They tell me it’s autumn but it’s a little hard to believe when the sky is soft summer blue and the sun is warm and sparkling diamond-lights on the sea.
We’re still heading to the beach – sitting with our faces to the sun, breathing the salt air and listening to the rhythmic breaking of the waves against the sand. Do you know the sound of waves is healing? It’s the most peaceful place in the world to me.
yes, and still swimming!
We’re kayaking on the river, our feet dangling in the warm water.
And exploring new rivers, kayaking through marshes and a culvert right to the river’s head.
We’re picking sun-warmed tomatoes and eating them juicy fresh from the garden.
We’re feasting our eyes on the flowers, still blooming madly in the flowerbeds, window-boxes and garden.
I’m sure I’ll get over my summer crush in time to enjoy the Island autumn beauty when it arrives.
There’s no doubt it’s magical too.
