We had our indian summer this weekend, glorious days filled with warm sunshine. Although I went out to the beach for a bit yesterday I didn't take any photographs - just sat in my chair thinking, contemplating, taking it all in. There's definitely a different feel to being out there at this time of year, and many of the people who had come out were having fun, playing amid the snow fences the DNR is in the process of putting up; 'IT' is coming as much as I do not want to face it.
My photo, above, was taken while I was in Florida, a different atmosphere there too during the week although the weekends still bring out crowds of people. I enjoy the solitude so much.
