the summer we never had

I’ve been talking about our rainy rainy summer a lot, but it seems nature has granted our wishes for a beautiful indian summer. Though the trees are turning golden and the streets are already covered in leaves we have been having more sunshine this week than the whole summer.

Not willing to lose a minute of the last warm days of the year I spent the whole saturday at the river with some girlfriends.

You can’t really swim in the Rhine in our parts (well, you can, but you’re likely to drown because of the strong currents), but we soaked up sunshine and warmth for the colder days to come.

(reading this book)

A perfect day and so needed.
(We also did about five loads of laundry, including bedding and blankets, jumping at the chance to get a load or two dry each day. Just keeping it real here.)

    yes! it seems great! I really love the last photo! I don’t know why, but it reminds me the ladies from the 20’s, when they use to went to spend a day by the river.

    Thank you 🙂 We did need this warm, sunny weekend badly after a summer with hardly any sun. It’s turned cloudy and colder now again.
