An Autumn Day in the Northwest

We finally had a nice break from the rain so the DH and I went on a short road trip down to Tacoma.  Tacoma has a great walking/biking trail along it's waterfront.  Plus, there are lots of nice little cafes and places to eat. The color was very pretty.  I hope you enjoy this short walk !





 There was just enough fog and clouds to make Mt. Rainier interesting over the city.

 The mountain often gets those circular clouds over the top.  They look just a bit like space ships.

 We're home now.  The best color I have in the yard comes from my grape vine.


You've heard of the last rose of summer?  Well, I think this is the last hydrangea of summer.

Tomorrow I have planned a post showing  all the Halloween cross stitch I have done, I hope you will join me!

  13. It's a beautiful time of year here in the Northwest! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
    But in the depths of winter, Arizona looks pretty good to me. :D

  14. Such lovely fall pictures. Our trees and bushes are also very colourful but the flowers are all gone now because of some frosty nights.

  15. Such lovely pictures - the clouds about the moutain do indeed look like a spaceship. I wonder why that happens? Those grape leaves are perfect! We have had so much wind here over the past week or so that we have hardly any leaves left on anything. And we are due more today - nothing will be left I am sure! Have a great weekend!
