Watermelon Drift and to the Loss of the Beach

 

When the beach is more than 5 hours drive away. And, you aren't as young as you used to be, and you can't take the drive just to spend the long weekend to end the summer in style. It does not mean that you cannot bring that Beach Vibe home for just a little time.

Enjoy!
