Over the weekend the weather shifted from cool back to summer heat! Today we decided to take full advantage of this last taste of warm weather by going to the beach. I half expected things to be cooler by the shore, but the sun and sand were hot and it felt almost like August except for the changing leaves. The water on the other hand seemed to know exactly what month we were in. It was quite brisk, but I was determined to get one last swim in and, once my body adjusted, it felt surprisingly good to splash around in the cold... especially knowing I could run back to my warm towel and take a nap in the sun.
