Gazebo in the morning

A visit to the gazebo.

The perfect way to start out the long holiday weekend.

A cup of steaming, dark roast in one hand.

A book in the other.

I’ll catch the morning breeze.

The calm.

Before boats dot the landscape.

Before a late summer sun nudges up temps.

For one last time.

I’ll briefly rest my eyes.

Savoring memories of a summer coming to a close.

Pleasant memories they are.
