One of the things I most associate with November is what I think of as sunsetting with son, Harry, at the seaside. It’s something we’ve been doing together since he was a toddler.
When he was five or six, I had no concept whatever of a time when he would be twenty and driving me from beach to beach to make the very most of day’s end.
We had a glorious few hours this evening soaking in the delicious colours as they unfolded. We played around taking photographs and here’s a glimpse of a couple we took:
Shared time is a curious thing and I wonder to what extent either H or I will remember the intensity of this evening in years to come.

I think you two will have something to reminisce in the years to come..the time you spent together, the talks, the sunsets, the funny moments. They are embedded in your minds and will resurface time to time. I love to take pictures of sunrise and sunsets and they’re never the same.
I hope you’re right, Joni. You have quite a habit of it so fingers crossed for this time too!
I think that even if there aren’t distinct memories about particular days there will be the shared feeling of experiences…on the beach…and elsewhere…the love filters all:):)
Olga, that notion of love filtering all is special!
It is the many memories I can vividly recall with my own parents and siblings which continue to influence what I enjoy with my own children. What lovely photos and memories you’ve shared here.
Tric, I agree wholeheartedly with your point about the cycle of life.
What a lovely tradition to maintain with your son! I wish I could think of something like that that we have done sigh. Beautiful!
Luanne, stop that sighing immediately and think a bit harder!!!
So lovely and blissful. Beautiful photo’s and I’m sure it was treasured moments.

Hi Val, my pleasure entirely!
Beautiful evening, Jean!
Dana, absolutely magical and I’m so glad we had it as it’s all damp and dreary here today but the golden glow from yesterday remains.
These glorious moments will last with you forever. ❤
