Autumn is not really my favorite season. I see it as a gateway to winter and, for someone who does not like the cold, the rain and the darkness, it is bad. Really bad…
Despite knowing what’s coming, despite my prejudices, I always try to have a positive approach to the season. I figure I might as well as there is no avoiding the inevitable (very positive, you see!!!;-)). Now, in my defense, the Irish weather does not help.
Here in Ireland we don’t usually get those dry beautiful autumnal days that you see in photos. They tend to be more of the wet and windy variety rather than the beautiful and crisp dry, sunny days. Until this year.
This year we are having the most gorgeous autumnal days – sunny, dry and dare I say it even warm! The kind of days that make you get out the door for walks.
I am starting to get why people like autumn.
So few days ago we went to one of those famous autumnal walks that people talk about but we rarely (as in never) do. And it was glorious!!!
We are extremely fortunate to have amazing walks right on our door step – just put on your walking shoes and get walking!
A clean path, beautiful nature, the river, family… the simple life!
I am liking this type of Autumn.
Can I keep it?
