a windy walk

This weekend while Hurricane Irene was tearing up the eastern side of our state (and proceeding to plow into our neighbors to the north), we were fortunate to only see some stiff breezes and a few scattered showers. The temperatures were cooler, however, so we decided to take advantage of the cloudy, windy afternoon and go for a walk in a nearby park.

We did see quite a bit of debris from the trees laying on the ground which excited the kids to find green acorns and gum balls. And a few yellow leaves scattered around gave a small hint to the ending of the summer and the cooler weather that will be here soon.

I hope everyone made it through the storm with relatively little damage!


  1. I love that shot of the yellow leaf and the freen sweet gum ball. Looks like some lovely weather over your way :)

  2. Love all these signs of fall coming! We had a windy day, too, and I couldn't help but be reminded of the storm raging elsewhere.. keeping those in Irene's path close in mind throughout the day.

  3. I am so glad you are all ok! I have been thinking about you and Cindy <3


I love to hear what you think!
