|Summer rains bring a welcome relief from the heat. Think this little butterfly got more than just a drink!|
|Oh those hibs are sweet! Gotta drink up before the cold weather comes.|
|Sleepy bee - I could almost pet him. Fall must be approaching|
|Fall flowers come into their own|
|Kids back at school: we're all in our places with bright shiny faces!|
|Now what does this have to do with anything? |
An elderly man and young Chinese lady walked by my bench, down some stone steps and on to another bench closer to the water (the one you see in the pic).
I wondered what their relationship was.
Elderly gent and his caretaker? Probably. But there seemed to be such a difference in age. Maybe she was a great-granddaughter and one of her parents was Oriental.
I watched their body language for a bit and saw that they were quite comfortable with each other. As unobtrusively as possible, I snapped this photo. Unfortunately her head whipped around at the sound of my camera, and I immediately shifted position to snap the one you see above of the boats. That's why it's not very good, but I was trying to pretend I had no interest in her or her companion and was randomly taking pics on a beautiful sunny morning.
After a while, they rose to go. I wondered if she would glare at me as they passed my bench. Or come right out and ask if I'd taken their pic. I deliberated and then figured that if it was a big deal, I'd just delete the pics.
Really - sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.
They both smiled as they approached my bench and we had a good chat.
Elderly gent and sweet young caretaker. Out walking and taking in the unusually warm autumn day. I hope we have more of these lovely days before the cold sets in.
