Vacation photos 1: Nature

Autumn has always been my favorite season.

Moss will devour the world.

The next two pictures are of a different stream, which runs near my parents’ house. I spent an inordinate amount of time sitting on its banks when I was in high school. No, I didn’t have a social life, why do you ask?

    Wow. That is gorgeous. I would have spent an inordinate amount of time by the stream, too.

    At least they didn’t call it a “crick”, like they do in VA.

    Say, that looks just like Connecticut! I miss Connecticut.

    Magnificent scenery! Wow!
    The only creek I’ve sat around is the Ballona Creek. It crosses Fairfax just north of Venice Blvd. It’s very urban. We call it the Fairfax Delta. Not half as inspiring as the McClean Game Refuge!

    i mean that in the nicest possible way, but only because it’s directed at you.

    Yeah, it’s not really like central Australia. There’s water for a start. I see what you mean.

    I was about to say that we didn’t have a stream, but we did have a crick… and then I saw monkeygurrl’s post and thought: “whoops”.

    I’m not even from Virginy. But I love setting by moving water. 6 Thanksgivings ago, when Annika was in Chicago and we were missing each other ridiculously, some friends and I went up to a cabin not far from Big Bear. I spent a lot of time sitting by a little stream near the cabin. It’s nice watching stuff move by.
