Fall begins on the Island...

September, 2016:  The sure sign that the season is changing is in the wildlife, particularly in the moose.  Suddenly, we have been spotting a lot more moose in the area, and they are getting unpredictable!  The rut has begun.  There have been a bull, cow and calf all hanging out in Rock Harbor.  They have been hanging around our house for days, sometimes RIGHT outside the door!  I've started looking both ways before I open the door to go outside, because more than once, I've been startled by them right outside the door. 

Susanna and Jasper worked their way back to town in the middle of the month, while I stayed on to help close down Rock Harbor.  At the end of the month, I returned to the mainland briefly for a visit and then returned to the island to close everything out throughout October. 

Here are some of the highlights from the month...
