Colorway Chronicles: My Summer Romance

I have a great love for water. Whether lake, ocean, river, shower, or bath, if I have the opportunity to be in or around water, I will take it. Especially during the summer months. Ironically, I live in the desert. To that end, water is ever more precious to me and my appreciation, ever stronger.  I have many romantic fantasies of escaping to a quiet beach house in view of rolling waves and lovely blue-grey time rounded stone covered beaches. This colorway is the embodiment of that fantasy.
