That's a happy Pup. I'm off to my nine day kitty sitting adventure this afternoon but before I left town we got in a walk at the beach. I haven't been down there since the weather cooled off.
You can definitely feel a change in the air but I think my neighbors across the road are getting a little ahead of themselves. I should say that they also still have all their Christmas lights up but since they are the working parents of four small kids I will not judge.
The field of Black-Eyed Susans at the park were more black-eyed than Susan. Mine are too.
The Crepe Myrtles are already starting to turn.
Weird birds were everywhere. These are not your usual sea gulls. These things were the size of an eagle and they were all over the place. I think those are Great Black-Backed Gulls and they must be making a stop on their trip somewhere. At least I hope so. They are making a huge mess in all the places they were hanging out. They are very scary close up. They have sharp looking beaks and eyes that look at you like they are sizing you up for a meal.
The Bay itself was rough and dirty. The beach patrol was on duty raking up all the junk that was washing up on shore. The beach was practically empty which is a good thing since the place was a stinky mess. They are closing the pier this weekend for a wedding. Good luck with that. I hope those giant seagulls are gone by then or it might be a wedding to remember. Lol....
That looks like a scene from Hitchcock's The Birds! I am so happy to welcome FALL!!!ReplyDelete
I'm thankful for any cool weather - this summer heat has drained me!ReplyDelete
I agree, those birds look like the beginning of Hitchcock's movie. Hopefully, they will move along before the wedding day!
I wonder if Dorian is close enough to be affecting the birds and your water. In any event, your photos are definitely showing signs of fall. Btw, your pup is Adorable!ReplyDelete
Pumpkins are starting to appear around here, too. Enjoy your kitty-sitting duty.ReplyDelete
Oh , No Im not ready Deb!!! The weather is ideal here. We have a beautiful day to go to the local county fair! The pumpkin is too soon. Sorry. IM a huge halloween lover, but not yet...not yetReplyDelete
I'm glad that it's cooling off a bit for you but I'm NOT ready for fall decorations yet. It's still August! Those birds are spooky looking. Dennis hates wild birds. They are so unpredictable. They used to get in the chimney at our first house and fall into the furnace no matter how much he tried to block it off. He would have to get them out of the house and they would dive bomb him. Your picture would really freak him out! :-)ReplyDelete
That is a wonderful photo of Pup! She looks so content. These cooler nights and days with lower humidity are such a delight. I love that I need to wear a sweatshirt when I walk in the early morning. Hope you have a wonderful time with the cats! I am sure you will make progress on all your projects.ReplyDelete
Gulls are intimidating to say the least!ReplyDelete
Hope the kitty-sitting goes well.
Giant scary seagulls... sounds like a Hitchcock movie waiting to happenReplyDelete
Nice walk, I hope the birds stay out of the wedding that could be exciting:)ReplyDelete
What a little cutie pie. I'm guessing she wont be to happy once she realizes you will be gone for nine days though. ;-) I'm still waiting for cooler weather here. I'm so ready for fall!ReplyDelete
I hope that wedding went off without a lot of bird poop happening.ReplyDelete
