My sentiments exactly!

EG Wow said...

Ha! Summer isn't my favourite season for that reason -- it's too darn HOT! :)

Dawn Elliott said...

Yes! It's been way too hot here, as well, with too few monsoon rains this year. Our haikus both speak of Autumn this week...I love summer, yet long for the coolness to come. Love the 1911 bath house!!!

Nanka said...

Quaint places from the past, anything to keep cool!!
Luckily it is pouring here (monsoon time) and we don't have to go far to wade in water :)

I didn't realize that park dates from the early 1900's, Snap. Keep cool.

I can see the direction of your thoughts with these cards. :) So I take it you're all still too hot? Ours has been a reasonable but not very warm summer. I wouldn't mind borrowing some heat. :)

Technically, summer has a few more weeks to run--and may it run fast!

Wow! Exactly one hundred years ago (Breakers)! They seem to have made an art out of celebrating summer... Ahhh, you're rigt: the end of hot hot summer is flying by!

Where did this summer go? How did it get to be August 12th? I think summer is somewhere in the water in either of those great postcards!

both of your postcards stir in me a great longing for water. growing up in san diego our summers, as were all seasons,were all wrapped up in the ocean. i am so enjoying your pairing of vintage postcards with an accompanying haiku.
so glad you are here!

It hasn't been hot in dear old England, I havn't put the fan on yet this year. I havn't had to water the garden either as it has rained and rained and rained.

I am all in for a group visit to the wading pool.

I am sorry to be so late, Snap. I always love your postcards. You bring such a sense of the sweet past and good cultural memories with these pictures. Lovely haiku.
