Even though we didn’t get our money’s worth out of Summer, it looks like we are about to be forced to turn the page into Fall. We have been hearing the distant call of flocks of geese on our afternoon walks, and the other day as we were driving along the Fraser on our way to town we saw this small flock enjoying some beach time.
Another sign of Fall that we have been experiencing is the banging caused by the plummeting of spruce cones onto our metal roof. A squirrel bites them off then drops them from the top of the tree, collecting, in preparation for storing them for the winter. Below you can see some of the cones the squirrel has thrown onto our roof.
