La Fin de L'Été


There is a chill in the mornings. A mist coats the windows. The shadows are long and the rays are golden. The days continue to be warm and sunny lulling me into thinking summer will not end but I know the end is coming.

To take advantage of these last days of summer, we have been going down to our local beach to watch the sun set. You can tell that a change is coming. Last week the blue would linger in the sky tinted with golden. But tonight there were a few clouds and everything turned golden and pink. We took dinner tonight. I made a salade niçoise using green beans and tomatoes from our garden. The beach was surprising busy. A lot of families were out along with groups of friends and couple who had similar idea of having dinner at the beach.

After dinner, we sat along the waves and watched the sun slip behind the Olympics . I'm not ready for the rain.

We are leaving to California for a couple of days. My beau-père is having a milestone birthday and we're going down to help celebrate. There will be mariachi and lots of family.

Here are some more sunset shots. These were taken from Marine Park in Edmonds.

Some incredible sunsets around here lately - love your photos. I took some Friday night of the moon rising over Birch Bay and the water was just shining with the moon's reflection - but I'm always ready for rain!


Marta, these are just beautiful!

Beautiful photos Marta. Happy Birthday to your beau-père! I hope you have sunny warm weather!

Hi Marta, wow this is such a great post. I loved how you described summer's end. And those sunset photos are so beautiful.

Have a safe trip down to California! I love parties with great mariachi music. Have fun . . .

Gorgeous shots - I can't wait until we get to the pacific northwest next year.
