walking across the brooklynn bridge during a rain storm we learned that the umbrellas you can buy at the entrance to the bridge are not worth the five dollars we paid for ours, by the time we got to the middle of the bridge and it began to rain the umbrella instantly fell apart in the wind and we were soaked in a few seconds.  after the storm it was a cold, wet walk home to take the commuter ferry back to our “campground” in jersey city.

a small detour back up to ontario, stopped in toronto to visit family and friends and cross off going to a paul mccartney concert off the bucket list.  as we headed home the fall colour was gorgeous.

no reds in the fall colour this year but the yellow tones, subtle or intense, are all beautiful.
