The harbor in autumn

Posted on October 24, 2011


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.
