Is summer over?
Often I prefer to take trips after school has started in the fall as our September weather is usually beautiful, but that is also when I hope to go to the Spokane area for a week or so. Eastern Washington is cooler and more comfortable then than it is in the summer and we coastal residents are not used to hot temps. Maybe we will go there and down to the ocean for a few days. But we do need to rebuild the tow dolly in order to safely take the Beetle along and you got to have a tow car.
We did go to the local Skagit County Fair this past week and Pat was a lot braver than me and had a caricature drawing done of her by a artist who was there. I'll post it here and see what you all think of it.
I guess it is okay but I think I like some of my photos of her a lot better. But these things are not done to try to make them an actual portrait. And this was done just two days before she spent the morning at her hair dresser. Oh well.
And yes, I am wondering if summer is over also but they say it'll be in the 90s down here which might reassure me that it's not. My fingers are cold this morning typing though. Our mornings have been in the 40s again.
Looks like the warmer weather is back, at least for a few days.
hope your trips bring you some rest and relief.
Meno said it perfectly about the caricature. Anyways, they are always fun to see how an 'artist' sees you.
