Late Afternoon Walk Through the Last of Autumn’s Bright Glory

Thurs. 11.14.19 – One of my favorite things to do when I am visiting London is to take a long walk in the park(s) every day. If it is warm, I will only walk through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, but if it is cold I will keep walking through Green Park to St. James’ Park. If I go the whole way to the far end of St. James’ Park, it is 2.47 miles one way and my fitbit is nearly ready to have a fireworks party.

I don’t find this walk boring, as the plants, trees, and animals are always up to something new, and the people are good to observe as well. I will listen to music, or a podcast, or take the earbuds out and listen to all the sounds in the park and the roads near by.

I have several favorite year around trees, but in early spring and late autumn there a few trees that go all out. The above trees and clouds are winning for the mid-November 2019 autumn finale spectacle.

An Autumn Afternoon Walk at Irvine Regional Park

Fri 11.21.14 – This afternoon Scruffy, Belle, and I went on a walk at Irvine Regional Park in Orange to have the opportunity to enjoy the very brief spurt of autumn weather we are having and to possibly see some trees in their fall glory. It was lovely, the air was crisp-ish, the park was fairly empty of people, and the dogs had a great time sniffing all the smells.

Sat 09.04.10 – This afternoon Julie Wanda, Wes, and I went to the annual Labor Day weekend Orange International Street Fair. Per the usual, the weekend of the Street Fair is/was the hottest weekend of the summer. It was 72F degrees when I left Seal Beach, 86F at Julie Wanda’s house, and in the 90s when we were out at Street Fair. Dang it was hot.
We wandered around all four streets plus the Orange Circle, said hello to Dave Mau, and watched the Altar Billies, before the heat got to be too much. Upon arriving at the car, it was 97F and we drove back to Julie Wanda’s to enjoy the air conditioning. Living in Seal Beach has made me even more of a temperature wimp than I was before.
