In the summer, I took you for a walk around Long Point, so today I thought I'd take you along a similar walk on a misty Fall morning.
Most of the boats have been taken off the lake now, ready for the ice to come,
Yesterday Bruce and the girls saw deer here as they walked to the bus, but there were none today as I rustled through the leaves.
In some places the leaves have all but gone.
And so I head back to the house, which we have decorated for the fall.
I feed the birds and the chipmunks.
|A new resident in our garden - the American robin|
|We thought the blue jays were so pretty when we arrived, but locals shook their heads and said they were bullies and thieves. Now we tend to agree - they steal the chipmunks' food and terrorise the other birds|
|There are many kinds of sparrows here - this is a white crowned sparrow.|
And then settle down with my books for the day.
