The leaves are starting to turn and our prices have dropped to our fall rates. We have had a lot of returning customers that wait until the kids are back in school and the air turns crisp to come visit. This time of year we have more time to chat too, and it’s great to catch up on the year’s events.
Many of the birds that spent the summer on Quahog Bay have started their migration south. We still have migrating Osprey, Blue Herons and Kingfishers traveling through. They stop to fish in the bay. This is always the time of year that I see the most Kingfishers.
The lobstermen too are moving their gear down the bay into deeper water. There are a lot less buoys in the bay. Its too bad that as the days get shorter and the lobstermen need to spend more time traveling to their gear. Many are leaving in the dark and soon will be returning in the dark too.
Autumn is a spectacular time in Maine. The apples are ready and the lobsters are delicious. The trees are changing and the flowers are being replaced with frost hardy mums. There are less people on the road and more openings at the Inn. Hopefully we will see you soon!
