Ostia – End of Summer

2020 has been a very odd year and a very odd summer.

It’s been a sabbatical year for lots of people… for me it has been one of the busiest ever, always against the trend!

Today I propose you some pictures that make me think to the end of summer.

An inevitable period that is sad for many people.

Colours change and fade away…

The wind rises, the temperatures fall and the sea is rough…

I had a lot of fun in my life but I have always this feeling that I could have had more.

Let’s be clear, it’s never enough!

I could live a whole life in Summertime but life is not like that and we need all the seasons of the year and all the seasons of life.

I remember that I hated this period when I was young, holidays were over and I had to come back to school, leaving the friends of a summer that I would have never seen again. But then we grow up, life changes and this period is not that bad after all. Embrace all the changes of your life πŸ’ͺ

  1. People! πŸ˜‰ I love all the photos but the last one especially. Yes, this was always an incredibly sad time for me but now it’s opposite. I cannot wait for the moment when everybody else leaves and our car is alone in our huge parking lot again. Oh, the statue is magnificent too.

    1. We are getting old my dear πŸ˜‚πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ today I went to the beach and I was completely wet (of rain, not the sea!), I was the only one and I was so happy and grateful πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  2. Lovely words and photos to echo your emotions and feelings at the conclusion of summer. It is always a tinge of sadness when good things come to an end, Flavia. Hoping that next summer will be back to normal for everyone.
    An unusual year it has been.

    1. You can say it loud Amanda, it couldn’t have been stranger than this but hopefully we are approaching the end of the pandemic as well. The numbers are still scaring but the vax should be almost ready by now, we only have to resist a little longer πŸ’ͺ

  3. Your photos beautifully impart the feeling of the end of summer. I love the monochrome look of the Poseidon statue followed by the splash of colour of beach umbrellas. I explored more this summer (in my home province) than I ever have. With the weather changing, this will come to an end soon but I’m grateful for what I saw and did.

    1. Same thing here Caroline. I have never spent so many months in a row in Italy. But we always have something to discover, to admire, to do πŸ€—πŸ˜‰
