I have to say that this is my most absolute favorite kind of weather--warm sun, cool breeze, softness in the air, and golden sunshine. I love August because the colors change here from the usual heavy west coast green and gray to golden grass and blue skies and water with a counterpoint of bright and flowers.
A calm afternoon by the breakwater with a sailboat idling by.
The Canada geese are gathering at the beach. Some of them winter here, some fly south.
And a beautiful single rose blooming along a fence.
Here's a toast to August.
