Goodbye summer . . .

Alia's shoes at Seaside

I took this picture at Seaside in June, when the summer was just beginning . . . it’s particularly fitting because my youngest daughter (who owns these shoes) has a habit of taking her shoes off EVERYWHERE (or not even wearing shoes), and then she can’t find them and we all have to participate in the Big Shoe Hunt before we can get in the car and go anywhere. Or, like this weekend, she just doesn’t even bother to get shoes on in the first place, and we arrive at the farmers market to find that she’s barefoot . . .

This photo reminded me of summer’s end, but my middle daughter gave it a different twist when she commented, “It looks like she was eaten by a sea monster and only her shoes were left!” Well, that’s one interpretation . . .
