Goodbye for now...

It is the end of the summer for us, and we have to leave our neighbourhood here. Today could have been our last swim, but it felt a bit chilly, so we decided to go for a walk along the sea instead.

The beach was deserted except for a few die hards.

All the umbrellas and loungers gone - put away for the winter. Instead, the first sign of the winter sculpture: someone makes this every day during the winter and seeing it is a sure sign that the summer is over.

Enough people swimming to make me feel envious and regret that we did not brave the water.

A good day to go sailing though - sunny and windy.


  1. Today it is warm enough to swim in the Midlands!

  2. You come home to sunshine, let's hope it lasts. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

  3. I wonder if summer didn't end if we'd continue to enjoy it. A bit like eating strawberries and cream, or icecream or chocolate gateau stuffed with chocolate filling and gorgeous chocolate icing running down the sides like a chocolate fountain...
