The first signs of autumn were visible as I walked through downtown and into Beacon Hill Park. A few trees are turning colour and even shedding their leaves already; and, the air is cool and almost foggy. My favourite time of year!

Our hot, dry summer has been replaced with a lovely mix of rainy days, stormy days and mild sunny days, in nice proportion. Here’s a recent early morning sky looking towards downtown from Dockside Green. Happy Labour Day everyone!

Caught a beautiful sky in my neighbourhood the other day, as the daylight was fading away. We are finally starting to have some real autumn days after a very prolonged and delightful summer. My favourite time of year!

Today, with a light fog rolling through the city, I walked through Beacon Hill Park. I love foggy mornings best. The leaves are changing rapidly now and the shiny brown horse chestnuts are mostly down.

The mornings are cooler now which is delightful. Yesterday I went straight to the waterfront on Dallas Drive at the bottom of Government Street. A single crow watched me carefully in case I was carrying a muffin. Sadly for us both, I was not.

I’ve been walking for about an hour a few mornings each week. I love the light and the cool, and the way the air smells. Here are a couple snaps from yesterday.
