Summer In October

Magic In The Air

This morning started like a fairly typical October day.

The air was fresh and it was a bit overcast.

Then, when I went out for my afternoon walk a spell was cast.

Out came the sun and twinkled on the sea.

Out came the people and filled every single bench on the promenade.

Out came the fairy ladder leading to who knows where.

Out came the hardy and went for a swim.

Out came the sun worshipers to sit on the beach.

And suddenly there was magic in the air and trees grew upside down in puddles.

Who knew how today would turn out?

What a wonderful surprise and much appreciated surprise!

I hope your day is magical too. 💙

What a lovely surprise to see the trees growing in the puddles. :-)
The weather was glorious for a few days.

Great post! Well done, @gillianpearce, all the photos are very beautiful. You have a really great day :).


Thanks @madlenfox. It really was a lovely day and one that should have ended for me nearly two hours ago.

I've gotten into the bad habit of being on Steemit late at night again. I really need to stop that now. I won't sleep well as a result.😢

Tomorrow I really must shut down my computer at a reasonable hour! 😊


it's our drug, ha ha.
I have the same problem :)
See you tomorrow :)


Well it's tomorrow now @madlenfox and I'm feeling very tired. I really MUST get to bed early tonight.

It's so hard though when people in other time zones come on line and start chatting.

If you see me here tonight please feel free to tell me to "go to bed"! 😂

I always enjoy reading your posts. Your photos are so beautiful, especially the first one 😊


Thank you @starjewel. That's very nice and encouraging to hear. 😊

Wonderful. And I love the photos especially the tree in water reflection. So cool. Thanks for sharing @gillianpearce


Thank you @robertandrew. The tree in the puddle was a fun find.

The next time we have weather like that I think I might go on the hunt for a whole set of reflections in puddles. 😊

Than you for visiting and for leaving a comment!

I've got the opposite day happening. First awakened to snow everywhere (will post pics later) and now it's raining. Meanwhile I have folks coming over this evening for meditation gathering for the first time, and have a bunch of stuff I need to move back and forth with the shed many yards away!


Oh my. That really is the opposite kind of day @indigoocean.

Snow? Already? A few people have posted that.

I hope you manage to get everything from your shed without it getting too wet and you have a lovely meditation gathering. 💙

I really like the first picture, that beach looks very peaceful.


Yes. It is very peaceful off season @dedicatedguy. Surprisingly so since it is in the middle of a city! 😊

beautiful scene, the reflection I love, what makes the light in a puddle
Happy day


thank you @txatxy. I think I was very lucky with the light that day. I've tried to take similar photographs since but haven't been able to. 😊

Very nice pictures with great picture compositions.


Thank you @akinome. I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures of my walk. Thanks for visiting. 😊
