Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

Halloween iv
What could be a more “marvellous treat” than walking along Spanish Banks on a perfect October morning in Vancouver and being greeted by a pile of perfect pumpkins set against the beauty of Howe Sound looking towards Lighthouse Park, Bowen Island and the distant mountains that in a week or two will be covered in snow.

After leaving the beach we set off along the Admiralty Trail in the Pacific Spirit Regional Park where the autumnal colours were simply mesmerizing as you will have seen in my post to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween

Studio 365: Day 300

Here we are back home again and it’s Day 300. After all the glorious colours in England and France all I had to do today was step outside to find autumn had come to my own back door.

It’s hard to believe that three hundred days have gone by since I committed to posting every day throughout the year, and so far I have been able to keep to my goal. On both Day 100 and Day 200 I looked back at some of the paintings from the previous one hundred days, so it seemed like a good idea to do so for Day 300 today.

Only sixty five more days to go.

Studio 365: Day 298

Home tomorrow after two glorious weeks travelling in Southern England and South West France with dearest friends. The photos each day have been just a selection of so many magical and unforgettable moments; and how lucky we have been that the weather cooperated with blue skies and sunshine almost every day.

Thanks to all of you who joined us, albeit virtually. It was great to be able to share the holiday with you and I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
