For me, this season has always seemed bittersweet, as autumn fades and things buckle down for the winter.
This morning we did a five mile hike from home around a local lake where there were groups of geese forming up on the water. They would talk more and more excitedly, then in a loud flurry take off from the water, low and heading south.
There remained just a few stragglers by the time we rounded the lake, from the several hundred that had hung around for the summer.
We headed home, had a warm breakfast, and began the day.
We hope that you, too are tucking in snugly for the winter.
