Wordless Wednesday, Outdoor Wednesday and Waterside Wednesday

Just one of many autumn displays seen while out and about this afternoon..
Tomorrow will be more like this..

..I'll wake up to this scene going out to get my morning newspaper..

and this.. looking towards the Denver skyline..

..and in higher elevations.. the Continental Divide..

while desperately wishing for this!!

and maybe a bit of this... scoot on over to Jens Wednesday Words Susan's Outdoor Wednesday  and Barb's Waterside Wednesday  to see all the other participating posts..
 I think the furbabies and I will just "Let it Snow".. while we snuggle for another forty winks!
Have a beautiful day wherever you are..♥


  1. Hi Lou
    Looks like you traded one kind of beauty for another. I remember our travels through Colorado with fond memories. It was late summer and I was stunned by the beauty of the mountains. I've never strayed far from the water, so it was a pleasant surprise to experience another kind of landscape that also gave me that sense of peace that comes from being in a place so much bigger than you. I'll visit often. Thanks for letting me know you're out there.

  2. The beauty of Colorado is awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits there and would love to return...for a visit. (I saw my first snow July!)

    I love the mountains, too. When living in Tennessee, I would often drive into the Smokies...or even just a street away so I could view the mountains from this ridge...and I would immediately feel calmed. But I have to admit, I am a water person.
    I am so happy to be back in Florida, near the coast. But I know, even a lake will work its magic on me.

  3. Hi Loui, your pictures are amazing!

    Barb ♥

  4. Thanks ladies..
    and yes.. it is STILL snowing..
    wet sloppy snow..should be totally gone by tomorrow,,
    the furbabies are frisky and romping all over the place.. each have at one time or another hopped up to the window sill to watch the snow falling....we are seriously thinking about a few winks of cat naps..♥

  5. Snow..., oh no, not yet. Right now it's beautiful sunshine here in Southern New England and I enjoy every minute of it.

  6. Have a cup of hot cider for me!♥

  7. Oh, brrrr.... that snow looks so cold! I don't blame you for wishing to be on the beach. I heard that some CO ski resorts are already open. So early! Pretty photos!


  8. Robin..
    this is the Second real snow..
    Loveland opened the 1st week of October..
    the earliest opening in 40 years.. most are now open..unfortunately..I prefer to WATERski..that is at least somewhat warmer for my taste!
    ♥smiles.. Loui

  9. What lovely photos. Thanks for sharing them with us today. I hope you are having a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday.

  10. I am Mary..
    just relaxing and watching the snow falling..
    glad you enjoyed the photos..
    I had fun taking them!

  11. Hi Loui,
    I'm a warm weather/beach girl too, being born and raised in California. But, the color on that tree is just GORGEOUS!
    Hang in there, winter will be over soon!!
    Then, all the people dealing with the oppressive heat will be jealous of YOU!

  12. You're a lucky lady. variety, after all is the spice of life!

  13. Hi Loui-
    No snow here, but I can wait. It's going to be 76 tomorrow and I love it! But your mountains views are breathtaking.

  14. Beautiful photos. Hard to imagine snow though!

  15. Love the fabulous photos! The mountains are beautiful! I miss the snow, don't get much here in SF bay area. Enjoy!


  16. Lou, thanks for visiting, love that sandy shot of the beach. I needed a warm sand, and even warmer water shot to chase away the gloom today.


  17. To all..
    thanks for stopping is ALWAYS a pleasure to visit your worlds..and even more fun when you stop in to see and enjoy mine!!!
    ♥warm hugs,big smiles and sand covered toes!!!

  18. What beautiful scenery. The scarecrow on the hale bales is adorable. We've had rain and wind all week long here. It is so nice to meet you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Thank you for swinging my blog, leaving a comment and your entry for the basket give away. I wish you all the luck in the world. hugs ~lynne~


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
