“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.
I miss Fall in Northwest Arkansas. Fall in Florida, well, it was 92 degrees yesterday. David and I went to the beach. It was beautiful, and I am very grateful to be able to live here. I really do love Fall here. It is still warm enough to enjoy the beach (even get into the water), and it is a lot less crowded than in summer.The water was crystal clear, and a nice breeze. It was just nice to sit and enjoy the sound of the waves. This is something I normally do with Carmen. David hates the sand, and would rather stay indoors or go to the mountains. I don’t blame him. But I love it here.I just miss trees that turn a color other than brown. I miss the crisp air in the evenings. I miss this… Oh, I know, that I should be grateful, and I am very grateful to live where most people come for their vacations. I just need to see this again in person. Fall. Trees with colors, yellow, orange, and bright reds.
Maybe next year we will travel to Northwest Arkansas for the turning of the leaves. I would love to do that again.
What is your favorite season, and why?
