End of summer - part 2
I had a few road trips last week. One of them was for work, but it took me by a popular summer venue (okay, it was a little off the path, but I was already out in God's country so I decided to take a side trip).
I was dressed for work related events (meetings, interviews, etc) so I had to improvise on getting some photos. As much as I would have liked to change and hit the beach, it wasn't in the cards - or schedule.
It was also ridiculously windy at the lake. It may be hard to tell, but look closely and you can see the white peaks in the water. I had to use my tripod just to get from the car to the beach. After setting up there, I still had to hold onto the tripod to keep everything in place.
Here is one of the 2 families trying to stretch the summer out just a little longer. It was still 90 degrees and sunny, so they had the right idea and no crowded beach!
Keeping in the theme of celebrating summer to the end, I stopped by a river where there are all kinds of boating. Here is a family enjoying the open waterway. They were cute as they waved for the camera while speeding by.
And as the sun started to set, I couldn't resist one more shot of the peaceful fishermen. I don't think they caught anything, but the serenity was enough for me.
I hope you enjoyed my detours as I try to ease into autumn.
