasshopper Imports. A unique shopping experience selling: clothing, jewelry, pottery, home decor and so much more. The store has a ’60s vibe.
Sometimes we detour a little and enjoy Niagara-on-the-Lake.
But not this time.
Niagara Falls is just as magnificent as every time we go.
I wore my green and black zebra print dress, one of the dresses I can wear anytime. On cool days with a cardigan. In the winter with black tights and boots.
Bare shoulders and keyhole cutout at the neckline is perfect for hot summer days.
This black lace cardigan is cool, just right for summer evenings and air-conditioned restaurants. It’s very thin and lightweight, also good to keep the sun off. It has a ruffle on the hem and happens to match the black lace ribbon around my straw hat.
Never too old to have fun!
Summertime: a time to make happy memories!
