It's pretty cold, but we've had a couple of great days and I enjoyed a brief visit to my old neighborhood and the harbor! It was great to see the mountains and the beaches! The rain returns today -- at least some showers, but I've had my fun for the week, so I'll share that with you as I wait for the rain. Have a beautiful week, laugh and giggle whenever you can and don't worry about tomorrow!

Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.

Thanks for all your lovely comments while I was away Sylvia. Your photos are gorgeous!

Martha Z said...

Those foggy shots are much like what I woke to this morning. Visibility here was about 50feet.

What an apt description of autumn … “the last, loveliest smile”. I particularly liked the last photo of empty benches overlooking the water and branches with only a few leaves left at the close of the season.

Jo said...

Your headers get better and better, Sylvia. How does she do it? I love the quote by George Matthew Allen. Mmm. Your photos are beautiful too. Hope you're having a great week. Jo

Wonderful shots, Sylvia! I especially love the autumn colored leaves with the fog in the background.

Kay L. Davies said...

Love the photo of the snow on the mountains, and the fog is so pretty when we don't have to commute 30 miles to work through it!

The mountains look like a dream behind the sound. I love that second photo of the mist and fall colors. Looks chilly! Thanks for the invitation to giggle, Sylvia - I think I will!

Hi there - great set of shots. There is a song about Melbourne’s changeable weather called "Four Seasons in One Day" - while you shots are not four seasons in one post they do so a remarkable range!

Splendid.

The Autumn colours are wonderful but I especially love the mystery of the swirling mist and the touches of colour!

Breathtaking photos as always! Especially the first one is spectacular. I like your blue color of the sea in the first and the last - so special. Keep smiling with the last smiles of autumn, Sylvia.

As usual your images are lovely! The last quote...oh, how apt!

Francisca said...

So glad you had a couple of great days, and the photos you share of your gorgeous old area are stellar, even the foggy one!

Gattina said...

I don't know when it rains here at the Red Sea once in a blue moon perhaps. Usually your weather looks like mine, except we don't have mountains, but here I forgot that winter is coming !

FotoAnna said...

Absolutely beautiful photo's, the colour is glorious especially in those trees in the 3rd picture, they look like flaming torches. Love those snowy mountains.
