Photo du jour: Goodbye August...

Now that August - and the August break - is ending (sniff, sob), summer already feels further away...

{Last one for the August Break: Watching surfers wipe out, Sandy Beach, Hawaii.}

I know what you mean, Oslo is getting colder and colder by the day and I even had to dig out my jacket!

Ah well, I love autumn as well but the Norwegian winter can be a bit rough, good thing it's still a few months away :)

HI Signe - it's amazing how quickly summer went by! I look forward to autumn too, though I am also not a big fan of long winters.

(But I shouldn't complain about London or US winters to a Norweigian! ;))

Hi Miss Giny - I'm also so sad about August and August Break ending! Too fast :) Thanks so much for your comment - I'm happy to have discovered your photos and your lovely blog!

Hi Diana - boohoo, it went by too fast, didn't it? I'll also miss that summer sun. At least the next season is Autumn (not winter :)) Have a lovely day!

Hi Kirsty - hahaa, good old Londontown! :) Yeah, I'm happy to miss London weather this time of year!

Hi Lee - hooray! You guys get your warm weather now :) I hope you enjoy and look forward to more of your lovely photo posts!

It's not over here yet, at least for the next few days with temps in the low-mid 90s. No complaints though, as I know what's coming!!! This is a lovely shot Jude!

Stacey said...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I can't believe summer went by so fast, definitely a bummer.

Melissa Blake said...

Here's to the wonders of fall! xoxo

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is sad about summer ending! But in Hawaii the winters must be pretty mild, no? (do they have winters there at all???)

AB HOME Interiors said...

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous! I want to be THERE!!!!

Gorgeous!

It can't be getting colder in Hawaii....can it?

It is a bit cooler today in southern Italy, but I think it's just a break from the heat.

Jude said...

Hi Lisa - hahaa, true, good reminder! Gosh, I'm definitely not looking forward to winter. Thanks so much about photo - I'm going to miss August Break. Hope to keep seeing your lovely photos on your blog or Flickr!

Hi Alternative Wife - Oh, sigh sigh, it does make a bit sad - the summer went by so fast!

Hi LenoreNeverMore - heehee, true! true! I'll focus on Thanksgiving and Xmas being "just" weeks away instead! :) (Thanks re: photo!)

Hi Stacey - gosh, I'm missing it already :) It really flew by this year! (I *love* ocean blues, Wouldn't mind being in the blue right now ;))

Hi Krysten - I can't believe it too! This year specially, it was like a blink of the eye!

Hi Melissa - here here! thankfully, fall is a gorgeous time of year :)

Hi Cafe Bellini - yeah, this summer went by too quick! Haha, and you're absolutely right - we don't get winters in Hawaii! The oceans cool a bit, and it rains more, maybe...(the weakest excuse for "winter" weather :))

Hi Amanda - I do love ocean blues! And hoped this visual might do the trick ;)

Jude said...

Hi Shopgirl - that's true, Hawaii just doesn't get very cold - no winters! :)

I think the worst we get is a bit of rain, some cooler water temps for swimming - but bearable! Hmm...I don't know why I don't spend winters there (I always spend winter in the dark, cold places ;)

Elle Sees said...

ooh i'm ready for fall. it's too dang hot in atlanta.

Melissa said...

I agree! I'll miss the fun of summer, but I'm getting pumped for the best season of them all -- autumn.

Regan said...

Lovely photo :)

Style, She Wrote said...

Beautiful. I'm missing summer already.

MarchMusings said...

Since we're on the other side of the world, it's spring here and luckily it's a nice, sunny day today!

Nicole said...

Love that photo! Sadly, yes, it is good-bye to August! BUT, it is hello to delicious pumpkin lattes, beautiful leaves, and cute coats!

Ashley said...

I love how there are different colors of the ocean in the pic.

Great shot.

I had fun viewing August Break. Hope it keeps rolling.

Ashley said...

I love this time of the year.

Rowena said...

Summer is over when I start wearing socks with my rubber slippers (boy would the locals back home laugh at me). That happened 2 nights ago. Oh well...

Jude said...

Hi Elle - so agree, fall is lovely!

Hi Melissa - hooray to fall! I'm looking forward too :)

Thanks Regan! :)

Hi Style, She Wrote - :) I definitely am too!

Hi March Musings - now I'm envying you guys down under! :)

Hi Nicole - those are lovely fall things...enough to make up for end of summer!

Hi Ashley - aw, thanks so much! I'm going to miss August Break, but I'd love to sometimes do the August Break Continued - look forward to your photos there :)

Hi Rowena - oh gosh, that is too hilarious. I started doing that my first London winter - I've been found out! :)
