Hello from Sunday night and a last for the 1st of October

October 1, 2017

Hello from Sunday night everyone.
Where has our September gone?
I just blinked and it’s October.

The weather’s been really lovely, so we decided on one last dip in the ocean.
Inspired by a lady swimming about, I was the brave one and walked in…

One inch at a time!
The stomach is always the worst.

Then Robert got in.

He went for the “just dive in” approach!

Next Chloe dipped her toes in.

Ata girl!

Then, the inevitable happened!

What a glorious last day for a swim.

After we dried off a little, Chloe and I went beachcombing.

Chloe was trying to find the perfect piece of driftwood for her airstream, but every piece she loved was attached to 20ft of log.

We stayed on the beach for an hour or so in the very warmth of the day.
Now autumn has well and truly rolled in. Time for golden leaves, chrysanthemums and pumpkin spice, but this afternoon was the best way to wrap up our summer. 😀

Hope you’ve all had a lovely summer and are now getting ready for fall.

    A celebratory last swim for the season. Very picturesque location. The water must have been invigorating, braving the water’s chill is impressive especially this time of the year. Like you, I always walk in gingerly. I hear, taking the plunge quickly, as R did, is supposed to be easier? Looking forward to Fall color and spending time outside in warm sweaters and light jackets.

    i love the cooler temps at night, its so nice to get into bed and snuggle down into the covers vs kicking them off and having the fan or AC OR BOTH on to cool the night … not sure i would have gone swimming with you but it was fun to see you all enjoying yourselves
