Summer Day, Summer Day....


Hello, my friends! Yes, today seems like a summer day. At almost 60* and no wind, after recent frigid temps and ice storms and early snow---well today is just about perfect.

Let's put on our beach clothes and go to the beach! C'mon! (Oh okay, you can wear your hoodie. And shoes, sigh.)

What's this? On the fence? A random bauble...

Look at the baby blue summer sky!

And the softly lapping waves.

The serene sand and dunes and grasses....

A wonderful huge V of sea ducks, maybe scoters? [pls enlarge]

A hint of the true date of December, the wintry grasses and tiny birds' tracks. They love the seeds here.



The fog rolled in as I headed home...just as if it was July.

On this first day of winter, a gift of this ''summer'' day.

And, tomorrow: the final flea. I am so excited, I hope it is busy and I find many traeasures. Wish me luck!
