    Shoreline Social Report: September 30 – October 4

    local events

    Is it just me, or is there something magical about the early days of Fall? Every year I marvel at the changing colors and the light filtering through the trees. The landscape just seems to glow! This weekend is looking to be another great one with full sunshine and temps in the mid 60s. The perfect combo for a trip to the orchard or pumpkin patch!
