Trying to find my car which was parked somewhere – I was only vaguely familiar with the neighborhood and couldn’t remember exactly where I had parked the car in my rush to get to the start line and registration.

The climb back up to the start (and the car) after walking the 5K to get to the finish.
Good companions on the walk
Still smiling on the walk – feeling cosy in my dragon hat (the closest I could get to a turkey)
Approximately 1/3 of the way along.
I don’t seem to have a photo of the 7000 eager runners, trotters, walkers and dogs just before the start. Another comment – it was a reasonable day for doing this caper. I did it 4 years ago – a challenge then and a challenge this year but lots of fun and hopefully it will be a nice day next year and I can do it again.
Time to get out the scarves – here our some samples – hand knit by yours truly.
I’m lining up the last of the blooms and taking pots inside so as not to lose any to frost. We still have lots of birds and I can keep feeding them. And there are plenty of fallen leaves to collect.
The leaves were falling and the little brown birds were hatter away and fling from branch to branch. Quite a noisy display but all too quick for my simple camera/phone.

Postcard from Norway – just to look at this view makes me feel cold – and bleak. It’s a color card but you would think it was black and white.
Not quite so cold – the summer clothing worn by the figures in the foreground give some warmth Hilsen Fra Nordland = Greetings from Nordland (a region in the far North of Norway)
