Seven for Sunday

... even though it's Monday.

I took a long drive yesterday after lunch along winding country roads dotted with little white churches. The sun shown intermittently through the trees while the breeze blew spent, though colorful, leaves from the trees. It was kinda dreamy.

Here's some of what I encountered...

We still have a way to go before we reach peak color...

These four horses were happily grazing, though all were interested in what I was up to.

A bit of sunshine and blue sky could have made this a "Wow" shot, in my opinion.

I ended up all the way to Monroe County, TN, traveling the Cherohala Skyway. I believe this is the Tellico River.

This is Bald River Falls. A 100 foot drop.

The bridge where the peepers are located is from where you view the waterfall.

And this is 10-week old Marley with his human, Lucas.
"Aw." I said. "Named after the dog in Marley and Me?"
His response, "No, named after Bob Marley." Oh.

It was a nice day... and now we're back to rain, rain, rain!

Awww...shucks. You have such gorgeous colors all around you! Here, we have varying tones of grey and brown, until it snows. Then it is grey, brown and white. I'm soaking up the pretty from your pictures!

(Marley is cute! I love that the name didn't come from the movie...although we have a cat named "Figaro" after the kitten in Pinnochio.)

Of course the dog was named after Bob Marley, couldn't you tell he was Jamaican? :-D
