A Photo A Day For 6 Months: Day 168~ An Cool Autumnal Afternoon
"I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house."
Yesterday, Alan and I spent the day in Pacific Grove, at the Monarch Sanctuary. There weren't as many monarchs as I have seen in previous autumns, but I was happy to spend time with the ones we found there. It was a cool afternoon, so they weren't moving about the trees as much, which made it easier to photograph them. Once the sun did come out, there were large clusters at the tops of the trees moving in and out of the branches. It made for a pleasant afternoon, in one of the most beautiful areas in California. Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel... HEAVEN ON EARTH.

"Autumn that year painted the countryside in vivid shades of scarlet, saffron and russet, and the days were clear and crisp under harvest skies."
