last days of summer



only two days in and it really feels like fall!  brrr.

we just got back from a late summer holiday on saltspring island and lucked out with beautiful weather.

we visit the island each summer but went later this year so we could attend the annual fall fair.  

my favourite event at the fair was the "zucchini drag races".


local kids dressed up zucchini's, added some wheels and sent them flying down the racetrack.

so fun!  and maybe a bit dangerous when a few flew over the hay bale barriers.

we beachcombed at vesuvius bay - running from crabs and collecting shells, sea glass and sand dollars - 


and hadley caught a tiny flounder.


the bay is quite shallow so it warms up [just enough to soften the ocean chill] and hadley swam every day.


heading home we came sooo close but missed our sailing by one car.  blarg!

we got the orange pylon instead.


good bye summer.

hello fall!
