Sunday Walk

This was the view out of the bedroom window on Sunday morning:



That clear, blue sky certainly invited me to get out for a walk.





And the road ahead invited me to keep going.


The sunshine was abundant, but its warmth did not penetrate the shade.

I am sure some will puzzle over why I leave for Florida.






So beautiful...

And then I started remembering the last autumn tour of northern Vermont that Mike and I took.  I do have so many wonderful times to remember even as I miss him and hurt and rage over the loss of our future memories that will not be made.

It is a process...

  1. Some might wonder, but I don't! It is beautiful out there now. You have some beautiful photos of the last weekend. It was perfect weather, wasn't it?

  2. What a lovely area you live in. Your photos are beautiful. The structure in photo 7 looks as though it has seen some history!

    The "loss of future memories" very poignant.

  3. Gorgeous photos! Love New England autumns! I can imagine how difficult each bend in the road is for you. Hold fast to those memories.

  4. I think fall is the best time in your part of the country. And winter is the best time in Florida.

  5. Still sending hugs -- the pain is not going to go away over night. And thank you for the tour -- I love your walks and the photos you share.

  6. Vermont is gorgeous all year around, but especially in the fall. And there is a very good reason for vacating in winter - it is COLD, COLD, COLD - for a LONG time. I know I am getting less tolerant of the cold each year.
    Thinking of you each day as you move on.

  7. Wonderful shots. You do live in a picture postcard state, especially in the Fall. However, it is hard to beat a Florida winter.
    "the loss of future memories" explains so well the pain and anger you must feel.

  9. Yes, wonderful memories. Always keep them in mind. I love autumn colors that we don't see in Hawaii.

  10. These are such beautiful photos. Are you driving all that way by yourself? I'm a little worried about that. Do I need to be?

  11. No need to worry. I'll put on my big girl panties, charge my phone, and turn on the GPS.

  12. I'm still going to worry, but I'll worry less. Check in with us so we know all is well.

  13. So glad you're taking in that gorgeous fall beauty in VT! Thank goodness for your memories, Olga - Mike would want you to remember and would want you to smile, I bet. It must be so very hard - I think of you often as I walk through my own fall.

  15. I would have loved going on this walk with you! The warmth is leaving our sunshine now too, and 60 plus will be an unusual occurrence. While I have no desire to go south for the winter, I would love those occasional escapes to warm sunny places.
