I checked out Melanie's blog jellybean angel this evening, she has some really lovely photos of her countryside - and then I checked out Connie's blog, where she was talking about the simple things in life, so I thought that I would share with you some photos that Rowing Man and I took early on on Saturday..
we wandered through the botanical gardens - where the leaves were all falling from the trees..thru the university - the old..

the new..
and the traditional - simply everyone has their graduation photos taken under this old clock tower building - it is a real university landmark!
past the new shopping mall (it was closed thank goodness!)the museum was open however....
.... they have the best ever coffee shop so maybe it was open for early bird brekky seekers,
and still we wandered....

Awesome photos, as are the ones of Paris, especially the lighted E. tower, oh my, how gorgeous is that. Makes me want to be there, sitting in a sidewalk cafe, and having coffee.......happy thought.
Thanks for the link/mention of my blog, how nice of you.

Hia Shiree, thanks for visiting my blog. I am so glad you are liking the photos on it. Next time I will be sharing Oxfordshire where I grew up -so special to me.

I love your old buildings. I suffer from porch envy very readily and love the porches in the old buildings you showed. What a lovely place to visit and see Autumnal colours. It's my fav season because of the colours.
