Sad as it is, summer is quickly fading to fall. Back to school lists have arrived in mailboxes, a slight nip is in the air, and the sense of impending reality is starting to hit. Soon the sun-soaked days spent on the beaches will give way to grabbing a coffee before work, the long hours spent enjoying the warm air scented by local flora will give way to raking leaves and inhaling the scent of fall, and the days packed full of wonderful activities will give way to normalcy.
But fall is not here yet, so while summer is still hanging around, be sure to get in all the fun you can!Biking along the Cape Cod Canal near the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area. Photo by Maggie Kulbokas.
