beach time like this running out

Time is definitely running out of days like this on the beach here this summer--besides fall arrives on Sunday. I took this beach photo 9/16--it was a beautiful day on the beach and we had a little lunch and fire. Then Larry rescued someone trying to pull a camper up the rd and was having problems--his truck literally pulled the truck (they were from Indiana) and the fold down camper UP THE RD to the highway. I don't know what the grade is where they were stuck but it was not a pretty sight. I waited on the beach. LOL We figure it was our last day to ride with the 4-wheeler. We gathered some coal for the fire pit at the house.

The flower--well that was taken a few weeks ago on the beach. Amazing how they grow like that. Last Sunday the 16th, all the flowers like that looked like dandelions with their seeds ready to blow in the wind.

Speaking of flowers, I still have flowers blooming in my yard--roses, portabelia (sp) a few petunias, daisies, and other wild flowers. The bees are so bad they won't let me pick the raspberries. We had frost last night so I should try to get everything left in the garden--only potatoes, carrots, and a couple of cabbages left to reap outside. The wasps chased me out of the garden more than once yesterday. Still have tomatoes, herbs, and zucchini in the greenhouse.

Rain is predicted for the next day or so.



MOST LOVELY!!!! you let the bees run you out of the garden?? well, If I was there-I WOULD be getting the raspberries-LOL...Love reading your blog--kinda like reminiscing!! I need to do more of that myself--thanks for sharing! I love your scenic pics--keep them coming :o) love you

Even fall is cold there? Maybe there will yet be an Indian summer weekend or week, or even day! If there is, I know you won't waste it. =)

It snowed a little today, but didn't stick. Some of your buddies are getting ready to go to market...the end of October. I'd like to be a fly on the wall with that crazy group!
take care..
