Sunday was a less gloomy day and I am not a fan of Sundays anyway (they seem to go on for friggin' ever) so we decided to take Augie on a road trip. We figured it wouldn't be too busy for a mid-October Sunday so he wouldn't be too crazy.
Wrong. It was busy. Almost like a Sunday in July. He wasn't crazy, tho'. He was a good boy. I remembered that we'd taken him there when we first got him to get him used to seeing people milling about.
|This picture is a good representation of Saugatuck in my book. Funky and arty. Look! Augie's doing the photo-bomb thing; upper right corner. Augie butt shot.|
|Apparently the city fathers/mothers thought to keep these big old trees when the sidewalks went in - thanks!|
|Interesting bark on one of those big old trees.|
|Corners and planters are festooned with fall regalia.|
|Colorful stepping stones in the park of Augie's introduction to Saugatuck.|
|Augie's re-enaction. Looks like he's spotted a bird or a squirrel.|
|A fall basket of goodies tucked in near a front door.|
|An empty parking lot near the empty boat slips is indicative of fall.|
|Makes me just a little sad.|
|But let's not end this blog on a downer, eh?|
I can guarantee you that if you go to Saugatuck in January on a Saturday afternoon, you'll see people hanging out near the fudge shop on the corner, entering/exiting Phil's or buying silly greeting cards in the drugstore. Go - and then scoot over to Douglas because it has a personality all its own.
