I am posting this early as I will be away in a few days so Jake has strict instructions to upload this post to the link on Kathy’s blog so you can all see it. Most of these pics were taken in Spain again. This completes a year of taking pics for the Scavenger Hunt and I am still really enjoying it, I love taking pics and get very excited when I get something good for one of the words!
Lots of the Spanish houses have beautiful ceramic house number tiles so here is a number 5 from my street.
This is on one of the roads I cycle along in Spain, the local council have recently fenced the road and painted the fence in multicoloured blocks with lots of musical notes along it, no-one seems to know why this feature has been chosen but it looks very pretty.
Not strictly a train but a train track and station. I took a couple of quite boring train pics which I was planning to use then came across this model railway on one of my cycle trips in Spain which was in someone’s front garden! It was a large layout about 10 feet in total with a little model village as well as this train station. I can only imagine the owner has a very understanding wife!
This was really hard as there are so many things that I love, my kids, my family, Spain, camping, travel, embroidery but I decided that I would post about something I have not posted before. The first thing I fell in love with would have to be reading and I still think books are the most marvellous thing. One of the great things about being on holiday is the amount of reading I do and this was the pile of literary love that I treated myself to at the airport – they were wonderful and I read the whole pile in 3 days!
This was the only Cupid I saw in the whole month, not a very good pic but from a local shop window.
Sandwiches Spanish style – the lunch that Mum and I shared on our trip to Elche.
The road down to the beach on one of my cycle rides.
In the sky
Nothing but blue! Taken from my terrace on Feb 13th.
A picture of a crowded lemon tree taken on one of my bike rides.
How spectacular is this – the front door of the cathedral in Elche.
Black and White
The Spanish love ironwork on gates and balconies and this is from one of the neighbouring houses.
This is quite a boring pic but a very exciting event – on the 29th Feb Leap Year Day I will be flying to China for nearly 3 weeks with work. I am very, very excited as you can imagine and will of course take lots and lots of more exciting pics than this one!
