come for a Saturday stroll with me

my sister called down this morning, with her collie puppy - Scotty - all of 6 months old, he is just so lovely and fluffy, and she brought Mollie with her also (although I have just noticed that Mollie - black curlie haired border collie cross with something is not in any of the photos)

So we headed down the path...

and out of the gate.. must pick up the leaves later!

which way to go?

let's follow the train tracks then....

isn't this just the perfect little tranquil spot,

autumn is a very favourite time of year for me, I just love all the changing colours on the trees, and it is just such lovely warm day today, makes a dramatic change from last week when it was so cold and miserably WET..

and look at how lovely the sky is, the sun is trying to peek thru all those clouds...

and look at this, not at all angry as it may suggest, but the cloud mix is something else!

and back up the road towards home again. Poor wee Scotty is quite pooped, bet he will sleep most of the rest of the morning...

and on with the day. We (rowing boy, french chic and her Mum are heading out of town this afternoon to look at a countryish church for the wedding, up on the coast about 40 mins north of Dunedin. So I am off to clean rowing man's car 'cos it is a right cesspool!

have a fun Saturday!

Really enjoyed going on your Saturday walk with you, I too love autumn and all the wonderful colours of the changing trees. Hope you had a lovely Sunday - we've had WIND and rain most of the weekend :( Managed to squeeze in a 2 hour bike along the river trail yesterday before the heavens opened again... Hugs Jx

What a lovely walk. Clouds are amazing things I love to sit and look at them constantly changing. Rowing man and I would get on well my car is a mess it is one of those jobs I hate.
