Indian Summer

It's been warm here recently.
Around 80 Degrees.
Warm for us. :)

Last week Howie had a few days off.
We did some *local* stuff.
Day trips.

Like a holiday in our own back yard.
Just before the cooler days of Autumn set in.

We drove around to this beach
which is directly across from *our* beach.
It's about 25 minutes away.

There are fire pits where we were.
So, we brought along some wood.
And, we roasted our dinner by the shore.

It was wonderful!

Is it getting cooler there,
or warming up?
The cooler days seem to have
arrived in our neck of the woods.
Autumn officially begins in
just over a week.
Our Indian Summer is fading.

Have a wonderful week!
Many blessings,

What a blessing to have a beach in your own backyard! We do love the beach, but have to drive three hours to get there. So it is a treat when we do get to go.

Thank you for the birthday wishes for my oldest son!

Oh yes, I have been thrilled with our summer lately...since it came so late:-)

But I feel the Autumn in the air..that smell is just wonderful. Still lots to do outside before hibernating LOL.

Loved the photos of your precious family.

Looks like a great time! It has been quite toasty lately, but this morning we have gray skies and a heavy misting...feels like autumn!


Patty said...

Sounds like a good time. Last week was quite cool and beautiful but it has warmed up again here. Hope you have a good day.

How fun! So glad you guys got some time off together and were able to enjoy the warm weather. It feels like summer finally got here and it is going to be fall next week. What is with that? LOL.

Oh Camille, this looks absolutely delightful. What a wonderful way to wrap up your summer.

We are thrilled that temperatures have dipped below 100 degrees (F) here.
