The all-too-soon waning days of summer

(Photo from my boat during a race earlier this month)

There's a few subtle hints that summer is on its way out...

The days are getting noticeably shorter. Sunset is nearly an hour earlier than it was during the longest early summer days just two months ago.

I'm noticing a lot of "Back To School Sale" flyers in the Sunday papers.

And lastly, I'm starting to feel desperate to get away for a few days on my sailboat while the weather is still awesome!

So I'll be away for a short trip, but Kirby will be here; and there is, of course, a nice selection of top-notch blogs for you to visit, conveniently listed on the right sidebar.

In the meantime, have fun, and be sure to enjoy summer while it's here!
