Empty Slips, Empty Pool

There's one boat left at the Pier Park Marina, and my guess is, that will be gone soon. The pool is full of rain but empty of shouting kids. The cars and garage roofs are covered with fallen leaves.
Everyone was out raking today.

Raking is what I should be doing...great fall portfolio.

Everyone EXCEPT US was raking--we're waiting a little longer so as not to have to do it so many times.

THANKS! :-D

I totally dislike raking the leaves. We've been having lots of rain here (in place of snow), so the ground is littered with wet, slippery leaves. Great photos :-)

The 1st photo is so beautiful! I've never thought you have to keep your boats inside during winter, but then I checked your weather widget and I realized it's pretty cool out there at this time of the year, so winters must be severe...

they do not rake in seattle, they do not understand the concept of keeping ones yard you know clean looking

Winters are definitely cold here, but not nearly as cold as OHT (my old home town, Syracuse) and that wasn't as cold as Pocatello, Idaho, where I used to live--we had a whole week of 40 below Zero F.

THANKS for all the great comments!

I'm not fond of raking leaves, but I like to mulch the garden with them to protect the bulbs and perennials.
