Transitioning from summer to fall

The cooler waters of the Gulf of Mexico signify the arrival of fall for me.

Summer may officially be over, but for me it lingers until the Gulf of Mexico gets too chilly for swimming. A beach person, I center my weekend activities on the casual life of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

My Pass Christian house, Pass Time, reflects a simple lifestyle, perfect for reading, beach walking and boat trips to the barrier islands of Ship, Cat and Chandeleur. Chasing dolphins never gets old.

With fall’s arrival, it’s time to shift gears and embrace the changes that it brings. Fairs and festivals will replace island excursions – at least until the Gulf warms up next spring.
