Finlayson Arm Oct 2 2011

You can see the mist and clouds rolling in.  This picture was taken on Highway 1 going north on Vancouver Island.

October in Victoria BC

Autumn has arrived here  and all the Maple leaves are falling to the ground.  The beautiful colors or red, orange , green and yellow,  add a rainbow of color to the green vibrant grass. This is in contrast to the grey sky,   with clouds rolling in from the Pacific Ocean.   The pumpkin patches can be seen in the farmers field,  with row upon on row of pumpkins.  Children will visit the farms   before Halloween Oct 31   and choose a pumpkin to take home and carve.  We have put away all our summer furniture, raked leaves and cut our grass for the last time before spring.
