First, a lovely shot from our Autumn walk the last weekend.
And now just back from a walk, out rather late we went up the ridge a little ways, by the high vineyard, (um… which is sorely lacking a vineyard for the present)…
Then we turned around , and went into the woods. Here , knitting poised on a log, and with not much progress from the last photo of it….
Then we decided to explore and left the trail, began crawling through and over all sorts of things, collecting all sorts of burrs and stuff in our hair, to scout out new places.
Oh look! Another huge mushroom growing from a dead tree!
… we ended up at a rather tall henge-like rock out-cropping I did not recognize.
(I’ll take another photo of this place another time soon, in the mist, for affect).
Seriously though, with different angles to the familiar places, I thought there for a few minutes we were lost. (not really that would be rather impossible) A glance easterly and I see Mt Diablo in the distance, a good bearing.
Then I knew where we were exactly and that there’d be close by the old dilapidated bench from one of the abandoned old shacks nearby….
Sure enough, after scrambling through a few bushes, there it was !
A great little secret picnic & knitting spot, wouldn’t you say?
Have you been out on any walks this Autumn yet?
I’m so jealous….
Perhaps you might wander down the wooded path tonight after work, and sooth your jealousy?? 🙂 xx
No silly, that was not Annadel, was it… but Armstrong woods???
I loved that storm ! Glad you got to be out in it 🙂
No long walks this autumn yet, but a few days pencilled in soon.
Lizzi, I be you’re running though… and that is the same thing ! I am working hard on my ‘ constant knit-trekking ‘…. going slow, but doing it! xx
It is great to appreciate the countryside and get a bit of exercise, too.
Keep at it!
Liz, I am just in from a 2-hour knit-trek , wherein I have knit half of a Penny Candy hat (did all the lace and now just the decreases and then I’ll be done.
And saw hot-air balloons on my way up the ridge !
