The Last of the Fall Colors

"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go."  -  unknown

I kept looking out the window as I was washing the breakfast dishes.  I wanted to get outside. 

A few weekends ago, we visited Tennessee.  It was dark when we arrived, I had no idea the colors of the leaves until the next morning.  There were a lot of leaves down, but the ones that were still up were gorgeous.

And this morning...there was...fog...

If I could have picked the weather for the drive home, I would have chosen a dark blue, cloudless sky as a backdrop for the last of the Smokey Mountain fall colors.  But as luck would have it, the drive back home was rainy and foggy.

John randomly exited the highway and drove a down a little two lane road, which didn't really seem to go anywhere except to more beautiful views of the fall colors...mixed with fog...

I also found this little caterpillar.  Isn't there an old wives tale about the color of  caterpillars and what the winter weather will be like...

Here in the US, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week.  If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, remember to save room for dessert and count all your blessings, twice. :)  

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have  a wonderful Thanksgiving!

A Foggy Morning

white."  -  Jonathon Lockwood Huie

The morning fog didn't last long, but it was long enough to get me thinking...

On Safari...Sort Of

Going on an African safari has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember.
