Well . . . can you believe it? The last day of August!
It's been an amazing month with wonderful summer weather - perfect for beaches and barbeques and so many gatherings with family and friends.
Summer on the Island tends to be one, long, lovely blur - it's a good thing I took a few pictures!
Here are some of my favourite memories - just in time for the last Friday Fave Five of August.
1. Here is the highlight of summer 2012 ~ smiling at this little girl!!
in her "retro" shorts!
A sweet little family!
2. Hope you're not too tired of beach pictures - this is my favourite place to be in the summer.
and here is the perfect end to a perfect beach day!
I haven't worked my way through all 60 flavours yet! :)
3. Family and friends = fun
It was lovely to have my sister and her family home - we spend most of our days at her cottage. Josie came to the beach to meet her new great-auntie.
I had a wonderful day with girls I've known since I was 5 - a lot of "remember when" and laughter!
Every Wednesday this summer I went to the beach with these girls. We called ourselves the www group - wild Wednesday women. I don't know how "wild" we were - but we had a lot of fun!
4. Gathering flowers in my garden is a daily joy.
They were so simple to plant - just a few seeds in the ground and yet, they bring such pleasure.
Always a fresh bouquet for my kitchen table.
5. And for my final favourite ~ living on such a beautiful Island.
It's a photographer's dream.
Around every bend in the road, there's another beautiful vista.
Fields of gold,

Thank you so much for dropping in for a visit.
Now that summer is winding down, I'm hoping to return to regular blogging and blog visiting. I've missed you!
Have a wonderful Labour Day weekend!
