We are not going too far from The Humble Bungalow, and we are going to wander through a historic heritage cemetery...
Heritage trees create a lovely canopy
their leaves are turning autumnal shades and leaves crunch underfoot.

The cemetery is quiet and there are benches dotted along the paths for sitting
people walk through here often
and some bring their picnic lunches.
It has a parklike feel despite the fact that it is a graveyard.
Many squirrels scampered about
and there was a symphonic cacophony of song from the birds.
Days with little wind are few and far between here
because of the proximity to the ocean.
The seafront is across the road from the cemetery.
After a snowfall this place is hushed in quiet and is pure magic.
I'll try to come back in the snow and show you how lovely the trees look wearing a coat of white.
The headstones and crosses look frothy with the snow swirling and licking at their feet.
But I am rushing the season when speaking of winter
fall has arrived with it's multi-coloured coat
with hues of umber, ochre, russet and mustard.
I am enjoying these new shades
and will show you in upcoming posts some garments that I will be wearing.
