HEADING INTO AUTUMN
September flew by and it's hard to believe it is October. The days are warm and the evenings a bit chilly. We have had a few foggy mornings that add to the feeling of Fall. I hear the ferry boat horn coming into the harbor some mornings and love the sounds of the island.

Today I stopped by Suyematsu Farm and brought my camera and left with some pumpkins. It's our family tradition each season to pick our pumpkins for pie and carving at Suyematsu Farm. 

There are many October activities to choose from now. There is no excuse to huddle inside! In the Northwest this Fall, it is time to get out and enjoy the colors of Autumn.
