Is It Summer Yet? Blog Hop


Welcome to Is It Summer Yet? Blog Hop hosted by Queer Town Abbey. The Grand Prize of this blog hop are:
1. iPod shuffle
2. Queer as Folk Box, Music from the ShowTime original series Seasons 3,4,&5 donated by Tommy Boy Entertainment

and 11 other great prizes

Enter the Rafflecopter below to get a chance to win the prizes!

And on this post, I will have a giveaway of my stories from Alfie Dog Fiction. One of the short stories, A Granted Wish, has the characters end up on the beach in a dream, and it has something to do with my answer for this blog hop theme, ‘My Best Summer Memory.’


I don't have Summer and any of those four seasons in my country, but when it's dry season and the weather is hot, the sky is clear, and usually it's a holiday season, one of the best things to do is going to the beach, and my country has a lot of beaches.

I used to live in this small town near the beach and my family and I practically went there every week or anytime we felt like it. The white-sandy beach was clean and pristine and although many people went there, we still could enjoy ourselves for it was quite long. We didn't do a lot of things, just lying around, playing with the sands and in the water. We just had with us some canned juice drinks and a bit of snacks. Sometimes we lay down until we fell asleep. :)

What about you?

  4. I grew up on a river and it was just 20 minutes from the bay by boat. I love the water and try to get near it any time I can.

  5. I live near the beach but I burn easy so while I go a lot I tend to stay covered up and under an umbrella reading while my friends enjoy the surf.

  7. If I fall asleep on a beach, it's while under an umbrella! ;) But I do enjoy visiting the tide pools to see what I can find.

  8. I love the picture it brings back happy memories of the beach I went to as a child with my family. We'd spend most of the day there I used to go so brown never got sunburnt happy times.
