its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Summer's Over

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” –William Cullent Bryant
Our last three days on Cayuga Lake were beautiful...the last warm days of Indian Summer. On Tuesday (10/9) Stan had a perfect day to move The Pearl up the lake to her winter home and he enjoyed the time on the water. While he moved the boat, I moved our car, stopping at two of my favorite parks along the lake and doing a little shopping in Aurora. Our relaxing day turn to a busy evening as we started winterizing the boat and packing the car.
On Wednesday morning (10/10) we winterized the water system, the engine and toilets and we were the first boat of the day to be hauled. Once the yard had her blocked we finished closing up the boat and headed south to Pennsylvania to spend a little time with our family. After a wonderful visit with our PA grands we arrived back in Texas just in time for the first cold front of the season.

Up she goes
The Pearl in her winter home. Soon she will be shrink wrapped and her waiting will began...for the warmth of spring to return.
Signs of fall...beautiful sights, but a sign that the boating season in New York is over for the year.
Pumpkin fields close to Bloomsburg...pumpkins as far as the eye can see 
Looks like we got out of Ithaca just in time!
This picture was sent to me this morning from a friend of mine that lives in Ithaca...😬
