Farewell Tad!

  I don't have a summer home,
nor a cottage in the woods,
(although some might argue that my house is like a cottage and it is in the woods)
or even one by the water..
but I do have some favourite summer spots
and this summer
wthout a doubt it has been

There is something about that beach
that you can walk on for miles....

From the village all the way down to the dunes.

All forms of sea life,
some small and living within shells

                                        and others rather large
visiting as I do, 
on an annual basis. Strangely enough
these whales come back with their babies...who then come back with theirs.
I think I might have started the same trend. My mother has come
here with me over the years and now my daughter spends her summers working here....

They all add to the beauty of this place.....
But once September rolls around,
the weather takes hold,
people pack up,
homes are closed up for the winter
and hotels and restaurants are boarded up,
slowly the village life winds down as summer staff head back to school...
Many of them after working here
at this lovely old hotel....
So, with the long weekend coming to an end,
time for me to say farewell...
until next year.
Do you have a favourite summer spot?

 Does that mean I have to put away my red patent leather ballet flats?

  3. What beautiful views of your favorite summer spot. My favorite spot is by the water too - but on the other side of our huge country, in BC. I go there summer and winter, though, as I don't mind fog and drizzle.
