Hatley Castle Autumn

I went out today bent on capturing some autumn color and I got enough for several days posts. I'll ease into it with a photo of a place we've seen before, back in June, Hatley Castle. That other photo was the opposite side of the castle. Here we see the seaward side of it from across Esquimalt Lagoon. And yes, that is a swan, a Mute Swan to be precise, one of a flock whose ancestors escaped from Beacon Hill Park in ages past.

You just live in a little fantasy up there, don't you. O, Canada! (I'm practicing for my citizenship).

You've got enough fall colour for several days shots in thei pic Benjamin.

Does it seem to you that fall is running a little late this year?

Elaine, only Victorians live in fantasy land. The rest of us are normal.

I’ve always assumed that a swan + castle = dinner.

Or maybe that’s peacocks...

Wayne, depending on the results of next week's election, I may be coming up for a "visit" sooner rather than later.
