Seattle Fall Colors

The Pacific Northwest isn’t famous for fall colors but there are still a lot of pretty leaves and colors here.

A few pretty colors are visible from my daughter’s house.

I have been walking down to the shopping area every day to get things for dinner, and to just enjoy being out.

There is a small park just a few blocks from my daughter’s house. It’s only a couple square blocks big but very pretty. If you look closely though, you can see two homeless camps there. The weather has been wet and 50 or less at night, and it’s not even winter yet.

The view across the back yard in the morning can be really pretty. The family has been getting up before sunup so we watch the sun come up while we eat breakfast. Some days have been rainy, some sunny, and some very foggy before the sun is high enough to burn it off.

I have been in a very lazy mode here, watching movies and TV rather than my usual blogging, reading, studying, and other activities. I have been doing some walking, shopping, and cooking while the kids are at work but generally I’m enjoying a change of pace for a little while.

    Love your pictures Kris. We have had snow already so our leaves are gone. Glad to hear you are enjoying the change of pace…that’s what vacation is all about!

    I like the fall colors but really hate the fact that winter’s coming. I wish it was spring that was coming. LOL We still have green leaves on our trees but we haven’t had any cold weather yet, even though it’s cooler than it was a few weeks ago. I hope this niceness holds out for most of Nov, but I doubt it will. Enjoy your vacation.

    Hola Kris,
    The great northwest is famous for its forests. November is our best month for fall in North Texas but it is also the month for our usual first frost so the race is on for seeing autumn colors. Our neighborhood is 60 years old so we have a good variety of tall trees but the best views require a day trip by car (or bike).
    Enjoy the vacation, do or don’t do anything you want, that’s what vacations are for, recharging.
    Oh, and keep posting photos! 😆

    • The forests here are really beautiful but the pine trees don’t offer fall colors. You don’t think of Texas being a fall colors place either so how nice that you get to enjoy that too.
      I’m on permanent vacation so I don’t know why I need a vacation but the change of pace is nice, and of course it’s wonderful to have time with family and the little ones.

  4. The best part for you is you do not have to rake up all the leaves!
