A Quick Post With Trees

We had kind of a "do nothing" day today. After the usual morning routine...1 hour walk, shower, dress, walk Annie again....we ate oatmeal for breakfast. Then after that we needed to make a quick trip to Home Depot and Costco.

Over at Costco, the trees in the parking lot were turning a beautiful shade of red from their summer green. Pretty amazing for right here in little old Tumwater. We have better color displays if you venture out into the countryside, but we didn't feel like taking the trip as it was beginning to rain. This Costco store is right across the street from our current RV park.

Down by the Home Depot store, about 1/4 mile from Costco, we saw these nice looking trees. These are nothing like you can see in parts of the mid-west or New England to be sure....but it sure beats the pants off anything we had down in Southern California when we lived down there. Palm trees don't change colors!

It continued to rain lightly off and on all day. Overcast sky and sort of a ho-hum day. I think we'll head over to McDonald's and get a nice cup of hot coffee. Maybe we'll take our books and even sit long enough to get that free refill. It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.
Until next long for now!

The Pacific Northwest does have some beautiful fall color. We spent a few autumns near Portland, OR, and had great color. Thanks for sharing your Tumwater version, in a quiet, laid-back post.

Great pics of those trees, Margie. Ours are just beginning to turn now so I'm hoping I can get some great pics like yours soon.
