Sweet Sketch Wednesday #223

Welcome Wednesday!!  So glad you have stopped by our Blog!!  We appreciate our faithful Followers so much and LOVE when new friends join in our our FUN!! Each week we bring a new Sketch Challenge to both new friends and old - we LOVE seeing your creations!!  My name Sally and I am your Hostess this week.  I live on the East Coast of the US in Massachusetts.  I recently spent some time on Cape Cod and thought I would share a photo of one of the beautiful end of the Summer Sunsets taken at our Beach Front.
Always sad to see Summer come to a close but with the end of Summer, here in New England comes Fall, my favorite time of year!!
