The days are long and hot and dry, and summer stretches on into October.
We go for a drive on the country roads of rural Wyoming, trying to find a bit of cool.
What do you do as the last days of summer vacation come to a close? Find a field of corn and flowers?
Or find a backyard and a tire swing and a sunset and spin and spin until you can’t even stand anymore?
… what is there to say when…
… after a day that has managed to disappoint you, even though you’re on vacation…
… and you wander away from your campsite, fighting tears of frustration…
… and you hit the edge of a lake and look up
… and all you see is this…
… and it just leaves you breathless?
Watching the sun set while nursing sunburns, sore feet and mai tais at Huggo’s on the Beach, the only place to be if you HAVE to brave the tourist crowds and beach bars of Kailua-Kona.
Goodbye, Hawaii. It’s been real.
This is a story of a table on the beach, a table at Zamas.
There was a bottle of wine between us…
… and a candle.
And we looked out on to the beach, an ebb and a flow.
This is a story of four feet in the sand, little toes making little divots, leaving little tracks.
And we sat and we laughed and we ate…
… and we watched the sun go down on our last night in Tulum.
