Fall finally seems to be settling in. The temperature dropped 15-20 degrees early yesterday morning and the sky was gray and overcast (although it's sunny this morning). It was cold again last night (in the low 40s) and we're expecting it to be even cooler tonight.. I'm not expecting to see many bikinis at the beach nowadays. There's no doubt we've had a warm fall up til now, but there's nothing wrong with more seasonal temperatures. We are partial to island life no matter what the temperature.
