Farewell Summer


The final morning of our trip, we walked for a last look at the beach on the Chesapeake. Sigh. I'd love to be there now!

Along the way, I snapped a few floral delights. I have no idea what kind of grass this is?

To the airport and what a fun time I had with my camera here to pass the time.  Thought this made for a great reflection photo! BTW, I also learned a few more of the flags of different US States up above.


Sky shot.  All too soon it was over.


Thanks for your visit!

  12. I love the grass, but have no idea what kind it is. Always a little sad when an adventure comes to an end, but it's always nice to return home, too. I always seem need a vacation after my vacation! Pretty hibiscus. Happy Friday!

  25. Good trips always pass by so quickly. Today I'm thinking of a beach we visited in Nova Scotia called "Blomidon", and how much I'd like to go beach combing there today... Instead, I will go comb through my gourd patch to see what surprises it has cooked up for me.
