{turquoise waters + the south of france}

Lunch with my sister and was reminded of a summer spent in the south of France, swimming in fascinating sea caves where the water hovered between an amazing shade of green and blue . . .

I love that color, I think every setting should have a splash of it to remind us of water. :)

Each & every photo is incredible.The pic of the beach chairs in the sand is heaven on earth. THEN - the aqua vintage car and my kind of picnic! I wish I could rock a hat like that lovely woman in the killer dress.
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog today. So very appreciated!
