I have heard people talk about taking a driving vacation through the East Coast States and the beautiful colors of the trees in Vermont and Maine in the Fall. If you are like my wife and myself, it is on our Bucket List but as of yet we have not had the time or more truthfully, made the time, to enjoy the trip. Life is a choice, I believe.
Anyway whatever the case with you, if you have not been there, you are in luck. We were out for a drive last weekend and I was amazed that in some areas you can see the a hint of the beginning of the changing of the leaves. It seems early to me but it is the first of October and as in past years when they start to change, it will seem like overnight and WOW they will be glowing with those rich Fall colors.
Kent Country in particular has many wooded areas that can give us a showcase of fall colors if we just stop to enjoy the views. Rondeau Provincial Park is an area that my wife used to take her grandmother to before she passed. She was 93 years old when she died and used to enjoy nature so much, the Spring flowers, the bright Summer colors and the rich varying shades of Fall colors, the simple things in life!
The trees really have not changed into their Fall Spectrum of colors as of yet. It is a little early for the trees because of our unseasonable warm fall. But the colors will come, so watch the trees around the city and then take a drive. If you are out to enjoy the sites, stop at one of the many Kent Country orchards and pick up some apples or fall vegetables, purchase a fresh baked pumpkin or apple pie or stop at Parks Blueberry Farm along #2 Hwy and enjoy a cup of coffee and a piece of their excellent home made Blueberry Pie.
Fall is also Halloween time. We do not have many children ring our doorbell but we enjoy seeing our Grandchildren all dressed up in their costumes. The little ones are especially fun to see, sometimes enjoying their first experience at getting dressed up as their favorite Movie or Fairy Tale character. If you do not like your children to go door to door on Halloween night watch for advertisements for Halloween events from various churches or organizations. Before Covid, there were often such events taking place in and around Chatham-Kent.
Enjoy Kent Country and all it has to offer now in this colorful Fall Season and in all the seasons.
