I know that the season doesn’t officially change for another month but with Labor Day approaching and children returning to school, it ‘feels’ like the end of the summer.
Growing up, Labor Day weekend was the unofficial end to summer because the swimming pools closed, the activities scheduled by the Parks & Rec department at the community playground were finished and there would be no more family trips to the Chesapeake Bay until school let out the following year. Even as a kid I found that to be depressing.
For now however, the weather and temps continue to be fantastic so it seems to me that it’s a great time to slip down to the beach with your big umbrella, sunscreen, tinted glasses, a cold drink and the book The Sea Keeper’s Daughter’s. An excellent way to extend the fun.
Happy reading everyone!
