It´s here, the summer, the beach, the hours...

1.)What to Read:
Recipes by Gywneth Palltrow in "My Father´s Favourites" in tribute to her father who died in 2002.

2.)What to Watch:
"A Summer Place" is a film from 1959 and directed by Delmer Daves and played by Richard Egan, Dorothy McGuire and Sandra Dee. I specially love the landscapes and the lovely houses in New Scotland. The original soundtrack was created by Percy Faith and is fabulous. The story is about a self-made businessman rekindles a romance with a former flame while their two teenage children begin a romance of their own with drastic consequences for both couples.
