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.
