It is fall...

although the weather belies this fact.
    the calendar says so.  And the activity in Port Susan does as well.
The boats, summer's banner here, are gone, pulled from the waters before the winter storms come
    and bundled off to dry, safe storage until next summer.
In their place is a new armada of water craft.  Now that the water sports for humans are ended
the flocks of fall/winter fowl have arrived to moor here for a time: widgeons, loons, mallards
    geese, golden eyes.
Just as the neighborhood boaters know just the right time to "put in" for the season, so too the
    migrating floaters.
