After helping to pick a few sauna rocks, I left her on the beach to take pictures of footprints in the sand.
I decided to give my aching knee a break and not come back down these steps once I hauled my buckets of rocks to the top.
Instead, I spent my time wandering around in the park enjoying the sound of the dry leaves crunching under my feet.
On such a beautiful day, it was hard to believe that November has arrived and it won't be very long before these leaves are covered with snow.
There are still a few trees that are refusing to give up their leaves.
I haven't spent much time with my sewing machine all summer, but on the cold rainy days we've had I've started to cut out fabric and play a little bit - so I suspect I'll find time soon to start stitching.
All this color will have to be my sunshine for awhile.
