Well, kind of, one could say, with temperatures still up in the 90s on some days. Even down here, nearer to the beach, one is still hoping, hoping for a slight nip in the air at night – but no…

Sometimes however, very early in the morning, when the mist rising from the sea is still visible, everything looks as if one stepped into a fairy tale.

And it is pleasantly cool. Autumn weather – well, kind of.

Sunset With Pelican

We will probably never turn into ‘real’ beach people – but very early in the morning or at sunset after a rather hot day the beach can be quite lovely now and then.

Rain, Glorious Rain

The first rain of the season came very early this year, earlier than I can remember for quite a few years. All good, all good. And yes, this year too neighbors came out and rejoiced.

Five minutes only, but it is a start.
