Then inside pulled out my Dickens Village to dress mantel. for Halloween.
Small touches but since I had planned a vacation for a week needed to get this done. I like to leave the Village out until March changing items for Christmas as well.
So the first week of October I climbed aboard a tour bus ..heading to Sault Ste Marie.
On to Agawa Canyon Train to take in the gorgeous Autumn colours of northern Ontario.

It was cloudy for part of the day and then the sun came out the colours were dazzling.
Hydrofoil to Mackinac Island
