Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer

    Then followed that beautiful season…Summer…
    Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
    Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 


Summer begins today at 1:16 PM EDT.  The Pacific Northwest has had a cold, wet spring and I think it’s safe to say that everyone in Seattle is looking forward to a stretch of warm, sunny days.  One of the great things about being in this neck of the woods in the summer months are the long days.  The sun rose at 5:11 this morning and will set at 9:11 this evening. Light is streaming in through the window as I write this and it sure feels good!  I have the door to the deck open and the air is fresh and warm. Let’s hope this is a good omen for lots of sun and warmth this summer.   Mother Nature graced us with a beautiful day yesterday to say goodbye to spring.  It wasn’t bright and sunny, but  there was enough blue sky and light to put smiles on our faces and a spring in our step.  I was able to wear capris and didn’t need my down vest – a good thing!  The girls and I said goodbye to spring with a walk along the seawall in Lincoln Park.

Can you see the lovers on the grass?

As is often the case in the Pacific Northwest, we see more blue sky by the end of the afternoon, leading to beautiful evenings.

We enjoyed our evening walk along Sunset Drive.

This was the view we saw before we shut our eyes last night.  It’s always hard for me to close the blinds.

The following photos are of last week’s full moon.

Wishing you a summer filled with love and laughter.

      The photos of yesterday’s walk were taken with my phone. I must remember to take my camera with me when I go out on our walks. And I’m going to get a tripod for night shots.
