It was still early morning, not a lot of people around, just me, and those wonderful fall colours. At first it felt a bit strange to walk around all by myself in this big park. I had a few hours to kill and I wondered if I would manage to do that here. Maybe I should consider going somewhere else after my walk? The rain was softly ticking on my umbrella, just enough to give a nice cosy sound, but not too much rain for it to be bothersome.....

The strange feeling of being alone in this big park didn't stay long..... I looked around me, a deep breath of air.... the smell of the forest, that always seems to come alive more after some rain, made me smile. The fresh air on my cheeks, a bit cold, but not too cold, but enough to wrap my shawl a bit more around me to stay nice and warm. Looking around and seeing the golden colours of the leaves, sometimes in tones of red and brown. A breeze of wind, some leaves swirl down to the ground. The feel of autumn, and all this, this wonderful show of nature, just for me. I walked through the woods until the landscape opened up and I saw this large green lawn, bordered by old trees, you know those ones with 'character', like only the old trees seem to have. It felt good and I was happy to be here. Imagine this park in summer, spring or winter... all seasons have their own character and I think I would love this place any time of year. I walked on, and there on the left hand side I saw the building that made me want to go here in the first place......
