Ken and I try to go every fall  as it is only a half hour drive and each time we are amazed and in awe of the sights  and sounds  of this beautiful place . We went yesterday early morning and spent the morning gazing and taking photos !!

Lots of wild purple asters and golden rod  in the fields and at the edges of the cliffs where lots of butterfly’s and bees gather . The weather was perfect , sunny with cool breezes ! This year I didn’t see as many Monarch's there  as last year !

But the sights and sounds were still wonderful of the nature that was there and the sounds of the water gently slapping  and swishing on the  shore !

From My Kitchen Window

 

I see a lot from my kitchen window  like this little guy I saw whilst I was preparing our supper in the slow cooker for the day  .

SEPTEMBER 2014 (12 of 16)

He was very interested in watching me from the outside of my kitchen window as he popped down every now and then to have a drink from his feeder then back up to see what I was doing !

SEPTEMBER 2014 (9 of 16)

I had to get my camera in hopes he would still be there and he was . I think he was even striking a few poses for me !  The lighting was on and off as the sun hid behind clouds every now and then !
