Giving thanks. . . . . . . . .at Thanksgiving

Today is beautiful outside.
What I would call a perfect Autumn day.

Here at the cottage we have noisy workmen repairing our deck and
 gazebo - wood rots after years of rain no matter how hard you try to preserve it.
We have been somewhat upset with the carpenter - he has not been here every
 day as promised, in fact disappeared leaving his tools behind, so the job is taking
 much longer than planned. Thankfully he is here today and has a helper so things
 are now moving along!

This morning I was totally stressed out and needed to get away from banging,
 drilling and sawing - so off to Eastgate Park just five minutes drive away.
Parked, walked through the woods, around the pond, sat and watched the
 Canada geese, sad that the ducks we loved now seem gone. I took in
 the Autumn colors now at their peak, the reflections in the water turning the 
landscape into amazing paintings only possible by Nature.

May your Thanksgiving be special tomorrow.


  1. And yours as well, Mary. I was just thinking what a wise choice you made to leave the racket behind. (I might have hunkered down and later wondered why I was annoyed and rattled.) Such beautiful photographs of the park. They are soothing and calming.

  2. Oh Mary, What beautiful fall sights you have nearby. Hoping the workmen can finish today. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bob.

  3. Mary, as always, your images are totally amazing. I feel as if I took that walk! Like you, I like to get away to nature for a calming, meditative walk. Hope the project ends soon. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bob, Mary. Your photos are full of autumn colour, so rich and beautiful.

  5. What amazing colours in your beautiful photos. Happy Thanksgiving to you from Australia.

  6. Least you can be sure of one thing, the autumn there is no different to here in the UK. Happy Thanks Giving

  7. So beautiful! I hope the workers get done, so you can enjoy the holiday season in peace!

  8. Oh WOW Mary .... beautiful Autumn photographs ... what a wonderful time of year it is ... such amazing colours.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. XXXX
