THINKING OF OUR CRUISE

Last summer we had taken a cruise to Alaska. We started our journey in Seattle on a really beautiful day. Was not what I had thought being my first time to Seattle. I expected rainy and grey and there wan’t one cloud in the sky.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE DEDICATED MARTINI BAR

This shot was taken just shortly after boarding the Rotterdam cruise ship in August of 2010. We boarded in Seattle and headed up to Alaska for 7 days. It was a great trip with unbelievable views that you can only get from the water.

I’m not too sure what to say about this shot other than I was eager to cruise, no pun intended, around the ship before the masses engulfed the ship and cluttered every shot taken. This was a martini bar that was all set up and not a soul had touched it just yet. I was able to take my time and compose the shot without feeling rushed.

I sure hope you all are enjoying the photos I’ve posted so far.

A DAY IN LONDON TOWN

After spending a few days out in Wales we planned to have one day in London before hopping on another plane to Germany. The day was gorgeous and pretty warm. We left early morning to drive back to the Heathrow airport to drop our car off and check into our hotel to drop our multitude of baggage off. Next we hopped on the Tube downtown and got off at the Tower Station. Did a bit of walking around and checking out the sites before hopping on a Thames ferry to the London Eye for a scenic ride.

TODAY’S PHOTO – I SPY THE LONDON EYE

This thing is cool! Well, it was pretty warm inside I have to admit, but the views are breathtaking and awesome. You can literally see for miles and can many landmarks are within view. Just below right you can see the Houses of Parliament and behind that in the distance is the Battersea Power Station. This is not your ordinary Ferris wheel. It’s huge and high, and the ride around once takes about 30 minutes. Well worth the time if you have it. I do suggest prebooking a ‘flight’, as they call it, to save from standing in line for several hours.

Enjoy!

SUMMER RAINS

Well, I thought I’d start riding to work on my bike this week. Got the first one in the other day and was jazzed to go again the next day just to wake up to rain and wet pavement. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really fancy riding in the cold and wet. At least not to work with a laptop strapped to my back. Maybe on a proper trail ride with something hot waiting at the finish line.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE OLD REAPER

Today’s photo was shot a few years ago at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. About 50 feet to the left is a a 700 foot drop off to the Atlantic! As you can see, it was an amazingly gorgeous day out. It didn’t rain all day and everywhere I drove along the coast people were having picnics, playing outside and whenever I saw a beach it had people out and even in the water. Was really a great day.

Well, I know a lot of you are looking at my posts as I’ve been checking out the statistics. Who’s going to be the first commenter? I’d love to start getting your comments and feedback.What would you like to see? I’ll be off to Chicago in about a weeks time and plan to do an insanely early Father’s Day morning walk downtown to get the sunrise if possible. Weather permitting of course. Will keep you updated.

SEAGULLS STARING

Seagulls Staring Out to Sea

Seagulls were in multitudes on Capitola beach in California this one August morning. Capitola is a little town just south of the more famous Santa Cruz which is just north by about 10 minutes.

This young one was just staring out at the open ocean taking a break from the busy chatter going on around it. We hadn’t been to the ocean in a while being that we had moved off to Colorado so it was great to feel the offshore breeze again. I definitely need a taste of the ocean at least once a year if I can manage it.
