Autumnal Walk

Michael and I finally managed to get out for an autumnal walk today. The weather was freakishly warm and dry for this time of year, and where I live, you have to make the most of good weather when you get it as it doesn't stay like that for long!
Michael has a good camera and has recently got into photography, so he was busy taking lots of pictures today. We went to a local beauty spot called The Jumbles.
Crunch Crunch - stomping through the leaves!

Michael wanders down this lovely leafy path

The Jumbles Reservoir. This looks like high summer, not October!

And you have to have a pit stop don't you? We shunned the super busy cafe, found a nice quiet bench overlooking the reservoir and took our own flask of coffee and some retro biscuits! Good old Blue Ribands! (Nestle's oldest biscuits, launched in 1936 and still going strong!)


  1. I love this time of the autumn when there are lots of yellow leaves on the ground and also still in the trees. Before things start to look like a horror movie (or at least here, where it gets really dark).

  2. Ah yes I love this time of year, we don't go for walks often as it's not easy for OH but even we have said we need to do an autumnal walk, obviously it'll be a short one but still that feeling of crunching through leaves can't be beat

  3. Fall colors, coffee and biscuits (cookies in my neck of the woods). Who could ask for more? It's been a really warm fall here as well. Let's enjoy it while it lasts.
