Walking along the river
The other day v and I took a wintery walk along the Little Sur river in Big Sur. The sycamore trees still have most of their leaves, but they've finally turned to rust and bright yellow. That warm autumn we enjoyed delayed the visible changes of the seasons. My mood, however, drew me to the blue-greens of the cedars and the redwoods. After all, this is December and evergreens are the stars of the moment.
Despite the recent rains the river isn't running high at the moment. It makes for a more contemplative walk. We don't have white Christmases here, they're more of a mossy green and gray. It's cold enough, though, to appreciate a cozy cafe and a hot cup of tea or coffee at the end of the day. And warm, thick socks with slippers.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
