Summer Fun with Friends

I heard a funny saying the other day: "Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end, the faster it goes!" Well for summers the most, it does just seem to fly by...

And very recently the weather in sunny Calif has been hot and not just warm but HOT. Up in the 90s on the coast which is quite rare. It's like a Santa Ana but without the dry winds. And clear -so clear like winter days after a good hard rain. You can see every detail of the distant hills, and lots of stars at night and the colorful sun rises and sunsets....what a show by Mother Nature. So as to not waste these lovely evenings when there's still plenty of daylight left after work, I went to Wine Steals in Cardiff with Lori last night and then tonight sat on Sunset Hill with Lyn at Dad's yard, to share wine and pizza and watch the brilliant coral sky fade into the Pacific. (the dogs napped in the car after their play time). The moon rose crystal clear and casting a long bright arch on the shimmering sea. On they way from my place the bank sign said it was 83 degrees at 7pm...this is most unusual for us. By this time of the evening it's time for a sweater, even in summer.

So Lyn and I enjoyed our meal and we reflected how the summer has been speeding by...

but tonight I was looking through my photos on my computer and I realized how much fun I'm having this with friends, relatives and with the dogs.
Trips, picnics, parties, parades, classes, dining, dates and activities.

Dinner on the patio with the pups... I love the long days of summer; and although it's been warmer than I like, the balmy nights are great for walks and star gazing. Here's to summer!
