Those Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer...

Summer is coming to an end...at least those really warm, rather lazy and sorta' crazy days of summer that require children in the house to make authentic...

This past week in town I noticed a number of signs of the end of that good thing we call summer around here:

-there were boys with their fishing gear waiting for a light to change so they could make their way down to the ocean...at least they were headed in that direction

-the numbers of boats on the water has increased as the month of August has flown by...like people are trying to squeeze out of the last days more time on the ocean

-the bees/wasps/hornets are making a final push...they just sit on you, I have found some crawling up my sleeve or pant leg but they are very friendly this year, nevertheless, I have put out my catchers because everyone around here isn't as comfortable around the bees and there are masses of them...


-the mornings are cooler and the sky is darker at 6 am than I would like...

-the skies are more colourful and brilliant during the day and in the evening (caught this sky while we waited for the ferry)...


-the grass on the hillsides is golden and dry...

-the big treat of the week was this siting I had of this remarkable car...the fellow had the top down but he was wearing his fleecy...


Wishing you all a lovely beginning to September and may your days ahead be balmy and bright.  For those of you 'of a certain age' you may really enjoy this song and for those younger, well ...

  1. That is an incredibly cool car. Are you sure you didn't see my name on it somewhere?!

    I am amazed by how quickly it is getting darker in the morning... sigh.
