She knew this weekend was her last chance to soak in the ocean’s healing salt waters.  A nip in the air foretold a change in the weather that she refused to acknowledge.  But Mother Nature, being fickle in her ways, blew in a storm that prevented that last final swim. 

So she took solace in the warm sun beating down on her face.  In the salty ocean air.  In the feel of the sand between her toes.  She ignored the time of day as long as she could, knowing she would have to give in and leave it all behind soon enough.

She slowly climbed the wooded stairs leading to the other side of the dunes. One step. Two steps. When she reached the top she paused.  Turned.  Closed her eyes.  She licked her lips to taste that last bit of salt.  Breathed in the ocean’s sweet air.  And with a tear in her eye she whispered to herself.  Remember.  Remember.

  • Very well said. I'm always sad when summer turns into autumn. I am such a summer person.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  • Wow.

    Now I miss the beach!


    • It is 90 today… wonder if it will carry on to the weekend now that the storms are gone… can I cheat winter?

  • That was chillingly beautiful! You were turning a page.

  • Aw. Good-bye summer! See you next year!

    • Yup… see you next year! I am going to try and cheat though… if it is warm this weekend or next I'm planting myself at our local beach. Not quite the same, but the beach none the less!

    BEAUTIFUL!!! I love summer, I love the beach. But since being sick I'm so cold all the time, I'm kinda looking forward to wearing sweaters.

    I feel like I can feel the salt on my face……

  • Very beautiful, as a last page of a good book, very lirical.
