Picture summer, and certain things instantly spring to mind: a beach or pool, someone attractive in sunglasses, or maybe a cocktail with a tiny paper umbrella.
Sounds good, for sure! But that's just summer on its default setting, the way we dream it in February. Real summer is so much more.
Yep, real summer - the one here and now - is a rich and varied place, full of clashing moods and moments. One day the sun is dialed up to 11, and you're floating on a huge inflatable duck – loud, proud, and goofy (maybe even a bit annoying). The next, you're all rain and reflection. You're a Zen master sipping green tea as water beads down the cottage window.
How does summer feel today? There's no right or wrong answer - just go with it. Whatever the mood, there's a Stingray vibe to capture it for you. Try searching by tags like "chill," "energetic," "fun," or "melancholy" to narrow things down as you explore.
