Come October and Brac takes on a very different aspect from the summer scene of holiday makers enjoying themselves and locals busily seeing to all their needs. With the vacationers gone, there's time now for local residents to see to their own needs, time to give an old stone roof a coating of lime wash to waterproof it against winter storms, time for vintage - to pick the grapes and make the wine. The cherries and apricots of early summer are long gone, now it's the rosy globes of ripening pomegranates that hang on the trees. The beaches are deserted, the pleasure boats mothballed - only fishermen venture out of the harbour now.
Visitors will find most of the restaurants and bars closed, the shops that sell the knick-knacks and trinkets, swimsuits and sunscreen that make a summer holiday all have their shutters down. The weather can be quite changeable, balmy days giving way to chilly nights. It certainly isn't the time to come looking for sun and days lazing on a beach but it's ideal for taking long walks that the often baking days of summer preclude and for slipping into the quieter ways of island life as it was before the tourist boom.
