Last Day Of August 2016

Long Sands Beach

Long Sands Beach

Just like that, it’s the last day of August!

I say it every year, but I’m not sure how it is possible.

Summer flew this year.

Summer hours at work went by so fast that I didn’t even have a chance to complain that I was getting tired of going in early two days.  LOL!  : )

We had hot weather!

Not a lot of rain.  No complaints there either, except the lawns are looking thirsty.

Summer officially ends late September.

But, we know it is really over after Labor Day weekend!

Thank you Summer of 2016 for being a great one!

Weakness For Pretty Ribbon!

So, I hadn’t been to Michael’s craft store in over a year!

Last week I popped in for about thirty minutes.

The ribbon called to me right away!

The turquoise stripe could look so pretty on beach themed scrapbook pages!!!

They were also having a sale on paper.  I picked up ten pieces and put them back before I left the store.  The pile of paper I already have is just crazy!!!

August At Stage Neck Inn

If possible I think our August visit was even better than June!

The buffet breakfasts were so good!

It was a bit more crowded than it was in June, but never felt full or noisy!

I like how they added the welcome gifts this year.  A very nice touch.
