Late Summer by the Sea

We drove along the coast until we found a place to walk, and ended up at Nun Mill Beach. Believe it or not, late August has had mostly sunny days and today was another. 8.29.16 Nun Mill BaysmWe ate our picnic by the water and found lots of beach glass. The fields beside the shore are a brilliant green and we followed a path up the hill to look out over Solway Firth and across to the Lake District.

On our walk, Jonathan pointed out a roe deer strolling across the field. This beautiful action photo by Alasdair Middleton shows just the reddish-brown color of its coat.

Late summer seems so intense–the sun (when it’s out), the fields, the animals are all in perfect health, we’re in a special moment poised between the seasons.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
