Labor Day is considered the traditional beginning of fall. But that was not the case this year at Maples at the Sonatas, where we enjoyed three-plus weeks of bonus summer.
There were still several sizzling hot days for swimming. Our walking group, known for getting outside in challenging weather, took their exercise in the pool a few days. Don’t they look nice and cool here?
And they can spell too. A-A-R-P…
The weather has turned a bit cooler now, but the pool was still the place to be this weekend. On Saturday, we celebrated the annual Pooch Plunge. It was a big hit with dogs and humans alike, and provided many photo ops.
And a special thanks to Cathie, who let me share this brief video of some of our dogs in action.
Then, last night, it was back to the pool for viewing the lunar eclipse. A dozen or so of us shared some conversation and laughter as we kept our fingers crossed that the clouds would not cover the moon.
We all felt like the amateur photographers that we are as we tried to take photos with our phones. Here is Shirley, giving it a shot.
And here are two of Shirley’s pictures.
It’s been a wonderful summer in our community. But this week the pool will close for the season. Thanks to our hard-working pool committee for providing the setting for so many fond memories.
