Smitten by Autumn

I guess I’m making the mental transition into fall. I got this view walking back from the mail box this afternoon.  Gee it’s lovely. Mild temperature, slight drizzle and stunning colors with the mountains in the background.

Fall morning

Quite a different view than yesterday: mild, light rain, beautiful trees.

Fall Sunrise

Beautiful fall sunrise today but the forecast looks gray for the rest of the week.

Another Warm Weather Record

From the National Weather Service-Seattle:

High in Seattle today 74. 114th day this year with a high 70° or more. Record for # of days with highs 70 plus in a year…115 (1992).

So in addition to the record number of days over 80 we now have one for days over 70.

Photo Effects

I’ve been playing around with some photo effects software. I kind of like this variation of one of my favorite pictures of Bandon Beach in Oregon:

Home Again

The return trip from Denver to North Bend was pleasant and uneventful. I had a window seat and caught a glimpse of the Grand Tetons over Wyoming.

Denver Golf Day 3

Our brief golf sojourn ended with a morning round at Red Hawk Ridge near Castle Rock, CO. This isn’t an especially scenic course but its wide fairways and generous greens present scoring opportunities for hacker golfers. I had perhaps my best ball-striking day ever tagging two 270-yards plus drives and recording no blow-up holes for a final score of 86. I finally felt like the March lessons and countless hours of practice over the past couple of months are paying dividends.


Great back swing…


… and perfect impact position
