To access the fiction short, which introduces a new character to Gray and Cooper’s world, go here. Everyone should be able to see it, and those who follow me on Facebook already have.
Mid-week, I dropped everything and drove eighty miles north to visit my friend from Florida, who is here only a short time before returning home. Fall has begun up there already!
These blazing red trees are on his property, but it’s so heavily wooded, we had to drive out to the road to get the shot.
On the way home, Suki and I took the scenic route, going through Stillwater. Just north of that river town is a wayside rest, and there is a path that takes you across a short bridge and down a short flight of stairs to the water.
The sun was blazing, as it was high noon, but there was a brisk breeze to keep me cool as we tramped around. I got there in time to see a paddleboat on the St Croix make its turn; apparently, this is as far downriver as it can go right now. What luck, eh? You can see a bit of color on the opposite shore, but it will be much better in a couple of weeks. We need a hard frost to coax those fall colors out.
Suki met a couple of kids on the beach and ran around with them a while. She had a terrific time. You will meet them in the next post.
Left of the beach as you face the river was a wonderful walking trail.
And along the trail, around the curve, is a cave; we accessed it from the beach. I love caves, don’t you? This one has been blocked off at the back to prevent people from getting hurt or lost (I’ll show it to you next time), but the view from the entrance is pretty good.
I stopped here on impulse. I am so glad I did. 🙂
Have a great weekend. I will be finishing a freelance edit and then jumping into final revisions for Transgression.
