End of Summer Dreamin’!

When the weather cools here in the mountains my thoughts turn to Florida!

Ship-1

I found this ship at a Thrift store this past week and I put some of the photos of the Gulf Coast of Florida with it for my Mosaic this week!

We’ll be here in the mountains for a little while longer so I’ll enjoy the nice cool weather and the beautiful view of the mountains!

What are you dreaming of now? Do you have special plans for the last few weeks of summer?

Love that ship! What a terrific find! It's perfect for your mosaic, too :)
Lovely pics of the Gulf!
It's still a tad warm and humid, but has cooled off considerably. I'm actually looking forward to a cool morning to enjoy a cup of coffee in my Florida room. There's a seafood festival coming up over on the Gulf I'm looking forward to, also!

Beautiful ship and photos! I hope you get the most out of the end of summer in the mountains. I am actually looking forward to fall, it is my favorite time of year, the colors are so beautiful here. :)
Have a great week!

The photo is amazing, let me tell you what I see, to the left I see an angel with hair piled on top of her head, kneeling almost, then something that looks like a fish, and up in the far right corner , the profile of a man's face!!! xo

Enjoy the mountains as long as you can. I'm in mourning about the end of summer. I'm going to miss my Mr. Mom. He heads back to school for meetings next week. We took the girls to a superhero baseball themed game Saturday. Nothing says summer like hotdogs and peanuts. I'm holding on as long as I can.

Love your mosaic. I am hanging onto summer with everything in me, even though it has been a cool wet one. We are hoping for one more trip out in the fifth wheel before I have to head back to China for business. Seems to always mark the beginning of autumn for us and the beginning of a busy time for me. We don;t get much autumn here in this part of Alberta. We go from summer to winter almost overnight. Last year we had snow in October and it never went away.

Great Photos. I am dreaming of Hawaii since I know winter is right around the corner here in Upstate NY. I need to get out and really enjoy what is left of summer!

Looking forward to cooler weather, and a few rides up in the mountains of Colorado. Picking chokecherries, and wild plums. And doing some fishing and grilling. Also, looking to do more cast iron cooking this fall.

Lallee said...

I'd love to get more reading in before the summer is over. In September I'll be nursing hubby after he has knee replacement surgery. We'd both rather be hiking the mountains ;-)

I'm looking forward to cooler weather, too!

Adore the ship!! Plans for the rest of the summer? Just wearing my flip flops!! And I'm already thinking about which beach town to go to next summer! It was soooo nice to have the beach right there..., and hear the waves from the apartment. Miss that for sure.
