I am sitting in the plane taking me to the Red Sea in Egypt. This afternoon I will be there, enjoying the beautiful hotel, the very good food and the warm weather and sunshine.

Autumn and winter is just not my season, it makes me moody and depressed.

Waterloo's Lion is hiding behind naked trees

it's dark and humid

it rains

and the stripteasing trees make a mess !

When I come back I hope I will run again like a car, the tank full of petrol, to be prepared for Christmas ! For the moment I don't enjoy Christmas decorations and preparations at all !

Next time I will be blogging from my little tea room/cafĂ© in the hotel  !

And for those who are worried that I dare to go to Egypt, I can tell them it is not dangerous at all where I am going !

That sounds like a fun break, going off where it is warm and sunny. I find the cold and bleakness of fall and winter a little depressing too. Interesting fall scenes! I imagine you will be working hard when you get back, it always snowballs on me anyway, so much to do.

That's so typically Central European, a public leaf-bin on the streets...!... Our local councils would NEVER stretch to something as orderly and useful as that!!

I hope you have a wonderful trip and come back refreshed. I love the photograph with the rain droplets on the windshield. The basket of leaves was interesting (and rather beautiful) as we wouldn't see such a thing here in Vancouver.
