With the leaves floating down to the ground and seeds being spread, I thought I would remind you all of what a great summer we have had in these parts. The best summer I can recall for many a year.
This image was taken this summer and reflects the beach experience in a typical UK seaside town. The sandy beach is backed by a mini-fair, arcades of rattling and ringing machines, fish & chip shops, places to buy sticks of rock and a few bingo places. In addition, the striped decked chair is very much alive and well on the promenade at the back of the beach, though I am somewhat disappointed not to have captured the ubiquitous handkerchief on the head (note I was the other side of the camera lens).
Visiting Weymouth with the nephews was a real throwback to my own seaside visits when I was much, much younger.
I am pleased to say that the sun continues to shine here in Cork, though the temperatures have long since dived below what I consider swimmable.
