"There is something in October that sets the gypsy blood astir: We must rise and follow her, when from ever hill of flame she calls, and calls each vagabond by name."
Yesterday was October 1st. That is a big day in our house, because it begins our vacation month! This year I have Alan home for 37 days! And it will take just about that long to do all we have planned! All the gorgeous coastal scenery to be seen. All that time, to spend leisurely on the San Francisco Bay, and all the leap peeping in the far northern counties of California! Not to mention our Wedding Anniversary on the 13th, Family Day on the 23rd, and Halloween, our favorite holiday, on October 31st!
And how did we spend yesterday?
Glad you asked...
Walking among autumn of course! :) Playing with an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) butterfly! Well, chasing, actually, for at least part of the day! We also visited the Legion Of Honor museum, in San Francisco, but I will save that for a different post!
