Ode to Summer’s End – Traffic jams getting to the beach for one final weekend before Summer ends. Two more days left for this holiday weekend. After that, the tourists will slowly leave to return home and children will be in school. Ah, a sigh of relief, the beach will belong to the local residents once again. My favorite time for the beach is winter. Bundle me up in a jacket and walking alone on the beach is like a poem in my life.
