The Days of Autumn


On Sunday, Motor Man and I took a drive, which we do quite often.

But this Sunday wasn’t an ordinary day. It was an amazingly beautiful autumn day.

 Our journey included a ferry ride across the James.  I’ve never seen a sky so clear.

The trees in our area are now showing their autumn colors.  These are in the little town of Surry.  You can always count on these trees to be a beautiful orangey-red in the fall.

Then we stopped at Bacon’s Castle, one of my very favorites places on earth. I love looking at these pictures: they really show how beautiful the day was.

The trees at Bacon’s Castle are bright yellows and oranges.

 Just look at that carpet of leaves.

Days as perfect as Sunday just don’t come along too often.
