Sunny Autumn Day at the very blue Bay Center

Posted by pallix on October 26, 2007

I took my dog, Jake, for a thorough and long walk yesterday, going a little further than we usually walk. It was a crisp, sunny, Autumn day and perfect for getting out of the house after the wind and rain storms of the week before. My mother had sent some of her digital photos of Autumn colors where she lives and I had thought I might take some photos to show off Autumn where I live. Well, I didn’t find much color, found a lot of blue, but some great photos anyway. Sharing a few here.

Our neighbor who was raised in Bay Center, shared with us some of the old photographshe acquired from his parents. This photo shows the owner of our rather well know Bochau’s Chateau house; Mrs. June Bochau taking her little son, Merrill Bocha for a walk – crossing the bridge – in Bay Center.
