Come September, come autumn August 31, 2010
Ever ponder what gives autumn that extra special appeal, at least for those of us living in the midwest where we experience a definitive four seasons? For me it’s my favorite colors, the bounty of the harvest, the mildness of the weather, and (way back when) the beginning of a new school year. It’s a mixed bag of beginnings and culminations and it’s all wrapped up in the most gloriously colorful package for us to enjoy!
Having grown up amidst the farm fields of Iowa, once the harvest was in and the leaves were down, the palette of the landscape turned from colorful to monochromatic. The same would be true here except for Lake Michigan which injects a wide range of colors into the views from Port Washington Inn. Depending upon the weather, Lake Michigan can be every subtle shade of blue ranging from greys to greens to purples.
Autumn leaves in Port Washington are typically at their peak of color the end of October. Then the winds of November carry them off and we are left with greater views of beautiful Lake Michigan. Come enjoy Autumn near the lake.
Stay longer, savor more, and save more!
