Signs of Fall
Here we are nearly at the end of the first week of October (already)! It has remained unseasonably warm here, and I’m still hiking in shorts and t-shirts!! It’s a little chilly when I first start, but before long I’m grateful for the cool air on my skin.
October is cruise ship season here, and on some days there are three or even four shipped anchored offshore, ferrying their passengers to and from the town dock.
All about town, the vendors are incorporating pumpkins and mums into their displays and the hydrangea are turning from white to dark pink.
And out on the trail, while the leaves are just beginning their transition, other shrubs and plants are letting us know that the summer has ended.
