I’m sliding in at the last moment to participate in Robin’s Walktober. Life’s busy pace really hasn’t slowed down but I am not complaining! But that is my reason for only having a “mini-stroll” to share with you rather than a nice meandering walk like I would prefer. In the middle of a busy but wonderful day yesterday, I took a few moments to enjoy some warm autumn sunshine and have a little stroll. These are iPhone photos that I’m using once again. (I can hear the Canon Rebel grumbling in the corner).

In the middle of many errands and preparations for a wonderful dinner with great friends at my house last night, I decided to stroll by our local pond and enjoy a breather of fresh air and sunshine.
Color and reflection

It was about 65 degrees yesterday and I took a few moments to appreciate that as I ambled the tiny beach.

There is a pretty path that goes a little further into the trees surrounding the pond, but I knew I didn’t have the time to spare to walk it on this particular day. This is the entrance to it.
The path not taken

Instead I enjoyed the leaves and the light floating on the water…
Sunshine on the water

…and breathing deeply and remembering that life is good.

Thank you Robin for once again hosting Walktober.


  1. It was a lovely stroll – can you believe 65 at the end of October?!

    • Thanks Carol. 65 was a wonderful respite from the chill that is starting to seep in.

  2. This was fun to read…to imagine your stroll. Like Carol, I paused with the “65 degrees”. We had a day like that yesterday–a small miracle! Happy fall, Karma.

    • Thanks Robin. Days like that one are good ones to remember when the chill of late autumn begins to creep in, as it inevitably will.

    • Thanks Dawn. I’m sure my own furry prince and princess would be quite peeved to know that I took this one without them! They are overdue for a nice long walk.
