Today tourist season is officially over! The residents of our beautiful state can finally get back to the peace and quiet we love so much now that the vacationers have gone home. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy seeing the summer residents, and I’m friends with many of them. But it is very nice to be able to sit out on the back deck and watch the pond with absolutely no jet skis or motor boats anywhere in sight! I can now listen to the loons and watch the calm reflections of the trees by the shore. One of my favorite times of year.
