I like canoes, remote lakes, and sunsets. THAT is a cool picture!
An evening in Georgetown (Washington, D.C.)
All the leaves are off the trees but I refuse to take down autumn decor and put up Christmas until after Thanksgiving. The gorgeous colors are still in my living room at least.
I managed to slip off for the weekend and take in a little fall color. There wasn't a whole lot left after a week of rain, but still enough to enjoy.

Grab a cup of your favorite tea and imagine a foggy autumn landscape.
Close your eyes...
Living close to a forest means I get to see so much wildlife, deer that were fawns only yesterday, are all but fully grown juveniles now. It's a similar story with the young foals, and the rest of the forest animals, a sure sign that summer is ending. Autumn creeps up so quickly, then before you know it we are adjusting the clocks, the evenings are dark and the temperature has dropped.
That's unless you're one of the southern hemisphere Loungers, lucky you. Christmas, reindeers and Santa always seem at odds with the weather when Christmas is summer time.
I've already begun seeing trees starting to turn here in Illinois.
No leaves changing yet down here, but the coffee shop by work had the pumpkin spice lattes on the menu today.

I'm a little surprised that the "pumpkin spice everything" invasion hasn't struck in our area yet. Of course, now that I've typed that I'll go to the store tomorrow and it'll be everywhere.
Yes, I'm looking forward to the leaves changing and that first cold morning when a sweater is necessary, but it isn't fall for me until these ⇩ show up in the store.
I'd like to be a deeper person who talks about the change of seasons and the cycle of life, blah, blah, blah, but what I'm really looking forward to is the orange marshmallow pumpkin. I hope they had a good crop this year.
Life outside of London took a while getting used to. I certainly didn't miss the inflated housing market, nor the street crime, but London is my city and despite everything, it's such a fabulous place, is it any wonder that it attracts visitors from all over the world, every single day. Here's some shots of Autumnal London.
But if you think that I'm getting nostalgic, think on, I am more than happy to stroll to the end of the road that I live in, straight into the forest, to see, on an Autumn morning, a sight like this:
Must confess haven't noticed the trees-leave before dawn and often return late-but the dawn air is cooler.
And, of course, the Bears have already lost a game...to the Packers dammit.
Last Saturday night it was cool and rainy enough for us to make homemade French Onion Soup. Can beef and mushroom stew be far away??
Oh, that looks good!
As the sun rises on Sunday, 4th November, more than 400 intrepid drivers and their hardy passengers will set out on the world famous, London to Brighton Veteran Car Run. If you have never seen it, look it up on YouTube. It's an amazing event, everything from the cars to the Edwardian clothes, and it's always held in the Autumn.
And the London to Brighton Run has been going on for decades. There is a delightful 1953 movie called Genevieve in which the Run is the central feature.
Here in San Francisco, September-October is when we get what the rest of the country calls summer. It was 92 here last Friday.
