A THERAPEUTIC WALK

Nothing like a nice long walk in beautiful surroundings, in the company of a good friend, to alter one's mood and create a change in perspective.

As we set out, the sky was as blue as blue can be.  Not a cloud to be seen.  Nothing but a whispy moon.

We enjoyed the fall colors along the way...


...and did a double take when we came upon these mushrooms.  Neither one of us had ever seen this kind before.  Do any of you know what they are? 

There were many quaint mailboxes... 




















...a roaring lion and a little stream...










...and we walked past some landmarks, like this old building (on the left) that once housed the local theatre.




On one street, we  passed a fenced in yard full of the most beautiful morning glories, as well as a couple of homes all decorated for the season.













This clothesline was an unusual sight that brought back memories of days gone by.


On the way back, we were greeted by a Droid pointing cars to the Verizon store up the hill.


 

 A cat followed us for part of the way.




I noticed that one of my favorite trees in town was sporting a new haircut, and wondered why anyone would have thought to do that. 

The last few pictures are of a hardy tomato, an interesting reflection on a garage door, and the bug that greeted me when I got home--exhausted, but in a much better frame of mind than when I first started out.
