Finger Lakes Summer “Good-bye” to the Summer of 2010

September 7, 2010 at 1:24 am Leave a comment

Saying goodbye to summer in New York State is a sad event. Summers are short, and Upstaters like me, pack-in intense outdoor activities from dawn until dusk.

This particular summer was the MOST spectacular I can remember — an entire summer of beautiful hot swimmable days. Never a 45 degree 4th of July, or damp, millipede-infested August.

With sadness I say goodbye to: summer, to my first 49 years of childhood, and to my son Alex who just left for college. Goodbye to days in a damp suit because its just too hot to get dressed.  Goodbye Day Lilies and Black Raspberries,

There is SO MUCH to look forward to: raking leaves, the changing colors around the lake, hiking w/out mosquitos, apples, cider, pumpkins, lots of squash, horse chestnuts, the last swim of the season, closing the camp, finding my sweaters again, and … did I mention … raking leaves?
