RAIN RAIN GO AWAY ~~~


Or maybe I should say
~~~ DRIZZLE DRIZZLE GO AWAY ~~~

With Topical Storm Karen petering out,
our shores will only get a smidgen of wetness.
So typical with autumn weather
just slightly curtailing our longer excursions ~~~


But not our visits to the city.
 We just cut through the heart of it
to reach the park ~~~


 returning  a slightly different route
heading for a coffee / tea break
so paramount on "their" minds.


I end up staring out the car window ~~

" while trying to figure what the graffiti says on the walls "


and remembering that the park walks really 
rank No. 1 
on my daily to-do list.
~~~
RAIN or SHINE
they are DIVINE !!

      Squirrels, for some reason don't intrigue me ~~~ I don't know why but they scoot by and I say ~~ OK that's nice !! LOL
      Such a nut I am sometimes !!

  6. Your dads leave you in the car alone? You could drive away and then come back before they know you're gone! snicker snicker sneak

    1. Yes, they do leave me alone in the car only when the temperature is perfect and there's no weirdos around and I have had a good run ~~ the list goes on. I have never been left at home alone ~~ I don't understand that concept. Weird I know.
      Being retired these guys decided that my life and their lives were to be as ONE!!

      Now I just have to get my Driver's Licence !!

  11. Cool shots! Very psychedelic. Has daddy Ron been smoking any funny stuff over there, Sophie? Not that you're rat him out! :)

    We've had some rain for these past two days, but I think it's the end of it. Starting tomorrow, it looks like the sun is back, and I can photograph some more autumn splendour. Don't you just love this time of year?

    1. Yes, oh yes, the fall really is a photographer's paradise ~~ what I discovered is that I enjoy photos in the rain and then playing with them. Oh man, some of the effects available really give interesting results. I'm hooked on one right now, which you might have noticed.

      Yesterday and today it's raining ~~ YAY ~~ more pictures. Sun is supposed to come out this afternoon in time for family to arrive from Edmonton.....!!

  16. Hey SD! I loved the video of you conquering your fear and jumping off the dock to get Mr. Orangie! You did it, girl! Yeah! You should have had one of them jump in and fetch Mr. Orangie ~ I bet that video would have gone viral! LOL! We had a surprise visitor ~ Terry's sister Noreen. Her labs Ruffus and Gracie are flying into Colorado from New Delhi, India, this morning, so Noreen spent last night with us. What fun! With a hectic weekend and Noreen's surprise visit, I'm behind in everything on-line again! Tell Ron for me, "Don't even mention Facebook!" It's great to see Jim looking chipper again! I hope you and the dads are off to a good week! Take care!
