September already? The summer has passed in a flash, leaving me feeling a bit wistful. I spent not a single lazy afternoon at the beach! Fortunately, there should still be many warm, sunny days ahead and our beaches are just lovely, and quiet, at this time of year.
Autumn is usually beautiful in the Northwest, and like many beach communities, Whidbey Island seems to breathe a sign of relief as the pace slows and quiets. Mornings can be a bit misty and softly veiled in fog which clears to warm, sun-drenched afternoons. This is my favorite time of year without a doubt, but then, I am a September baby!
September is also the month in which we celebrate Island Tea Company’s anniversary. We have a full week of sales and special events coming up, including our annual MadHatters’ Tea. I’ll share more information on all of this in a day or so. Until then, enjoy your Labor Day week-end!
