Fall is a season of change, as we go into a new rhythm of life with cooler temperatures and shorter days. During September and into October we also experience what is known as king tides when high tides coincide with the days around the Fall or Autumnal Equinox. As with all change, we must sometimes navigate uncertainties that come our way. Take this racoon family for instance – one moment they were in the safe haven of the marsh and then suddenly the rising floodwaters rolled in and forced them to retreat to higher ground.
Everyone who lives on the coast knows that September is the prime month for hurricane season. Fortunately, thanks to the westward indentation of the coastline called the Georgia Bight, the Gulf Stream passes us 40+ miles off shore steering most hurricanes past our area. The last time we took a direct hit was 1898!
Whatever storms you may be facing in life, take time on your journey this fall to pause and enjoy the high tides, watch the squirrels gather and bury acorns for the cooler season ahead, notice that some of our trees do indeed change colors during the Fall, and watch our great expanses of marsh change from summer green to golden ochre and browns with a hint of magenta.
