Last weekend at this time we were being smacked around by Irene. But, as I reported in my last post, we bid her good riddance with a funeral party!
Since she left town, the skies have been blue and the weather beautiful!
I took this shot from our beach.
My 4 gkids enjoying their last weekend before school begins Tuesday. I will miss having them out here at the beach. I don't see them that often once school begins and they go back to their home.
After a day of fun in the water, we attend Mass on the lawn.
Our very dear friend, just celebrated his anniversary of 50 years as a priest.
He has been there for us in the best of times and the worst, from the joy of Baptisms and weddings to the sorrow of funerals. He is truly a wonderful person.
During his vacation, he says Mass under the blue skies with the Bay breeze at his back.
The setting is very conducive to remembering to thank God for our blessings!
Here the "congregation" waits for Mass to start.
I will miss the days at the beach with the kids...
But come Tuesday, I will sit on the front porch with my coffee and newspaper, and be very happy I am retired and don't have to leave here during September. It is one of the most beautiful months in Southampton.
