Summer Lovin The movie “Dirty Dancing” is one of my all time favorite coming of age movies. I love “baby’s” journey into womanhood. With the theme of our blog hop Summer Lovin, I tried to think back to remember one of those summer loving moments in my past. Names are changed to protect the guilty. LOL.  I spent a couple of summers with relatives who lived on a small key off one of the islands of the bay in the Caribbean.  One of those teenage summers the community organized a festival to commemorate the landing of some famous explorer. We were on a boat sailing around the island to re-enact the landing of this FAMOUS explorer. The object of my summer crush was an ‘older’ man. Okay maybe he was twenty. Tanned brown from working in the sun. Hair streaked, sun kissed blond highlighted the brown shaggy strands. His eyes were the most memorable feature. They sparkled when he talked. Oh, His eyes were a tawny golden color like a lion. We had one glorious afternoon kissing in the rain. I don’t know what happened to him. So many years  have passed. I wonder what kind of life he ended up having. He remains my golden eyed pirate, a fantasy of my past. Share your favorite Summer Lovin story.

  1. Loved those summer loves. I had a few. My favorite was the guy who I met right before he left for college. Too bad that story had a bad ending.
