I recently returned from a wonderful trip to Seattle to spend Thanksgiving with my son and daughter-in-law, Ron and Kerrie Simpson, and their four pets: Nellie, Gracie, Nuggett, and Sneakers.
We had ideal weather…light rain and moderate temperatures. My first full day I was raring to go, and had a nice little nature walk while Kerrie was cleaning up the yard. I got a few good shots of Nellie and Nuggett and Gracie.
Then we wandered down to the woodsy section of the property, and I became enchanted with the beautiful patterns of fallen leaves and the raindrops/moisture that covered everything.
I had some work assignments awaiting me on my return to the Phoenix area, and just yesterday was able to look at the pictures I took.
