Autumn is here, not only on the calendar since we're now into October, but also in the air. You can feel it as well as see it! The days of spending hours at the beach soaking up the sun are fast dwindling away. The life guards have packed up their stuff since Labour Day not to return until the start of the busy season next year. It was real nice for the last few days with warm temperatures and bright blue, sunny skies but tomorrow the overcast skies and rain return. However, we'll get more and more of those rainy days as we get later into the season. We can only relish those days of sitting half naked somewhere taking in the sun. It all comes with the changing of the seasons, so enjoy each one for what each has to offer. I think I'll talk Brad into strapping on a pair of skis so we can both go skiing on Hollyburn Mountain this winter. There's an area for cross-country skiing along with the alpine (downhill) skiing areas. I've done cross-country and love the exercise it offers plus taking in the fresh air and sunshine at the same time (when its sunny during the winter). Since I don't work on weekends, they're free for all sorts of fun activities! Keep in mind, when its rainy in the valley, its snowing in the mountains. Something to look forward too!!! - Volker
