Funky On The Rocks - Sunbathing Under The Full Moon

This is the kind of beach life my introvert self delights in. Away from the masses, just me and the ocean. These rocks formed this kind of natural lagoon there at the beach of Torre Melissa, Calabria. A still pool at the otherwise often slightly stormy sea. Strangely enough, there weren't many people up there on the rocks. Then again, it was early in the season and the majority of people at the beach were families. So maybe that changed by now. The locals told me it starts to get full after the 15th of July.

Which is why I had the opportunity to play Funky on the Rocks all by myself and enjoy the view over the ocean and the sky adorned with an almost full moon rising early. The Moon and the sea are intimately linked, even tho the Mediterranean Sea doesn't have as high a tide like the more open oceans. Sometimes you may hear it doesn't have a tide, but that's not entirely true. It is just pretty insignificant to those you can experience at the Atlantic for example, or the ones I saw at the North Sea in my youth, where the ocean retreats considerably during low tide.




These Elephant Print Harempants were such a good fashion companion during my beach vacation, other than being my pants fo choice for the road trip. I cannot repeat enough how comfortable they are. But the coolest thing? You can pull them up and wear them as a jumpsuit!

Another great style buddy was this bikini top that did double duty as a fancy bralette for me on this trip down south. And really, I liked it so much as bralette, it's going with me to Germany as well. So I imagine you are going to see it again sometime, soon.

And in case you haven't been following me on Instagram, here's also a close up look at my latest tattoo. Originally I had a different kind of moon planned, a lot smaller and different placement too, but after a last minute discussion with my husband I decided on this one instead. Very pleased with how it turned out. Now I guess I can be a Moon Child too.

  1. Life on the rocks obviously suits you:) Wish I could wear harem pants... but they are inevitably too short for me. They look so comfortable. #iwillwearwhatilike
