On the first full day of fall...
...it would be pretty easy to be sad, looking for a rake and thinking about how quickly the summer has gone by. Gone are those hot swimming days and long lazy lake weekends.
But as they say, when one door closes, another window opens. There are two ways to look at it. Are you a window half open, or half closed type? For me the onset of fall just means that it's more of an apple-picking and mushroom-eating, wide-open kind of window.
Fall means harvest time. It's easily the loveliest season on Vancouver Island, and Mother Nature is all decked out in her finest splendour. Put down that rake and get out and celebrate with her at one of the many fantastic autumn events happening this week across the islands.
Those leaves will blow away on their own eventually anyway.
