The true end of summer for me is when we turn the clocks back and the sun sets as early as 4:30 in the afternoon. I read an interesting article in the Boston Globe proposing that the New England States adopt Atlantic Standard Time matching the Canadian Maritime Provinces. The change would mean not having to adjust our clocks between November and March. Luckily I have taken lots of reference photos so my painting can happily continue during the dark days ahead.
The boats are coming out of the water, the mooring balls will be replaced by winter sticks.
