A perfect autumn day

Tuesday, 27 October 2015


What sums up autumn for you? For me, as long as there's pumpkin cake, chilly walks on the beach, candles and evenings in front of the fire, I'm happy.

One of our favourite places to visit at this time of year is a local fruit picking farm, which fully embraces the Halloween season with pumpkin picking and carving, broomstick making and a maize maze. We go every year and it's a great way to get into the spirit.

This year we went to choose our pumpkins and spend the day playing outside on the hay bales and in the maze. We also managed to squeeze in a early morning walk on the beach with the dog. 

Days like that are the ones I remember. Nothing too complicated, just time with my lovely family.

  1. Nothing more fun to do in autumn than playing outside with the dry leaves and laughter of little ones. I hope my girlie starts walking soon so we don't miss the opportunity this year!

  2. Looks like a magical day walking on the beach. I love the sea and the beach all year round, but rarely get to go outside the summer.

  4. I used to love sitting in front of our fire when the weather got colder and nights darker but it now means moving all the plastic toys piled up in front otherwise there will be a mountain of melted plastic! Looks lovely walking on the beach.

  5. I love the autumn, the colours are beautiful and nothing beats getting cosy in front of the TV. Do you know, I haven't been to a pumpkin patch though

  6. I've never picked our own pumpkins but I think it would be great fun. Love the colours of Autumn and kicking leaves.

  7. I love the beach most in the colder weather, cos it's always way less crowded. It's great to take the dog for a long walk and soak up the atmoshphere!

  8. Autumn is definitely my favourite season. The colours, the fashion, the weather. I love going to the beach when it's cold, I think it's so beautiful with the low sunshine! I really want to go pumpkin picking, but I don't think there is anywhere local to us! xx

  9. What a lovely post, so simple but captures the essence of autumn perfectly. I much prefer the beach during the cold months, maybe because it feels like more of a treat to be there! The Two Darlings
