“No spring, nor summer beauty hath such grace,
As I have seen in one autumnal face.”

I took these photos on Tuesday’s walk around Greenlake with my friend Ann. It was a perfect, crisp fall morning.  How lucky I am to have such a beautiful park in my neighborhood.

Foggy morning on the Columbia River

“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…”

by Carl Sandburg

The fog came
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
