Summer's End

We decided to do something different and walk the beach instead of our usual city walking last night. I was able to get a few pictures of summer's last sunset this year.

(below) Sun shimmering on the water as we cross onto the island

I love the way the late day sun was playing around here:
The friendly dog on the boat barked at our dogs and they barked right back! Think they were saying "hey did you see those dolphins?!"

Big fireball.....going down.......
and down...........
and gone!

Fort Moultrie in the end of summer sunset:
Everywhere we went, the salty air was full of summer dragonflies.....zooming and soaring wildly around. Impossible to get a good photo of those things! Maybe you can spot a few in this photo? They remind me of little helicopters!

How did y'all welcome Fall in? Are you glad it's here?


  1. Beautiful photos! I had a girls' weekend in Charleston a few years ago and fell in love with the place! Happy fall to you!

  2. I am so glad fall is here, even though we're not feeling much cooler weather yet and won't probably until the end of next month.

    Did you take that wonderful shell home with you? I sure would have, a treasure from the sea.

    Have a great day ~ FlowerLady

  3. awwwww, so beautiful, so peaceful!! i love to be near the water!! we were at the beach yesterday!!!

  4. This was a nice goodbye to summer. And it is important to do that, not just welcome the next season, as much as we love it.

    Your pictures are beautiful and the sunset must have been gorgeous. You are so fortunate to live in a city with so much beauty all around you. To have the choice of taking your walk on those beautiful old streets, or to turn towards the ocean, how very nice!

  5. What a beautiful walk you had! I'm putting up my fall decorations this weekend - time to look for a pumpkin patch and get a few for the porch!

  6. What a pleasant way to end summer. - The sunset was lovely.

  7. I'm THRILLED fall is finally here!!!
    Lovely shots of the last sunset!!!
    Especially the dolphins rolling in the water.
    Miss them much!! (I'm from St. Augustine and grew up on the bay!!)
