Farewell to summer

This is how I spent the last day of August....drinking mimosas with several friends at the pool.



Since I was the one taking pictures, I turned the phone around and got a still-wet selfie.
Onward to September!

    1. It seems to be headed this way. And now it's a cat 5!

  2. Much the same here. It was very hot, and the pool was our only respite.

    1. I love my friend's pool...we're always welcome to go swimming and we don't have to maintain anything!

  3. Here, too, very hot, without a pool, with the air conditioner in the house all day.

    1. It wasn't terribly hot here yesterday, but it was plenty warm enough for the pool.

  4. Much cooler here in SE England thank goodness. That pool looks very enticing ! What are Mimosas? Not heard of that as a drink.

  5. I usually hate the end of summer but not this year. It was way too hot for most of it. It looks like you celebrated it in a fun way. How nice to see your lovely face.

    1. I'm looking forward to fall this year. Too much hot weather (and a/c problems) this summer for my taste!

  6. I was going to suggest skinny dipping next time you are at the pool with the other girls but I thought better about making such a remark as it might be seen as lecherous.

    1. The last time I went skinny dipping I was 17 years old!

    1. You would have loved it, Anne Marie! We're a bunch of liberal Trump haters!

    1. Yes! Nothing like a little champagne to turn a small party into a real celebration!

  11. What a great way to end the summer. The photos are great! I would have loved listening to the anti-Trump talk!

  13. I don't know mimosas (only the flowers), but I certainly know about refreshing drinks on a hot summer's day (or evening).
    O.K. and I spent the last day of August between his shaded balcony and the village fountain, which is always cold no matter how many weeks of hot weather we've had. The balmy evening saw us sipping G&Ts under a starry sky.
    Sunday meant a bike ride into town to have huge ice creams before it was sadly time for me to get the train back home. And now it is September, and already a lot cooler.
