A Weekend Walk

Oldest son came over to watch college football with us on Saturday.
He brought along shrimp cocktail and a seven layer dip with chips which served as lunch.
Once the football game was over and the food was devoured, it seemed like there was only one thing to do.

Get out there on that beautiful fall day and take a walk.
Hopefully burn off some of those calories while getting some fresh air and exercise.

We decided to explore one of the trails in the neighborhood.
It provided a good workout with several inclines.  
I wanted to soak up every bit of the vibrant fall foliage before it all disappears until next year.

Near the end of our hike we came to this outdoor fireplace.

It was hard to pass up the opportunity to sit a spell.

Brett made himself comfortable in the nearby chairs.
I tried them out too and, in truth, could have sat there for quite awhile enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.

But, since it was exercise we were after, it was time to hop back on the trail toward home.

The little beaver that someone had set on the fireplace mantle added a touch of whimsy.

How was your weekend?



  1. You made the right choice! A walk over a nap is a very good thing. It's so pretty there. Some of the leaves are almost rosy.

  2. It was the perfect weekend weatherwise wasn't it Kim? It should remain lovely for the coming week too.
    What a charming son to bring such yummy things to eat before your walk in your colorful neighborhood.
    Thanks for the get well wishes - back to the doctor today!

  3. What a great place to walk! Lots of beautiful foliage to enjoy, and a little spot to rest somewhere along the way. The perfect way to spend some time on a Sunday.

  4. You have a lot of lovely Fall colour and a great place to walk. I assume that fireplace isn't in someone's back yard? LOL

  5. I can't think of anything I'd like better than taking a walk on a beautiful fall day. :)

  6. It still looks so pretty in your area! We're now having very cold temps (30's during the day), so most of the trees are now bare. Lots of gray skies, too. Where in the world was this beautiful fireplace, especially with a fire going? I can't imagine that being just out in the open somewhere and not on someone's private property!

    1. The fire pit is near the entrance to our neighborhood. We are near the back of the neighborhood. When we walk that far it is a nice spot to take a little break.

  7. What a beautiful walk! I think the leaves have the prettiest this year. Of course, I probably say that every fall. :) Sure is pretty there!

  8. Kim, what a beautiful hike you all had! I love that fireplace, so beautiful! Love the little beaver on the mantel!! :)
