Autumn bliss


After a wonderful cycle ride through the colourful trees in the countryside north of London, I regret  not taking any pictures. Nature presented itself fantasticly; Beautifully coloured leaves and trees; some autumn flowers; we saw cows, goats, rabbits, horses and and beautiful birds, singing. It was very peaceful and quiet with just nature’s voices.



We stopped near the canal in a picturesque town and watched houseboats go through the lock, chatted with the owners and then headed back through the woods.

It seems every year nature shows a new miracle when the season changes and we can only notice it and appreciate it by going out and look for its beauty.

Inhale the fresh air and feel alive!



Enjoy this Autumn!
