while scrolling through photos on my phone from the last several days i realized how much time i spent outdoors, even amidst a 40-hour workweek. the temperature here is finally bearable! beachgoers are likely to see a gal in half a suit walking the beach at sunset; the urge to feel sand between my toes is too strong to waste time changing after work! this teeter totter between summer and fall is a thing to be savored, and i'm lucky to have a few four-day weekends in my future... the first of which starts tomorrow. we're packing up the car and heading to my birthplace, which, surprise surprise- is also right on the ocean. happy weekend!
