We went to the lake for yesterday's fall equinox. The morning had called for slippers and sweaters and mugs of hot beverages, but by afternoon the sun was shining high and the temps were in the 70's. It felt essential to soak up and savor the last bits warmth with bare feet and legs. So down to the water we went. I gathered stones and driftwood for future projects. My daughter gathered memories of wading and climbing for the colder days that are coming.
