Yeah, it’s back to reality. But boy was it a nice escape. I had the most wonderful dinner with friends last night and some great walks and laughs and well you know, its the beach so it’s just a great time.
I got a nice bit of exercise. The water is still nice and warm. The sand is still beautiful. Candy Kitchen is still in stock. The people are friendly and the food is great. Oh yeah, there are no CROWDS.
September is a great month to hit the shore. All the benefits of summer without being shoulder to shoulder at the beach or highway.
You also run into the more year-round residents who are just the most friendly people around it seems. While it’s true some things close up for the season, there is still a lot open.
I’m just starting to realize I’m going to have to carry these memories through our long and grey winter season. Panic is setting in already at the thought of cold weather. But we still have a month or so of tolerable weather so I won’t start going off about that yet.
