And just like that, it's over.

Summer ended quite abruptly here this year. Although it wasn't exactly beach weather, we made one more trip over Labor Day weekend.

So until next year...

Goodbye to chasing seagulls across the sand. Sorry we scared you!


Goodbye to playing with Daddy in the sand and lugging bucket after bucket of water up the beach only to immediately dump it out upon reaching our destination.


Goodbye to running down to the waves with sissies.


Goodbye to searching for rocks and shells. Mostly rocks. To throw.


Goodbye to covering ourselves in mud. And filling our bathing suits with sand.


Goodbye, waves. Have a nice winter.

Thanks, everyone. I was just going to post the pictures and as I was doing so, the commentary just came out.
