We headed Up North this weekend.
The weather is cooler. The nights are getting longer. Leaves are starting to turn color and fall.
The change in season.
Time to take out the docks, and settle the boat for the winter.
Brian came up to help us. (It's actually a closer drive for him, from campus, than for us, from home.)
(Jenny was thilled to see him!)
And . . . just. . .
like. . .
that. . .
the docks were out. And the boat was up in the driveway.
Until next spring.*
Jenny was a bit befuddled about the lack of a dock.
But she discovered . . . that you don't need a dock. . .
to jump in and retrieve a floatation cushion!
And we were reminded. . .
that cool temperatures and an early sunset make for a perfect evening around the campfire.
Change is in the air.
* We'll keep heading up to the cottage. . . until we close it down completely in early November.
