Summer brings with it long days filled with sun, fun and water. I think back to a day on which we travelled to Sun City in South Africa to spend a day in the water at the Valley of the Waves. It was a warm morning as we walked towards the swimming area after setting ourselves up under the umbrellas.
We admired the architecture of the valley. We looked curiously at the calm waters and the water spouting from the mouths of the lions. Where were the waves, we asked one another.
Suddenly we heard a rumbling sound and the water trembled. And saw the waves approaching. What fun to be immersed in the water! Almost as good as riding a wave in the ocean as it breaks upon the shore.
We enjoyed our moments in the sun and water. Unfortunately a huge thunderstorm cut short our pleasure as we all ran for shelter from the storm. Thunderstorms – something else that summer brings with it.
What memories do you have of Summer?
