Summer, Mon Amour

It's the last day of summer. Cheated of 2-3 extra days of my favourite season. But it's been a very good summer indeed.

The beach.
The crisp fresh saltwater of Bronte Beach for the first time in years.
Fiji.
Snorkelling.
Cocktails.
Bikinis that still fit (thank christ).
Silvers of mango.
Blue sky.
Heat on my skin.

Adieu summer, see you in June.

Summer's Almost Gone, The Doors*
Summer's almost gone
Summer's almost gone
Almost gone
Yeah, it's almost gone
Where will we be
When the summer's gone?
Morning found us calmly unaware
Noon burn gold into our hair
At night, we swim the laughin' sea
When summer's gone
Where will we be
Where will we be
Where will we be
Morning found us calmly unaware
Noon burn gold into our hair
At night, we swim the laughin' sea
When summer's gone
Where will we be
Summer's almost gone
Summer's almost gone
We had some good times
But they're gone
The winter's comin' on
Summer's almost gone
* Possibly my favourite Doors song, although it is like choosing a favourite child, or pair of shoes.

And here we are in Seattle...today...just a *hint* of Spring in the air...The Sun was shining...just beautiful! But I know we have many more days of Winter before Spring really hits us.
