Welcome to Open Link Night everyone! This is Gayle from Bodhirose’s Blog and I’ll be your host for today.

The U.S. is well into fall now and I know many temperatures are beginning to drop, the trees are bursting into their fall colors and it’s also a popular time for many fall festivals and art shows around the country.

In my home town of Orlando, the surrounding attractions have many special shows and programs at this time of year mostly geared towards children and upcoming Halloween.  Another large draw in nearby Daytona Beach is Biketoberfest where motorcycle enthusiasts come from across the country and beyond to share their love of motorcycling and racing at the Daytona International Speedway.  I spent many a year at this gathering as my (ex) husband was an avid motorcyclist and participant in some of the amateur races with his friends.

There’s definitely been a palpable change in the weather here of late. The humidity has dropped as well as several degrees of heat during our days.  Such a welcome relief!
