10 Signs that Summer's Ending

It was bound to happen! We've had a stretch of weather that makes you mourn the end of summer, but I'm taking careful notes and here's what I've noticed:
  1. School started.
  2. Restaurants are closing up.
  3. The Kayak Center is closed.
  4. The ferry schedule is slowing down.
  5. The boats are leaving the seasonal pay-to-park lot.
  6. It's dark when we get up.
  7. We're getting closer and closer to Oct. 1 when the winter tunnel hours go into effect.
  8. The last cruise ship was here this past weekend.
  9. The wind blows from a winterly direction...and it's getting chilly at night!
  10. The calendar says so.
So I guess it must be true!
