Goodbye, Summer 2008

I woke up this morning and it was only 69 degrees. In only two more days, school begins here in New York. The skies are lovely and absolutely clear but there is that feeling of fall in the air. In no time at all, we'll be picking pumpkins somewhere. Fleeces and long sleeves will make their appearance, chilly chilly mornings, very cool and very crisp. Gone is corn and tomato picking as we soon welcome the harvest time.
I thought I would post a few nice summer pictures today, just so we can remember what it was this year. Summer eye candy seems a nice way to say goodbye to the season. FO at the bottom of these for those of you keeping track of knitting things. First up, photography.

Jones Beach tower and Seagull.

Goodbye Summer......sun set at Jones beach, ugly light post in the way....

Not to spoil the mood, but I did finish one last pair of socks for the season...the seeded ribbing. If you want more pictures, Ravel them here.
