When we woke up this morning it was raining – not a soft rain – but a relentless, pounding downpour! I was so disappointed – I had really been looking forward to this walk. But as the day opened the skies lifted and the rain stopped and the walk went from a quick meander in a small park to a perfect seaside scramble – no wind, only a little rain and an amazing sky.
This morning the air and skies took center stage as we walked Piper’s Lagoon. The tide was very high – right up to the logs, and there was no beach.
The Mallard Ducks were thrilled. The tide was well up into the beach grasses and the ducks were feasting, bobbing up and down, appearing and disappearing through the grass.
Autumn has really hit the park. The Garry Oak leaves are turning colour rapidly and dropping to the ground. The wild rose hips are red against the bare grey brown branches and the grasses and weeds are browning out as well.
The landscape was coloured by the sky this morning – the storm light and sun light moving and blending as the skies opened and closed.
There are still a few late blooming daisies in the garden, but everything else is loosing leaves and changing colour – fall has definitely arrived!
I haven’t blogs for a while – my focus has been very narrow and I have missed this outlet. I put my life on hold while knitting Rhiannon’s Cloak for the competition. Then I have had to catch up on everything that didn’t get done then. I am starting to see the light and this morning’s skies were so perfect!
I hope that you enjoy the walk and looking up!
