Traipsing

This weekend, we went for a couple of mini-hikes around Richmond.

Camera in purse, I didn't want to miss the opportunity for some nice shots before the leaves all fall.
My little brother took us around to some spots he knew, such as Belle Isle, where the water was a little too high to get more that 200 feet along the path.
(that's what happens when it rains heavily for a WEEK. Another result is that I'm still lovin up the sun, three days in to blue skies...)
Ward (my little brother, who's now much bigger than me. It's weird) was a trail blazer, checking out all of the soggy paths for me before I went forward. My shoe choice was not all that intelligent - loafers that squelch if I look at a puddle...
But, while resting, we did end up getting a shot or two for the signing book at the wedding.
Then, yesterday, we went to Maymont just to take pics for that reason and got just about nothin. Oh well, we'll try it again later this week.
Until then, I'll be working away, wishing I was closer to the blue skies than on the other side of a pane of glass, tethered to my laptop...
