Autumn is here. A few trees are changing their leaves, though there still aren't enough of them around to preventing me from really missing October in the Midwest.
There is nothing like packing a light lunch in a sandwich bag and going out for a hike along Katy Trail in NW Missouri this time of year... when there isn't a twister in the forecast, that is!
At any rate, autumn on the Pacific Coast has charms all its own, too, crunchy surf is one of them. I took a little trip up to Solana Beach a few miles north of here over the weekend (sort of a reward after all the moving), and came away with a few beach photos. The music used in the clip is 'Le porte bonheur (The Lucky Charm)' by La grande Sophie. I don't know exactly how grand she is in real life, but she sure rocks on my stereo!
