Friday Finds: A Day At The Beach

Ah, summer! As the temperature keeps climbing, I find myself longing for the ocean; blue-green water, the salty fresh air, feeling the grains of sand under my feet. Sadly, we live in a landlocked state. I'm counting on this week's Friday Finds to sustain me until I'm able visit the sea again.
