Ladies Who Lunch by the Sea

For the first time since we have been here, we saw these ladies who lunch in a field by the shore path.
On the fence there is a sign that says 'Beware of bull,' which seems to me an excellent piece of advice for everyday life, making it a useful sign even though we have never seen a bull or any sort of animal in the field until today.

The ladies have their back turned to the water--guess they are unimpressed by the view, but I like it. We brought our lunch today and sat at a picnic table between the lunching ladies and this:
Appropriately on this wonderful day when autumn arrives it feels quite seasonal out there. There is a nice brisk breeze and it is not too hot. The water was very choppy and noisy as it crashed into the rocks. The boat tied up on one side of the pier was bobbing up and down and once in a while a wave would crash into the wall hard enough to send spray over the top.

Stopped at a charity shop on the way home because they had a small lamp in the window and we'd been looking for one. Perfect for the longer hours of darkness that are coming. Tonight could be the night that I replace the lightweight summer afghan that is on the bed with the more substantial wool blanket. The nights have gotten chilly lately. Yay!

Welcome, autumn!
