Guess what... It's almost fall! :)

If you've been outside much lately, I'm sure you've noticed the air has been a lot cooler. But it's not just the air that has been changing... the days have been growing much shorter as well, and the nights seem way longer. Our air conditioners haven't been running nearly as much at the house either. Without a doubt, fall is in the air! In fact, in a few more days it will officially be fall... Every year about this time I start getting excited!

Many of us throughout Central PA have endured some tough times the past couple weeks due to wet weather and some major flooding. There really hasn't been much to get excited about. Still, with fall soon upon us, hopefully we will be able to focus more on the good times and good weather that is still ahead of us this coming season.

There is so much for an outdoors-man or woman to do in fall... And we live in the perfect region to make the decisions even harder. "Let's see... Should I go fishing or hunting? Well, the steelhead are starting to run up in Erie, but the bucks are starting to make scrapes up on the ridge." Or, "I could make a run down to New Jersey and do some striper fishing, but then I'd probably miss a weekend of great bass angling at home!" In fall, the choices are many... But we truly are blessed to be able to make these "tough" choices! :)

I can tell you that Marianne and I have a plan for getting our fall started out right. Next week we will be headed to Martha's Vineyard for a nice, week-long trip with my Mom and Dad. The Vineyard is one of my favorite places on this earth, and if you have ever been lucky enough to spend much time there, I am sure it is one of your favorite places as well. I imagine that heaven is not all that unlike Martha's Vineyard.

I know, I seriously cannot wait for this trip! We have a lot of fun stuff planned--mostly involving fishing, but also a good bit of eating too, ha ha! Hopefully I will be able to keep all of you informed about our trip as it is going on... So stay tuned! But for now, here are a few pics that bring back some great memories from previous trips to the Vineyard through the years. :)
