September went by in a flash.  And the colorful month of October has officially arrived.  I have said many times how much I love the weather in October on Bainbridge Island.  It is sunny.  It is crisp, but cold and the colorful leaves make a perfect backdrop for many fun activities on the island.  There is no excuse to sit around in October.  Here are 10 things to do this month:

Oh, so glad we went last weekend . . . the weather was perfect pumpkin patch weather.  But, if you have not gone, it looks like there will be some sun out on Sunday afternoon, but bring your rain (mud) boots after our recent damp weather.
