I refuse to give up on summer just yet!

Ok, I know it is technically fall now...but here in Western New York, we are still having summer weather! So as long as we have nice weather, in my mind, it is still summer! I know that soon enough my cling onto summer will come crashing down, but until then I plan to enjoy every minute possible! That is why I made a stop at one of my favorite places while driving home from Buffalo the other day...Evangola State Park.



It's rather amazing how many years I've lived in this area and never knew this place existed, until I just stumbled upon it about a year ago. This state park offers a playground, tons of picnic and grilling areas, and a sandy beach on Lake Erie with beautiful views!


I walked along the beach, enjoying the sun shining its warm rays down on me. There were geese at the waters edge and others enjoying some sort of snack from in the water. I love Lake Erie because it is so huge, even though it is a lake, it almost feels like the ocean. It makes me miss my days of living in Florida. I love Summer, Spring and Fall...but I do not like New York Winters! I am not trying to think that far ahead and just stay in there here and now, enjoying what we have left of the Summer/Fall. High 70's this entire week...I'll take it!

 
 
What is the weather like where you are from? Do you get to enjoy the fall leaves changing colors? Do you have mild winters? Or lots of snow and freezing temps? I must warn you though, if you make your area sound too good, I must might wind up on your doorstep! ;)

  1. Fall is in full swing where I am in Oregon, but it's still warm enough to rock flip flops some days!

  2. We've been unseasonably warm here in Michigan too. But that hasn't kept me from a pumpkin spice latte :)

  4. Ha! I'm in Wisconsin and our winters are normally pretty brutal. So far, we're having a very mild Fall, so I really hope it continues. A walk on the beach sounds awesome!

  5. I can understand why you refuse to give up on summer. I usually feel the same way, but we have been in a drought for years so Iam hoping the rain comes soon.
