Fall in Bay View is all about bounty, from the last daisies of summer in the Bay View Memorial Garden to the autumnal solstice sunsets over Little Traverse Bay and the cornucopia of goodies harvested from area fields and woods. At the end of the day, we wander the quiet streets under a canopy of falling leaves, then climb the stairs and curl up with a good book under grandma’s quilted comforter.  Woodsmoke lingers in the chill air.  Brigadoon will soon disappear for another season.

    • Oh, that all sounds wonderful. I always also loved coming up Memorial Day weekend, to open the cottage. Especially when it was a bit blustery and rainy. So cozy!

      • We did the same thing when we lived in Alma. Our favorite time of year was fall in Bay View: walks in the leaves, freezing alongside the floor furnace playing King Oil and all sorts of no-longer-made board games, making popcorn. Special memories.

  1. What is the fall solstice? I know about the winter solstice and the summer solstice, but I’ve never heard of the fall solstice.

    • The title is intended as a metaphor…fall as a season of turning. It is the time for changing leaves and the time Bay View shuts down until spring.
