sweaty little head ginormous bubbles beech tree cave relaxing happy picnic flying
A few scenes from our picnic lunch at the museum last week. There was the most enormous cave inside of a cluster of american beech trees that lured us all away from our food and kept us covered in dirt and out of the sun on a crazy hot day. There's some kind of magic being under the canopy of a huge tree, perfect light.
These summer days are slipping away and I am really starting to feel fall at our heels. Tonight I had a faculty meeting and I start teaching again next week. I have to remind myself that September is still wonderful weather and it doesn't start getting cold for a while here (and of course the cold has its charm too).
We are packing right now for our final little trip of the summer, heading out to Martha's Vineyard for a long week-end to meet up with some of my family. It should be lots of fun, but we're walking onto the boat, so figuring out how to haul the car seat and beach gear is a little puzzle that's being worked out as I type. Good thing we both love a good puzzle!
