Managed to catch bath time at the falls, Canada Goose style.
The heat of summer, typically fuels our wandering impulses. A spontaneous drive to the beach, or a weekend up north. Now that coronavirus has reined us in, we search seasonal delight closer to home: roses in the garden, the emerald green of farm fields, and the leisurely hunt of a furry fisherman.

Summer cruising reveals many angles –
front yard sales – what’s used is new again.
Lakeside patios – the best of the season –
good food, and live entertainment too.

Remember lush days,
pops of purple in summer’s

Ready, set, go:
I miss summer already!
Thank you to Nancy Merrill for this week’s photo challenge: Ready, set, action.
