Most weekends in October are sweater weather: sunny, but cool and brisk. But these past few days have been in the high 70s - perfect summer weather only without the humidity and crowds! Even on a holiday weekend the traffic doesn't reach the August levels and this weekend was simply gorgeous. I'm not sure how much longer this will last, but I'll take it while its offered! The beaches were busy yesterday and thankfully the surf was calm, because there were no lifeguards on duty. We got lots of yard work done over the weekend and yard sales were also fun in the perfect weather. My only issue was that I had changed out my cotton pants for jeans and could have used something lighter weight to wear. Oh well! Within a few days it will no doubt be cool again and the jeans will be right.
It wasn't an Indian Summer because we haven't yet had the first frost of the season. But it was a real extension of the summer, only in a better way. I don't mind the heat without the humidity. And the sunshine was really, really nice.
