this lake

Typically, I run for exercise. I have one friend I walk with regularly, but she’s out of the country right now. And when we get together to walk, we WALK, we don’t amble and take pictures. Today I had some time between appointments, so I took the opportunity to stroll around Green Lake, a favorite walking spot, camera in hand.

When I was in Texas a couple of weeks ago, I realized for perhaps the first time that not all parts of the country experience autumn in as dramatic a fashion as we do here. So here are a few fall images for those of you in those parts of the world with an autumn that comes and goes without fanfare.

Imagine me waking up in Clearwater Florida and seeing my favorite spot in the world. Green Lake, in your post. My husband and I have a business up the hill on 83rd. So we do a bit of back and forth, he more then I. Boy do I miss this time of the year. Or sitting outside at Dukes with some clam chowder! Your blog keeps me connected to Seattle, thank you.

Count me as one of those people who lives in a place which doesn't do Autumn (which makes me a bit gloomy as I adore this season) so I love to look at beautiful images like this.

Thank you for the nature photos. They ease my mind, and soothe my soul.

I've been thinking lately that I would like to walk just to take in the great outdoors. I so rarely walk without Purpose, and I think I've been missing out on some important things.

Your lake reminds me of my favorite lake! Everyone needs a favorite lake.

We get color as you do. I still have memories of one particular trip to NY in autumn, though, where I was absolutely blown speechless by the spectacular color. I think it is partly the color, but also the abundance of the particular deciduous trees that experience that color. I know from having family in Arizona that fall color is a little different.
