|I can only imagine what it all looks like in full color!|
When everyone else has left the shore...it's time for us to go home. This year a few of us have stayed on a bit longer than usual and it has been a lot of fun! We really have had a lovely last month here and I look forward to a time when more and more of my friends and family stay longer and longer. This also means that we will all be older and older which may or may not be a positive. I guess it beats the alternative, to quote TJ. I still haven't quite become a local, so as a summer person, when summer goes, so must I.
The garden is just about tapped out! This may be one of the first times in history that we have consumed most of the garden. We have done an admirable job of using our resources this year. We have actually eaten or preserved most of our tomatoes. Some years we leave before we even have ripe tomatoes. This year we had a bumper crop and totally enjoyed them! The garden is starting to look a bit tired and trampled and we have been less than diligent with the weeding. Must be time to go.
I feel like one of the Von Trapp family singing, "the sun has gone to bed and so must I..." because when the days get shorter and the sun sets farther and farther along the horizon it can only mean it's time to go "home". So on this final night of yet another wonderful summer, I reluctantly say goodbye to the best place on earth. It really was a great summer....but aren't they all?

When the sun sets over the trees it's time to say goodbye.
