AS SUMMER COMES TO AN END...by b. Malin

THINGS TO REMEMBER...

Lover Man at Sunrise whispering in my ear ever so softly, "You're Beautiful"...And then Making Love.

The Sound of the Surf as it roars in to lick my Thighs... and me, Loving it!

The long walks on the crowded sandy Beach...just the two of us... in our own dimension.

The sounds of Enjoyment...the Sea Gulls, the Little Children, The Young and the Old...Laughter fills the air...Worries of the moment left behind.

The Red, White & Blue of our Country's Flag flowing Freely in the Ocean Breeze and all of us with our Freedoms to do as we please...May that Never End.

The visits from Family and Friends and the never ending Parade to buy Ice Cream at "Custard's Last Stand"...The Ritual of it all.

The Grandkids...coming and going. Those Treasured Moments shared and remembered as Happy Memories...May they never End... as their Generation starts new trends. They are so Bright and Beautiful...with the innocence of Hope, for a Wonderful future.

I also want to remember on this Day, those that protect us both Far and Near... and pray they stay Safe until they are able to join their loved ones in creating their own Happy Memories.

Peace and Love to all my Family and Friends...and Hub Friends, and Everyone Near or Far who as ever Wished Upon a Star...or had a Private Moment in the Dark and Shared some Love with Someone...Even if it was Only for One Summer Season...It would be something to Smiled about and Remembered... as this Summer Season comes to an end.

What a lovely way to end another beautiful summer by the sea.

My favorite time at the beach is just beginning as the weather is likely to stay warm but not hot and the crowds will thin out during the weekdays. Weekends will still bring an influx of tourists and activities for the many festivals that will abound.

Still, it's fitting to say an official goodbye to summer and you've done a great job of that.

We are getting short changed with summer here in B.C. It took so long to get here this year. Hopefully it will linger at least until the official start later this month and maybe beyond. I'm not holding my breath though. Sounds like you have a wonderful summer.

Beautiful and awesome, b. Malin...as always. I felt like I was there with you, watching from the corner of your world like a fly on the wall. Cool end to summer. Around here...if feels as if ours has finally began. Funny huh, with summer just about over. Mother nature messed up in our neck of the woods. Great hub! Voted it so... : )

Beautiful thoughts. It is somewhat sad when summer ends. But then again, maybe this fall and winter will brings their own joys! :-)

The beach . . . or anywhere near water says summer and relaxed days. I love the name -- Custard's Last Stand. We're still having lots of summer temps in TX. High 90's and 100's. Keep that LoverMan hot though -- whatever the mercury reads! Ha!

Hi James, I guess all the Seasons are Special to Someone...I'm just not a WINTER person and my Lungs don't do well in the Cold...And so we will head South in Dec. And of course I will continue to write! But right now I'm still here on the Jersey Shore...and today is a Beach Day! Sept. is the best kept Secret on how Beautiful it is here as well as October! Thanks for Enjoying my Hub!

Sally, we were HOtT Hot, Hot, in the Hot Tub Last Night! You keep cool in Texas my friend, and I pray for Rain for you...I know how much it's needed there. "Custard's Last Stand" is the place to get the BEST ice cream cones...Mmmm Mouth watering flavors.
