Summer is over here and as most Northerners like to frequently tell themselves…winter is coming. But no, we are not quite there yet! There is still fall…lovely, wonderful fall, and I am still hanging onto my recent memories of this past summer. My kids are finally old enough that mamma can sit in her chaise-lounge and watch while they play in the sand and they are careful enough now that being close to the water doesn’t pose as big of a threat. But as the weather turns, here is one last ode to summer and the finnish archipelago before we start talking about fall and the inevitable arrival of winter.
