Summer's Last Hurrah

Good evening! Just now the sky and ocean and beach put on a lovely show for us, for the last sunset of Summer 2016. I am waxing nostalgic for  a summer that really never was, for me...and ignoring the two more hot months to come.

Instead I enjoyed the moment. What a gorgeous, soft summery sky it was.
Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second.'' [unattributed quote]

Besides my pt sessions I am taking a short walk every day. I try to go out with Mo and his walker to start.

Of course then they go on and I slowly return home.

Mo and I did look for some signs of Fall. Just one bright yellow leaf, on the very green grass.

Seed heads on the ornamental grasses.

A new and somewhay ugly fountain in a public space. [Seems to me it should be set into the ground with banks of flowers around it.]

When I'm not home for Mo's afternoon walk, I've been walking towards the beach. My goal is to be able to go to the October fleas.

It's very dry this year.

But Monday's thunderburst coaxed the beach roses into bloom.

Rose hips are more likely in September---bright green like tiny Granny Smith apples.

In the dunes are large flocks of odd carrier pigeons. hey find something there to feed on, and leave many tiny tracks in the soft white sand. Autumn migrations have begun.

Goodbye, sweet Summer. Welcome, Autumn!
