The last hurrah

There's the Final Four of the season. The watermelons were lots of fun this year-- tasty, too.

C'mon over and catch some rays while lazing in the hammock.

All your wishes come true here at the river on a sunny Autumn day.

Down to the river

2008 Oct

A quick tour down the neighbors' path (watch carefully as we swing by the new cottage).
We continue down to the river.

Next, travel along as we go abreast of the river, upstream.
Our tour ends as we pass by the picnic bench and end up at the garden cottage

(This is a video tour; you'll need to double-click on the picture to the right of the neighbors' path to start your tour. You'll be transported over to Picasa Web Albums.  Or, you can use this link)

Beyond the path ...

So you've crossed the bridge and headed to the river's edge.  
You can sit on these steps and watch the tiny fish swimming in the shallow water.
If you're a kitten, you can step down to the water until your paw gets wet-- look surprised-- and shake it vigorously.

Looking downriver.  
(click for full-size)
Notice the "island" covered with young trees.  Just a short while ago, this was barely an island; it's since filled in completely to the riverbank (on your right).

Looking up the river. What do you see?  Look carefully.  There's always something to see.

Did you miss the blue heron flying lazily, wings outstretched, as he cruised down the river past you?

Can you see any beavers?  They live near that cluster of trees that floated along and are now abreast of the island (almost dead-center in the picture).

The water is calm and so clear.  Hope you feel the same.

Leaves on the path

Autumn at the River is almost as great as summer.

Another early morning

Our favorite time at the River is in the early morning . ..

... and midday and in the evening and in the middle of the night when you can see the stars so clearly.

The Garden Cottage grows up

Now there's a roof & a wall.

Come back again soon!
