Fall Beach Day

fallmorning.jpgKa-whompf! I heard that sound this morning as I was walking the beach. It was the Grinch, dropping a huge aluminum canoe onto the beach. One that he had single-handedly manhandled from the Jim/Jack/GG’s garage to the beach. Fortunately, I had already unlocked it (the garage, not the canoe) because apparently The Comm locked it up during our Yarn Store Boondoggle yesterday. So we (me, Mouse, UberKW and Radical Betty) kayaked over to Cedar Point, rafted a bit to drink licorice tea and eat dark chocolate, then headed over around the back of the island and home. Lunch and oven cleaning, then an afternoon on the beach. At first it wasn’t very warm but eventually it got hot. Swimming ensued. It did feel like fall today. When I was a kid, I can remember a day like today. I was looking at a deciduous bush at the front of the deck. The sun was behind it and I remember thinking, “by this time next week, I will be in school.” That bush is no longer there. There are some pine trees there now. But next week, I will be in school. Or whatever. There will still be some good days here but we are at the end. I am incoherent. Love y’all and goodnight. Click here or on the picture for more beach day pics.
