Dateline: Cattaraugus County, western New York state
After six weeks in England and France - on which more later, we came back to a wonderful autumn.
A few days of bright blue skies, warmth and gorgeous colours. Leaves falling like golden snow and a Byzantine mosaic covering the ground.
Suddenly, at the weekend, it turned cold, biting cold. Well not exactly winter cold but for us, now too used to Florida, quite cold enough. Time to pack. Ready for another road trip for me, another flight for hubby. But wherever I am, I'm always sorry to leave.
