Autumn is a picturesque time of year here in West Michigan. We

have lots of rivers, lakes, fall color, and lots of wildlife.  This series

of photos lets you see a few residents of the Thornapple River at

their daily routine.  The Thornapple River flows into the Grand River,

the longest in the state at Ada Michigan.  Needless to say, a haven for wildlife year round.  This gaggle of geese was just off the

Thornapple Pointe Golf Club  in southeastern Kent County a few

weekends ago.

You might have to really look at this picture to see the details. 

When I went to our local food store recently, I needed to to make a

necessary stop.  When I saw the bathroom, I had to go to my car and get

get my camera to take this shot above.  Our local grocery store is one of

the best I have ever been in.  They listen to their customers and try to

make life easier and more convenient for them.

We (and everyone we know) love Forest Hills Foods.  This is just one of a

dozen reasons.  If you have little children, would they like to go to the

bathroom where they can have a stool and sink at their height?

Would it make it a fun experience for them?  You bet!

Thanks again, Forest Hills Foods, for thinking about your customer’s

grocery store experience.

Nature has so many lessons to teach us.  We don’t always pay attention

to what she is saying but when we do….we have a chance to share a

moment of clarity and wisdom.  On our excursion through the Grand

Rapids area yesterday, we encountered this maple tree.  How many

times have we sped past and not noticed it? Hundreds, probably. 

Why did we notice it yesterday?

It shone out its brilliant yellow light on a rainy day, saying:

Look at me!  In a few days my golden leaves will be on the ground,

so notice me today….right now! maple in fall Grand river Dr

We did. We stopped to take a photo and share it with you.  Each day

we have the opportunity to notice and appreciate the beauty around us.

We are so busy and distracted in our lives, we often walk right

by things that are interesting or novel.  It just takes a moment

to notice and  it can certainly change your outlook and

maybe make you smile.  We were in a store shopping for hardware

the other day.  It was a cold, windy day and we were backing

out of our parking spot, when we noticed two little ones that

had found a warm, safe place to sit for a few moments.

This close up shows them much better.

Were the tires warm?

Are they looking for food ? 

We don’t know the answers but it gave us a little different perspective

on the day. 

We were inside a nice warm car with a nice warm lunch we had just

finished.  These little sparrows were happy to find a temporary shelter

hoping to glean a crumb or two from people coming and going in the

parking lot.

West Michigan has 4 seasons and fall or autumn is one of our favorites. 

The foliage on the trees is yellow, red, orange, shades of green, and

brown.  It all combines to paint  lovely colors all over our landscape.

We captured a few photos of the fall season here in Ada Michigan

on the Thornapple River this last weekend.  All were take from

Thornapple Pointe Golf Club near the Gerald R Ford International

Airport, just southeast of Grand Rapids.

In fact, we joke that it is the TCPB course here…….trains, cars,

planes, and boats can all be seen and heard from the course.

We had an airboat travel down the river while we were playing

but I didn’t get my camera out in time to catch it in a photo.

This was captured yesterday playing golf at Thornapple Pointe Golf Course

on the Thornapple River in Grand Rapids Michigan. 

My friend, Paul, and I got in a quick 18 holes in the afternoon. 

The golf course was pretty open which left me time to snap a few shots

of our local scenery.   This little maple is putting on quite a show!
