Make the most of the sunshine.
Run, sail, ride, bask…
Fall is just around the corner.

Who can resist?
(Somewhere in Charles Street, Boston.)
They call this place Punta Fuego, a Spanish name.
“Punta” in English means a tip or point (in this particular case, of land), and “fuego” means fire. “Punta Fuego” is hard to translate, but “Fire Point” is probably a close literal translation.
Historical references cite the Battle of San Diego, which was fought on these waters between Spanish and Dutch forces in 1600, as the origin of the name.
But I’m not a historian, my interpretation is simpler.
The setting sun turns into a ball of fire, and the land and sea and sky become punta fuego.
(In the province of Batangas in the Philippines.)
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you… I could walk through my garden forever.”
