I know I'm so late with this post, but I still wanted to share some lovely walks I shared with Ruby on a couple of fine Autumn days not too long ago. However, it seems like overnight around here a lot of the leaves have fallen....so it's not quite as pretty anymore. ::sigh:: The signal of the end of another Fall season that I will miss so much.....until next year!! ;)
Of course we start out in our backyard where we tell Ruby to quit chasing the squirrels up the trees and that it's time to get her collar on and get ready for our walk! She knows the word "walk" and comes running immediately and gets so excited she bounces around like a bunny until I get her collar on her.
And then we walk along several different roads around our neighborhood and down along the bay itself. I love crunching the leaves and pine needles under my feet. Such a satisfying sound! These photos were over 2 different walks. One was a walk that was earlier in the day and a brighter day in general. The other walk was around sunset time and a darker day - that's why the brightness and trees may look different in each photo. I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area with lovely parks and streets to stroll with my Ruby.
And of course right along the bay itself. There's one road that has such a perfect lookout spot, and so of course it's my favorite place to grab a photo opportunity!! You can just barely see our dock way off in the distance and in more upper right of this photo.
There are many lovely and very charming homes in my neighborhood. And I love the driveway in these last 2 pics. They always dress up their mailbox, the little area along their driveway, and then they have lamposts up their lane that they hang flowers from in the summer and leaf baskets in the Fall.
And of course there's no place like home! After a lovely walk I always love to walk up our own long driveway lined with big pine trees (sorry forgot to take a photo from there). And then you come up to our address sign (I discreetly covered our address with the "leaves"). Please excuse our driveway - my hubby recently repaired some rough spots with tar until they can come and redo it next Spring. We also have landscapers coming next Spring to plant and decorate around our address sign. I think it will be pretty cute! And of course I'm keeping it real with kiddos' bikes and hockey net out. Just daily life her folks. ;)
Now this weekend we're getting ready to hang up our spooky Halloween decorations and put out our jack-o-lanterns and have them glow. I can't believe Halloween is Monday already!! Have a wonderfully cozy late Autumn weekend my Friends. Thank you for joining me on my walks around the neighborhood. ;)
