Here we are many years later still celebrating summer with a trip, however brief, to the beach. It is our summer’s last hurrah. Packing up for college awaits my daughter, a return to the office awaits my husband and in my studio, the teddy bears are getting quite impatient for some new friends.
I do believe this particular spot is one of my favorite places in all the world . . . and it still fills me with awe.
Here are a few photos of the beach at dusk. I like the reflection of the pier in this picture and . . .
the reflection of my husband's feet in this one.
Even at dusk the colors are wonderful -
and there are some last holdouts enjoying the surf, a stroll or a shell.
In the early morning, the beach goers return as well as the seagulls looking to score a bread crumb.
I wasn't certain the weather would be nice with the threat of rain and storms, but you can see what a great day it turned out to be.
Even in my blissful state I couldn't forget you my friends.
Maybe I should have done my studio in these colors? Perhaps I'll just file this under "Paint Ideas for Next Time."
