The wind was blowing through the trees that lined our path. Their colors were glorious!
We headed through a meadow, where last summer's blooms were now turned to seed pods.
We headed up a hill and into the woods, where there were more autumn treasures to behold:
We finally headed down the hill and back to our car. Before we left, I took a final wander through The Fin Project, a sculpture installation by John Young, created from the fins of 1960s-era attack submarines. How appropriate that this unusual and peaceful art installation is located on what was once a U.S. Naval Air Station.
Sadly, our walk was over, and it was time to return to the world of errands and laundry, but I was energized by this wonderful start to my day.
