Goodbye Summer: Hello Fall

I had two back-to-back outings last week as seen here in the photos. Made it to Oceanside Harbor to experience a cool sea breeze, drink in the water sites (Sea Trek, local surfer) and embrace many warm memories of our grandson playing in the sand... Goodbye Summer. What a wonderful season of sizzling temperatures and fun in the sun moments with family!

At the San Diego Safari Park there is a special Botanical Cactus Trail. The orange blooms and leaves reminded me of a new season approaching in all its orange splendor. It's a different contrast from Poplars, Liquid Amber trees and such varieties. I suspect the grouped Aloe Vera were burned by too much sun. I found the middle photo to be somewhat "corky" and funny. Silly blooms, yet marvelous creations found in nature. Hello Fall!

Here's my photo edit with lightning trails effect!
