Orange and Black

It was a warm sunny day. It felt so good that Buddy and I decided to drive over to Toogood pond and take a walk. I couldn't resist the photos of this tree. The black and orange hues just made us smile and think of Halloween.
Do trees ever invoke you to think about things?

 Recently while strolling by the pond Buddy and I were puzzled by some tiny creatures along the walkway. There were many all along the route. We stopped and examined the situation. This is what we found.

The group of three had us wondering what they might be discussing. Any thoughts on our speculation?

Time to Snooze

While the wind was blowing and the rain was drizzling Buddy and I were engaged in reading the Kindle version of the latest book  Dulcy, A Cat's Legacy by Dee Ready. Ellie, at the foot of my bed, looked on but she couldn't seem to stay focused. 
She's telling us it's time for a snooze.

Quiet Time

It is around 2 on a Thursday the afternoon around the city centre park in Ciego De Ávila. Where are all the local people? We sat on a park bench and ate a picnic lunch. It was just too quiet.

Buddy leads the Way

Buddy chose his destination on the 15th of September. We had searched for days to find the right place for his budget. Any place that had reasonable weather was checked. But on that afternoon the right price and location and reviews all just fell into place. He had one final request. He wanted Dad to join us.  A quick call to confirm if Dad wanted in on the deal and we committed to an all inclusive resort in an unfamiliar place on the beaches of Cayo Coco. Cuba, a country, until now one we had never wanted to go to, was in our future. Buddy led the way. A week later we were flying into the unknown and we are not sorry. It was an amazing way to spend the last week of September together. It was Buddy's trip.

Colours of Fall
