It's High Summer and the sky is a deep blue.
People stroll languidly along the promenade,
Proudly sporting hats and zinc covered noses.
Teenagers zip by on their skateboards,
Oblivious to the heat of day.
Families with young children,
Frolick in the hot summer sun.
Just a whisp of cool ocean breeze,
Warm sand and the scent of sunscreen.
Mango flavoured Ice cream, little white bags of mixed lollies.
Strawberry, Vanilla, Banana and Chocolate Paddle Pops.
And Rainbow Coloured Bubble Gum.
