5 Reasons To Travel In Fall

Experience Fall!

Hello friends! Fall is such a glorious time of the year in the Pacific Northwest. I love the definitive change from summer to fall. Although I don't look forward to the shrinking day length, the vivid autumn colors, the warm days and cool nights, and the lengthening shadows bring me great joy.

Today I am sharing photos from favorite fall trips, and the reasons I prefer post-Labor Day excursions.


1. Smaller Crowds. After school resumes, there are many fewer people out and about, especially during the week. Covid notwithstanding, who doesn't love a little extra personal space? The ferries and other means of public transport are less crowded, along with cafes, coffee houses and cute shops.

2. Cooler Temperatures. Need I say more? I love sweaters in the mornings and late afternoons, lighter layers in between.

3. Fall color. The intense hues of fall are lovely. Trees, pumpkins, squash, mums and dahlias decorate the countryside. Day-trips and overnight getaways present an opportunity to surround yourself with autumn splendor.

4. Farmstands. It seems to me that in fall, farmsteads bursting with late harvest produce, spring up everywhere. I love stopping to browse and buy, or just to admire creative displays. On a fall drive, you never know what you might find just around the next bend in the road.

5. Autumn fare. Indulge in a a restaurant experience where fall flavors populate the menu; soups such as pumpkin or acorn squash, a salad topped with hazelnuts, and a decadent dessert such as a pear tart.

Even if you live in the hot climes of Southern California or even the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, there are in-state getaways to more obvious seasonal changes. So, where will you go this fall? Please don't let a pumpkin latte from a neighborhood coffee bar be your only autumn thrill. Pick a place and go. And don't forget to send me a postcard. I'd love to hear from you.

With fondness, ♡ Dana  

Something to look forward to~
