It's mid-October, it's beginning to get cold and the days are shortening fast. We went to the Lock Keepers Inn on Saturday morning (the 16th) with the folks for a cuppa, then walked from there up to Shaw's Bridge to the playpark. The trees are amazing, and I got a couple of nice shots (which aren't online yet). Washed the car in the afternoon (always fun with the three year old), and watched the new Channel 4 thing The Pillars of the Earth. Not awful, but not really great either.
