Goodbye to Summer

Dear Summer,

You were a wonderful season this year- not too hot, but not dreary either. We had some laughs and no burns to be seen (that’s a long awaited first)! Sweet corn and BLT months have passed, but I will welcome them with open arms next year. My long awaited Fall is arriving, so I bid you goodbye… for now. -JL

As our last Summer hurrah, we visited family in Racine, Wisconsin last weekend.  Sadly, the sailing pictures are not very good, as the waves put me out of commission shortly after we hit the water. AJP got some participation points, though.

We waited out a few storms over lunch at the marina and watched a cardboard boat race- that was SO entertaining! If you ever get a change to see one, go. I promise you it will be worth it. We regrouped as the weather cleared and spent a wonderful evening on calmer waters!

Before heading home, we stopped out at the Wind Point Lighthouse. I absolutely adore lighthouses, their stories and the picturesque, peaceful settings they are always in. It’s hard to  believe that anything stormy ever happened on those beautiful shores.

Lastly, we went down to the beach to see the sailboat races. It was the last one of the summer. Too bad it got so overcast and chilly… Still a beautiful sight. We can’t wait to go visit again.

How are y’all saying your farewells to Summer? Anything specific you will miss?
