Michigan Fall at Caseville Harbor – A Late Season

The Fall in Michigan seems incredibly short this year. Boats are still in the water as November rolls in. Will we the last one out of the water? It kind of sad an a bit lonely to be one of the last ones out of your slip in the Fall in Caseville harbor. Last year we were one of the diehards with ice beginning to form a weekend or two after we got our sailboat out and winterized for the season water. This year with the schedule tight we decided to get on the hard at the end of September. It was tough. It symbolically ended the opportunity to get out on Saginaw Bay and we knew that the summer was really over.

Here is Caseville Harbor the last weekend in September 2014. Fall in Michigan is the most under-appreciated and utilized times of the year. School is back in session. With Labor Day passes folks have a new mindset. Yet the days are typically warm well into mid-October and the low sun casts long shadows even in mid-day. Everyone looks for the current fall colors in Michigan. Yet the best color in the Thumb typically starts in mid-October.

These images are from five years ago. The old fish house from the early 1900s, that used to sit on the canal to unload fish from the Bay Port Fish Company when the lake was low has been torn down.

    Always a sad day when the boat comes out of the water! My family took theirs out last weekend too. It always reminds me that winter is around the corner. Beautiful pics!

    Always tough to put the boat away for the winter.
