Today I was strolling around historic Fairhaven as the end of the workday approached. Floors were being swept, chairs stacked and young clerks with evening plans stared at wall clocks with pleading eyes. But the position of the minute hand was just academic, nothing more would be priced, shelved or sold until tomorrow. Outside another transition was happening, the light was softer, temperature cooler and sun a little further south and lower than it was at the same time a few weeks back. I could sense summer slipping away as I sat on the wrought iron bench and watched a jovial group of runners dressed mostly in pinks and powder blue file by heading toward the trail that hugs the bay.
Tomorrow is the first day of school and despite not being of an age affected by mandatory attendance it still gives me the feeling that my summer is over. But it was a good one and I am glad I spent it in Bellingham. The other transition that occurs in a couple days is our latest pair of foster kittens, Sherlock and Watson, will be returned to the Whatcom Humane Society for adoption. If you want a sweet pair of brothers that play well together and enjoy sleeping on your lap stop by the Whatcom Humane Society.
I hope you enjoy the summer photographs and thanks for stopping by.
