Bye to Beaver Island 2020

After several days of rain, our last day on the island was perfect for our flight off, like the island was trying to show me its best autumn self. It's hard to believe 4 months there passed so quickly. I was so fortunate to have that bubble and hope it will sustain me through the winter ahead. In the process of unpacking and reorganizing and doing things like getting much needed flu shots and other errands on Monday. Terrifying to think of going out in the city, but will be prepared with face mask throughout, and a shield if needed. Numbers here are higher than the worst of last spring, as we're seeing throughout the country. Will hopefully be back to commenting later in the week.
Thank you for putting my autumn carpet photo on TT this week! Much appreciated!
Beautiful! Good luck unpacking and settling back into city life. Stay safe!

Beautiful capture. What a lovely 4 month reprieve from the pandemic and other stresses.
October 26th, 2020  
Lovely autumn trees
October 26th, 2020  
Exquisite dressed for Autumn from the skies. I would want to stay there until the Pandemic is over! All the best as you return to the City. Cases are shooting up in my area again and it does make you nervous when you go out. I'm sure you'll be fine though, because you are careful. Sending lots of love your way, dear one.

wow what a zinger of a view. stay safe taffy and hope the winter is kind to you :)

It doesn't seem like you have been there for 4 months. Well will look forward to cityscapes again. It is sort of your ying yang posting.
October 26th, 2020  
Beautiful, You are going to miss scenes like this. Stay safe back in Chicago. It will probably take some getting used to being back in the city
October 26th, 2020  
Gee that four months went quickly, enjoy being back in Chicago
October 26th, 2020  
Beautiful, but sad to go back to town. Take care!
October 26th, 2020

October 26th, 2020  
Huge fave here!

Wonderful view! A great way to see all those colors.
October 26th, 2020  
This us just a amazing!! How did you get the pilot to give you that view of the island?? :- )
October 26th, 2020  
@thewatersphotos We were lucky to have a good day. Flights are in little planes -- this one was a 6-seater -- so we fly fairly low, and always the same path. I had my phone out and was ready for when we passed over Lake Geneserath (aka Lake G) and had the shoreline in sight for Lake Michigan.
October 26th, 2020  
@taffy Fabulous! Can't wait to see the photos from Chicago! Praying for your safety there!!
October 26th, 2020  
Great view - fav

Outstanding aerial view...great composition
October 26th, 2020  
I can't believe it was 4 months it seems you only got there last week.
October 26th, 2020  
Beautiful view, great autumn colours and reflection in the lake
October 26th, 2020  
I changed planes in Chicago on my way home from Colorado Springs. You would have gotten a great cloud photo.
October 26th, 2020  
A beautiful scene and capture.Fav.😊
October 26th, 2020  
Scary for you coming into the city...you must have felt quite protected over the last four months. Beetle about doing your jobs quickly & get home quick.
This is such a stunning place, you wouldn’t want to leave! Fave again.
October 26th, 2020  
Fabulous capture.
October 26th, 2020  
how lovely to see your island from an aerial shot, and with such colour abounding. I hope you adjust back to city life - with all its peculiarities of the times - without too much difficulty.
October 26th, 2020  
Wonderful shot
October 26th, 2020  
A lovely overview of the island.
October 27th, 2020  
Nice aerial photo
October 27th, 2020  
Awesome aerial capture. Love all of the colors. Hope things go well back at home.
October 27th, 2020  
Time flies when yu're having fun, doesn't it! That is such a delightful change from Chicago - both have their good points, but think I'd take the Island. Stay safe back in the big city - hear you're hitting peaks again.
October 27th, 2020  
What a beautiful farewell sight. I hope things are manageable when you hit the city again and that you stay safe. :)
October 27th, 2020

Such a beautiful view! Hoping your transition to urban living is relatively painless, although I’m sure you’ll miss this island.
October 30th, 2020  
Lovely shot, VML the colour of the trees. And what a great view too.

What a beautiful capture of fall and your island. Needs to be printed and hung.
