End of Summer Blues

Is what those around you will be thinking to themselves…days of escape, scrumptious feasting on the edge of indigo seas at an exclusive beach club; afternoons of gossip and sunbathing; ripe figs and golden icy Lillet by the glassful. In the evening, late-night suppers on a terrace among the fragrant orange and lemon blossoms, a symphony of cicadas the only background melody. Moonset signals bedtime.

Plan now for a warm winter escape if these aren’t your summer Journey memories.
