We're off on our almost annual, autumnal trip to cottage country. I say almost because we didn't make it last year because we still had that doddery old but much beloved cat, Bella, who required much care. She passed on a few weeks later, which enabled us to get up there for a few days in November, much too late for autumn but just in time for the first snowfall, which was rather pleasant.
Autumn is proceeding apace now, but due mostly to weather, I haven't yet taken one single solitary lonely photo. By turns, it has been either too windy, too cloudy, too rainy or too cold, or even some mixture of those sad conditions. Last evening, for example, it poured cats and dogs while it thundered, and lightninged.
Even as we head out today, planning to take the prettier backroads with the hope of catching some nice photo ops, it promises to be dull and rainy This is not really such a wonderful promise, not one I want the weatherperson to actually keep, but probably the kind that s/he will make sure to deliver. Further to that gloomy outlook, two of the next three days are predicted to be even duller and rainier. Seeing that colour has likely already peaked around the cottage, this doesn't augur propitiously for my camera and me.
So what I will do in this farewell-for-now post is leave you with a few photos from our last autumnal trip, two years ago. My farewell rather makes it sound like we're embarking on a lengthy round-the-world trip, but we'll probably be gone for only a week, give or take. So it's not actually so much a farewell as a see-you-soon.
