A Perfect Autumn Day
Warm sunny days, crisp starry nights, leaves changing color, afternoon thunderstorms…Fall has arrived in Big Bear and I for one am thrilled! I love cozy sweaters and boots, the sound of leaves blowing in the breeze, the smell of burning fireplaces…autumn is my favorite season.
Many people vacation here in the summer to escape the heat and enjoy the lake. Whether its boating, kayaking, parasailing or jet skis, Big Bear Lake does offer a multitude of options for summer fun.
Winter is also a popular season, with folks renting cabins to enjoy the holidays skiing, snowboarding or sledding with family and friends. There is no doubt that winter in Big Bear is magical.
Autumn is that time in between the two that seems to be forgotten. People are busy getting back to school, settling once again into their routines and thinking about the holidays coming up in a couple of months. Many people have never experienced Big Bear in the fall and if that includes you, let me tell you what you’re missing:
I love waking up early on a crisp, fall morning, grabbing a blanket, slippers and a warm cup of tea or coffee and watching the sun rise from a chair on the deck. I can hear the birds singing and the squirrels frolicking. I can smell the pines and the homey scent of fireplaces burning. Amazing. Later in the morning, I can take a walk or bike ride with the family. If we’re feeling adventurous, that would take the form of a hike or mountain bike ride in the forest, but if we wanted something relaxing, it would be a leisurely stroll through the Village or an easy ride on the pedal path along the lake shore. Heading out on the lake in a boat or kayak is another option that I might choose. Either way, we are bound to see plenty of wildlife preparing for winter. After dinner, either home-cooked, barbecued, or at one of Big Bear’s many restaurants, we would enjoy some goodies with a warm mug of hot chocolate either snuggled up in front of the fireplace watching a movie or while star-gazing out on the deck. After the kids settled into bed, the hubby and I would enjoy a soak in the hot tub under the stars. A perfect autumn day.
