Photo Prompt 7

Sunscreen, chlorine, the way the concrete burns the bottoms of your feet.

The faint smell of smoke from a barbecue pit somewhere, burgers and hot dogs sizzling on the grill.

The water feels like ice when you test it with your toe.

Flip-flops slapping. Splashes. Cicadas buzzing in the trees.

Bug spray, Swim Ear, diving rings, goggles.

The blast of the lifeguard’s whistle.

It’s 100 degrees outside, but you still wrap yourself in the warmth of your beach towel when you get out of the water.

Popsicles that drip onto your hands.
