The Sunday Traveler’s Summer Wrapup

sayulitabeachumbrellas

Summer is wrapping up here in the Sunday Traveler’s corner of the world. Summer, slipping through my fingers, and through my mind’s eye. Only the picture in mind is of days and days of preparing for a move, the move, and the unpacking from the move; plus a few other assorted and sundry items of family business that seem to have gobbled up any thought of lazing about on a beach. The photo above was taken in Sayulita, Mexico, where I truly do remember lazing about and eating fish tacos in one of those chairs. A trip that began with last minute flight changes, running through airports to make connections, to finally get to our destination in Mexico….with the plane landing on the wrong runway. Aye chihuahua! More on that next week. But, as is our way, we’ve saved the best for last, and will take our summer vacation in the fall as we usually do, when we return to another tropical setting, a place that has our hearts wrapped around its aloha.

    Beautiful capture of the beach, though I am so not ready to bid Summer farewell. I never really am, to be honest. You’ve the right idea, taking a Summer vacation in the Fall. That’s one way to extend the season — and Hawaii is the perfect place to do so.

      I can’t remember why we began the fall vacations years ago; I think maybe it was that once our nest was empty, and no kids to worry about with school schedules, we took off just because we could. We cannot seem to get Hawaii out of our system 🙂

    The first thing I ever did in Mexico was eat fish tacos beside the beach!

    Summer went way too fast this year which makes me sad. Wish we had longer summers here!

  6. Summer is definitely singing its last verses – at least where I am now. But I don’t mind, I look forward to autumn, to the beautiful colours and the crisp air. Your photo definitely tastes of summer. Lovely and intense blue colours.

      It has been one of the more memorable summers for my husband and I, some good memories, and some not so good, but that’s all part of everyday life. Memories of past trips spur us onward to make more happy travel memories. Thanks!

    Sounds like you’re heading for my island home…Hawaii. Actually Maui is where I was born, but Oahu is where we visit because that’s where our families live, my husband’s and mine. However, anywhere you go in the islands…you’re wrapped in Aloha. Lovely sentiment. Hugs…and mahalo for beginning my Sunday with the Aloha Spirit…

      I am indeed heading over to Oahu in just three weeks. It’s been a couple of years, and we’re getting that pull telling us we need to visit again. We love it there, anywhere in those wonderful islands. Aloha wishes to you this Sunday, and always.
