Identical, Illustration Friday

Well here it is, already several days past the Labor Day holiday weekend and the unofficial beginning of fall, ha ha ha! I know I should be getting all giddy about the autumn holidays and Christmas looming, but for those of us who live in a warmer climates (and ask any kid who's just returned to a new school year)- these days are still practically identical to some of the best of summer's. I just know there are a few more beach days, yet.
Along the strand just north of the Oceanside pier, two rows of tiny beach cottages face the Pacific Ocean. Built in the late 1920's and named "Roberts Cottages" for their early owners, Harry and Virginia Roberts, they've undoubtedly witnessed the passing of many seasons and the ebb and flow of both the tides and tourists who vacation at the shore.
Hello, September! I see those leaves starting to change to golden green! A few more weeks' worth of summer, that's all I ask...


  1. I would love to have a day at one of those beach huts Michele, what fun! We are having a late blast of summer here which is very welcome after the dire summer we endured. It should be 28c by Sunday...wahoo! Enjoy September, the mornings do have that little autumn nip in them and yes the leaves are beginning to turn. Take care,

  2. Hi Michelle, well, I live on the other side of the world, the down side, depending on how you see. and here, September is sprouting leaves, flowers grow and warm days :)))
    I like your picture!
    Thanks for your comment, and good next weekend!

  3. Oh, I want to stay in one of those cute cottages and I love the beach even more in the fall. I hope you get a few more weeks to enjoy it Michele.

  4. You're making me long for a trip to the beach. I love that you pciked these retro cottages for you subject.

  5. Heisann!

    Hope, but I'm not sure, Autumn will be not so busy! Hope to spend more time at Lia in Telemark...
    Nice drawing, Michele ;:OD)

  6. Hi Michelle, Love your pink identical houses. They look warm and inviting. Yes the leaves are turning here in New England, and are beautiful, but soon it will be very cold and I'll wish I was in one of those homes.

  7. Hey MIchelle!!!! How are you Darling??? I love your houses. They make me want to take a nice needed vacation. Very well done. Hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Sending you hugs from Charlotte. Happy Holidays to you!
