Another hotter-than-it-should-be day today with bright sun and blue skies called us out to do some more fall colour admiring (all the more so it seems we are now in for several wet days which will probably cause most of the leaves to fall off the trees). This time we went to the two nature parks at Anse-à l’Orme and Cap-St-Jacques and managed to see a few birds as well … we took a lot of pictures, as one does at this time of year, but culled them down to, well, still quite a number … hence they are in the form of captioned thumbnails below. Just click any one that appeals to you and a slide show will open up.

Gorgeous time of year … though reality (and a marketing email from our garage yesterday) tell us that winter is coming and winter tires need to be put on the car before too long. Also noted in the last day or two that the long distance forecast for the winter ahead is for rather more snow than we have been used to in recent years … and as we always get plenty of the white stuff anyway, who know what lies in store.
