Goodbye Lovely Summer

1 Comment

Alas summer has ended and fall has started today.  I’m a little sad.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of fall.  I appreciate the feeling of starting anew (sort of second new year if you will), the changing leaves, the pumpkins, Dia de los Muertos, football games, the Head of the Charles Regatta and even that soft oversized sweater.

But oh the sweet days of summer when all seems right in the world. Visions Memories of languid days spent on the beach, sunsets, tans and swimming, oh glorious swimming in the ocean. (The last I will miss the most.)

So just a quick tribute and farewell to my favorite season with a picture collage and quote.

“By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.”
~ Helen Hunt Jackson

Summer 2015 RecapFrom Left to Right, Top to Bottom Row by Row:
Row 1: 1. Let the games begin. Heading to MV on the boat,  2. An understated Memensha Sunset,  3. An unexpected surprise in nature uncovered during a walk,  4. SUP for 2 hours!
Row 2: 1. Dinner trying to escape,  2. Caught and enjoyed by sunset,  3. The Ag Fair flower exhibit,  4. Sunrise on vacation (Yes! One of my 101 goals accomplished!)
Row 3: 1. Beetlebung with Blanc De, Blue and the lanterns,  2. Found art on the beach,  3 & 4. Fireworks captured in August (the best time)
Row 4: 1. Waning July sunset,  2. SPOTTED! Art on the unexpected palette (Read More),  3. A last Monarch butterfly this past Sunday 9/20,  4. Ferry Goodbyes (The wake on the last trip this summer.)

 

Oh what a season you’ve been.  Thanks summer. Can’t wait to see you again next year.
