It is still nice and cool in our apartment though, for which I am grateful. We live in a renovated old corn store and have the middle floor of the building. A newly married couple lives upstairs and no one lives downstairs--it is an office which is usually empty. It is technically the address of the community group which worked to acquire the funds to get the building renovated, but there is rarely anyone there. People come and go once in a while to collect mail, have a meeting, or collect tools, but mostly it is empty.
One of the projects they are involved in is keeping the shore path in good shape. They hire people to do whatever maintenance work needs to be done. We have seen them clearing up litter, fixing the footpath, and topping off a small concrete wall. Today they were strimming.
We started off on the shore path this morning with many shades of grey in the sky and very calm waters. Whereas yesterday we stood and listened to the water splashing against the rocks, today it was silent.
It has been interesting to see the plants blooming and then fading away and different plants having their season . The look of the landscape has already changed quite a bit since we first came here to visit in March. There are definitely not as many wildflowers, but there is plenty of colour just the same.
We walked to about the halfway point on the path where there is a small beach and a car park at the start of the lane to the main road.

This is the view from the bench:
We passed this cottage on the way. Bill commented that it reminds him of Miss Marple's cottage--as a huge Miss Marple fan, I like it!
Further along the road we saw these:
