Fall – My Favorite Season

To me there is no more beautiful a season than Fall or Autumn. Even as a young boy, the beginnings of winter always appealed to me when we used to go to the banks of the River Humber to celebrate Guy Fawlkes night. There is something about it – the colors, the smell of dampness and the coming cold, the leaves heaped in piles and blowing in the wind, the fog that often occurs at this time of year…..

With that in mind, we set out this weekend to tour a bit of south Bohemia here in the Czech Republic with stops in Jindrichuv Hradec and Ceske Kromlov being particularly spectacular. We were blessed with almost perfect weather – foggy mornings and sunny days – and sitting on a boat touring the world in Trebon (the Lake there is called the World in Czech!), I could actually feel my face burning in the sun! It was one of those weekends were you drag yourself reluctantly home knowing that the weather couldn’t last and neither would the wallet.

Here are one or two selected photos to demonstrate what I mean about this the most beautiful part of the year….
