Ah, yes, it’s summer again. We had a long (crazy long), cold (super cold) winter that was determined to hang on for as long as it could, but now the windows are rolled down, the wind is messing up our hair and we’re loving it. Let’s all go to the beach!


Maybe we should all go to this isolated beach I found in Vietnam. That’s what I’m talking about!

Right now I’m imagining sitting in one of those beach chairs with the super short legs so that I’m just about an inch above the sand. I’ve got everything just right; a cold drink in one hand, a trashy book in the other, and the waves just making it up to my feet and keeping them cool. Maybe someone else is taking care of dinner. And maybe someone else is going to take care of the dishes. I haven’t turned a page in my book for two hours. I’m just looking out over the water as the shrimp boats pass by. I’ve got nothing to do and nowhere to go.  That’s what this month’s song is all about – enjoying the moment and making it last.

Even this guy, made entirely of bath towels, enjoys relaxing.

Last year, right around now, I released my first beach song, and this month’s is my second. I think we’ve established a tradition. I hope you have a great June. Enjoy the song! Learn how to play it or just sing along. And, as always, if you haven’t signed up for a monthly song update, get down to it!!

      Thanks so much! Can’t wait to see you all later this week.

  3. I want to go to the beach! (And will you tell me what the little horn-like sound is in the song?)

      I’m playing the legendary “Cuica” or “kuweeca” from Brazil. This one came from the particularly sunny beaches in Ipanema.

    A great lazy day song Josh. Need to track voices so we get the Beach Boys feel with harmonies!!!
    That is one sexy uke 🙂

      Thanks so much Fletcher! Maybe it’s time to really work on my falsetto!
