On a moonlight morning

Hubby and I woke up last Saturday morning to find the moon still up and seeing as it was going to be a clear day we thought we would head off on our annual trek to Mt Wilson to see the autumn leaves and this year is the most spectacular we have seen the colours in the trees.

We parked the car and walked down shaded  lanes
   And along grassy walk ways
To be amazed at the colours in the trees - particularly the reds

After a few hours of wandering around and admiring the scenery it was time to head home.  What a shock we got when we started heading back down the mountain - there before us was Sydney - no wonder they call it "the big smoke".     The pollution hanging over the city nearly made us turn the car around and head back up the mountain to the peace and freshness of Mt Wilson.

I look forward to returning to Mt Wilson in the spring to enjoy the springtime blossoms.

I have been doing quite a bit of sewing lately and hope to come back soon with some piccies of what I have been finishing off.

In the meantime happy sewing.

Lovely photos! Looks as if Sydney has become a lot more polluted in the 25 years since I left the Western suburbs. The last photo you took I remember the skyline view from there never had a "tide" line between sky and city it was just a bit misty looking. I used to be able to see the top of Centrepoint tower on a clear day!
Cheers, Rob xo
