a few photos (overdue) from the Upper Tine

The change into autumn has begun; less humidity, cooler nights, and Alas! it begins to grow dark well before 8:00 these days. In honor of the waning summer, following are a few selects from that weekend we went to the North Fork of Long Island last month. I cannot help but to get sad at the passing of summer, no matter how hot it was; I think this must be an artifact of my school-aged self. The putting away of summer things, having to accustom oneself to proper shoes again, and long sleeves, layers. The inescapable back to the grind-ness of it all (despite having been quite busy all summer). I must say I’ve enjoyed this summer; it has been flush with work, friend and family visits and even art- and happily with many more swimming expeditions than last year.
