Autumn weekend – Waterfowl, Grand Prix

So much has been going on lately, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. I’m not one to sustain “busyness” very well, but I recall that life speeds up just before the big sleep of winter, especially in our rural area, so I’m going with it. During the past weekend, there was so much going on – the 41st annual Waterfowl Festival, the Inaugural Grand Prix race in St. Michaels, the soybean harvest, boats, warm weather – whoa. Here are some images from the past week, starting with the most beautiful japanese maple I’ve ever seen – on a back alley, in Easton:

The 41st annual Waterfowl Festival was held in Easton and was a terrific success. Warm weather and big crowd marked the weekend as one of the most successful in recent years. What a difference good weather makes!

The Inaugural Grand Prix in St. Michaels raised $5000 for the American Diabetes Foundation, and it was a wild ride, all day long. Ten participating teams from local businesses sold food and beer, and raced decorated golf carts around a track at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. You can read all about it here – on the Talbot Spy –

We took a quick trip to Baltimore to see a dear friend from St. Louis – love that Bay Bridge!

I’ve got to admit, even though I fuss a lot about fall and winter – it’s a beautiful time of year on the Chesapeake Bay.

  1. I think Japanese maples have to be one of the most beautiful trees.
