Welcome to Autumn

Posted Sep 22 2012, 9:10 pm in , , , , ,

Today is the first day of autumn. For many people, fall is their favorite season, but fall makes me a little sad because it means the end to summer—my favorite season. However, now that I live in Florida, I’m not quite as sad because we never get snow during our autumn, but it does mean that the water in the pool is sometimes too cold for swimming unless I want to run up the electric bill to heat it. This summer I didn’t have as much time to swim or walk on the beach, so the end of summer hits especially hard this year. I know, I know. I have lots of warm days left to walk on the beach, so I shouldn’t complain.

The only thing I miss about living a little further north is the changing color of the leaves. This year we aren’t going to get to take a trip to see any leaves, but here are a few photos I’ve taken of trips we have made in other years.

What would fall be without college football?

    and a season for every activity under the heavens:” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)

What is your favorite season? Why?

    here in Indonesia, we just have two seasons. the spring and summer rains and I like both. in my place, Jayapura, Papua there is no time limit for single season. we enjoy a balanced heat and rain.

    • Theana, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Sometimes I forget that there are people who read my blog from all over the world. The people in the southern hemisphere are starting spring. The world is a much bigger place now that we can all connect through the internet. Thanks for reminding me about other parts of the world.

  2. Those are beautiful photos. The drawback to living in Florida is not getting the fall colors, but the winters there are a definite plus! Living in North Carolina, fall is my second favorite season because of the beautiful colors. Spring is my favorite.
