Food truck fare

23 10 2014

The little town close to where I’m staying has a taco food truck that opens on the side of the highway a few days a week. Today we tried it. I had the Texas BBQ sandwich and it was GOOD! Nice and spicy with the jalapeno, and heaps of meat (I assume it was brisket – whatever… It tasted great!).

I saw a deer!

23 10 2014

There are a lot of deer around here,  but after keeping an eye out for them for the past 5 days,  I didn’t think I’d see one. However, late this afternoon my cousin spotted one from the living room window and I tried to get some photos. He was well camouflaged (they said he was a little 4-point buck),  so this is the best photo I got from the window about 20 yards away.

Next morning, four does wandered through the backyard!

Now that’s a taco salad!

Look at the size of that taco salad! No,  she couldn’t eat more than half of it…

How quick the Fall colours fade

23 10 2014

I’ve been in Michigan less than a week and already the Fall colours are fading fast. As an example,  the tree on the left in the first photo was captured about 3 days ago. The bottom photo shows that same tree this morning.  Yes the time of day and cloud cover and photo angle were different,  but the reality is that winter is coming.

More Fall foliage

Some more photos of the magnificent Fall foliage in Michigan this time of year,  though it’s fading fast just in the few days I’ve been here.

Random Fall things

23 10 2014

When I walked to the road to get this morning’s paper,  I heard a sound I hadn’t heard in a very long time… Canadian Geese honking as they head south for winter.

And as I walked to the road,  I took some photos of the corn that’s ready to harvest. Some ears are still intact,  but many on the stalks close to the road have been nibbled on by the deer.

Finally, the outside temperature yesterday suited me just fine!
