Summer days are drawing to an end. College starts this month, so the family is on one last excursion before textbooks and studies keep us closer to home. It was a perfect day at the beach! Sunshine, warm weather, and the scent of ocean's sandy beach was enjoyed by all of us. Tucked in a cozy motel for the night, we now await a day in the Olympic National Park tomorrow. As parents, Brent and I are cherishing each moment, as our children grown up and leave the nest too soon. New adventures await, but we hold on to the closeness of the past with fondness and create more memories still.
