Happy first day of summer! Here in North Carolina our summer seems to have started early — we’ve had 90 degree plus temperatures for a couple of weeks now. These hot days always remind me of my childhood growing up in Southern California where we spent many a day at the beach and our neighborhood pool. I snapped this photo in Charleston, SC (one of my very favorite cities) at Waterfront Park where the local kids and tourists were cooling off in the fountain. Here’s to summer fun!
