Sweet Memories At Crescent Beach

AT FIRST GLANCE it seemed as if I stumbled into a prairie wheat field when I visited Crescent Beach in South Surrey. The days are rainless and umbellas are used more as protection against the sizzling sun than showers.

The high grasses bordering the beach around Mud Bay thrived magnificently this hot summer and seemed more stately than usual above the squishy sand and puddles along the beach at low tide.

Around the corner in a peaceful alley, the scent of tangled sweet peas filled the air. Their delicious aroma brought back memories of my mom who loved to nurture flowers in her garden.

Memories of my mother sharing her floral passions with me continue to unravel and grow. It was all so magical during my childhood. The more she cut sweet peas to put in a vase, the more plentifully they grew in her garden.

  1. Jericho also has the longest grasses of any summer I can remember. Beautiful shots, and the magical memories of your mother's passions will live on as they unravel and grow though your writing.

  2. Wow, I guess I didn't get down to Crescent Beach when I was out there, but it sure was hot. Hope you've had some rain since then. We've had rain twice out here, which is most unseasonal.
