September Snapshots

September has brought with it a bit of a chill in the mornings and evenings but during the day it can be sunny and warm. Fall is here and I have enjoyed this season thus far. I hope you enjoy this glimpse of the past couple of weeks of some snapshots I have collected during this time.

The fort sits along the Nistru where Moldova borders Ukraine.

For some fun, a few of us jumped on the swings in the children's park in celebration for one of my site-mates birthdays.

I got to catch the sun rising early one morning as I walked to the bus station. Beautiful.

  1. Beautiful pictures Sara. The last one especially. We had a lot of South African wine, wonder if you can get wine from Moldova here in the states! The grape vines in Africa were just starting to grow, it was spring there. Looks like you are enjoying yourself. I always look forward to your post.

    Love, Aunt Laurice Don’t know how this picture got in here, it’s Wyatt’s fire pit I made him for his birthday. Don’t know how to take it off!

    • Thanks Aunt Laurice! I’m not sure if you can purchase wine in the states from Moldova or not. I found this site that indicates where you can apparently buy Moldovan wine… of course PA isn’t one of those places: http://www.moldovanwine.net/

      I bet the wine in South Africa was great – so glad you had a wonderful time!
