last days of summer

September 18, 2012

literally, before the fall weather rolled in, we took a moment to visit the beach and soak up summer just a little while longer.  the girls have never been swimming in such a large body of water.  adelaide was overjoyed.  lyla was cautious.  the whole gang was in good spirits.  i could have sat on the sandy shore for ever.  why had we not thought of this before, i wondered.  maybe next summer, we’ll make more visits.  it’s so important that the kids get in touch with nature every day.  and some days are better than others.  and it often seems like we are missing some of the beautiful resources our state has to offer.   next summer.  next summer… this ephemeral beauty won’t be forgotten.

    It was a great day at the beach. It was nice to meet with Carolyn and Mike for lunch and then watch the girls enjoy the water. All in all a very nice day.
