Babs has been down to Elk Rapids pondering the year’s mortality. She writes: Most of the boats are now gone from Grace Memorial Harbor in Elk Rapids. So I guess fall is really here. The cool temps are a good indicator too, but this was a recent spectacular sunset.
I do not mind that the seasons wheel, so long as there is a moment in October when every prospect is filled with riches. A good apple harvest. The spot on McLachlan where a person can see both the Bay and the Lake gleaming deepest blue. The sharp scent of fallen leaves. Two bouncy dogs, happy to see a person who has been gone all day.
Addendum: As always, you might wish to click on that photo to see a larger version. It repays the wait. Yes indeed.
