Title: The Places We've Been vol. 2 - Pictures from Abroad and Travelogues
Post by: ingmarnicebbmt on February 28, 2015, 05:59:43 AM


Hello fellow DCF members, dear friends,

welcome to the second edition of

"The Places We've Been."

As before, the purpose of this thread is to serve as a place for you to post pictures of locations that you have been to,  and to give you the opportunity to discuss these locations, and the cultures and customs you observed.

In order to differentiate this thread from "Life Through The Lens", we ask that you follow the rules indicated below:

1.  Pictures should be posted in "sets."
What I mean is this:  If you have one photo of a sunset you took while on vacation in Italy, that pic would fit in the "Life Through The Lens" thread.  However, if it is one of multiple pics of a trip through Italy, then post it here with your other Italy pics.

2.  This is not being set up as a chat thread.  While we do expect there to be discussion of the pics, the pictures should be the focus of the thread.  

3.  While we understand that a number of pics are taken of Brokies on travels, pictures of Brokies should not be in this thread.   They would belong in the "Gatherings" thread.

4.  The pictures posted do not need to be recent pics.  Any pics from any trips you have taken, regardless of the year, are welcome to be posted here.


Also, please remember that any images posted should conform to the forum rules.  No nudity, and all images should be 200KBs or smaller, with dimensions of 480 X 640.

Thank you!

Have fun.


 ;)

And I loved the pictures of ((((you and Mr S.))))

Yesterday we attended the first gay carnival parade in France EVER, here in Nice.


That amazes me
 The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras began in 1979 and I took part. It will be on again next Saturday.  The Auckland Pride Parade was on last Saturday, not sure how long it has been going. It was in the news because for the first time there was an official police contingent. They have been part of the Sydney parade for many years.
I always think of France as more tolerant than Australia. Perhaps they do not need it. The Sydney parade began as a protest against the police breakup of a demonstration the year before. It has progressed far beyond that now and is now a major carnival in the city calendar.

Sounds almost like the equivalent of the Christopher Street Day!

A great reason to make a parade exist, and now it has even become a tradition. Go Australia!

I have never seen the Christopher Street parade. In 1997 I saw parts of the San Francisco Gay Parade. I was there for a conference. However, while much longer than Sydney, it was just people marching with banners not the floats and costumes of Sydney. I was very disappointed.

And I have only seen one Mardi Gras gay parade in my life - in Key West, in 1999.

It was fabulous.

@Brian: I don't consider France as a particularly LGBT-tolerant country. And certainly not these days.
I guess I just think that when I was young and same-sex was illegal in Australia, it had been legal in France for many years. And France now has same sex marriage. We have it here in NZ but not Australia. I was surprised at the opposition to it in France, hardly any in NZ.

Post by: ingmarnicebbmt on February 28, 2015, 12:07:34 PM

Yes the opposition was strong, but now things have calmed down - luckily. Nice (where we live) is actually the city where the most LGBT marriages take or took place (including ours), just after Paris.

I went to Rio Carnival once - in 78, I believe. Made memorable with a hand-in-hand walk back to the hotel along Copa or somewhere. Would that have been Mardi Gras?

Yesterday, during a splendid, sunny and very springtimelike Sunday afternoon the last Nice carnival parade of 2015 took place.

We enjoyed it a lot - of course, it was very different from the gay/queer carnival two days earlier, and it wasn't a night show.


The colours are wonderful, you'll see.

We were a bit nostalgic, since this was probably our last carnival parade altogether - since we are leaving Nice in a couple of weeks.



enjoy!

Oh yes, there were many. But they were sitting / standing on the lower platforms or marching.

Since I was standing away from the parade with some distance, I could only zoom in the giant heads. Also, I wanted to avoid the crowds - I didn't want blurry snapshots - way too much movement if you try to take pics through hundreds of watching people.

Here's some info for you.

Kiss (more often styled as KISS) is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.  Well known for its members' face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid to late 1970s with their elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits and pyrotechnics.  Before arriving at their current lineup, the band went through some lineup changes, with Stanley and Simmons the last two members of the original lineup of the band.  Counting the 1978 solo albums, Kiss has been awarded 28 gold albums to date, the most of any American rock band.  The band has sold more than 40 million albums in the United States, of which 24 million have been certified by the RIAA and their worldwide sales exceeds 100 million records, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time.

Hi Everyone

I am off again, this year to France, Germany and Austria.

I spent 4 nights in Sydney, fortunately in beautiful weather, a few showers on the way to the airport were the only indication of the deluge to come after I departed.  I again made the obligatory ferry trip to Manly and had a lovely lunch with my sister on the waterfront at Circular Quay following a movie set in France which seemed appropriate.

After a night in Dubai, I reached Paris on April 21 and took possession of the apartment where I have now stayed 12 nights.  While different, it is in the same area in the 13th arrondissement where I have now stayed many times and a Navigo decouverte or weekly ticket on the metro, buses and trams allows me to easily move around inner Paris.  The first week had glorious sunny weather but it changed on Saturday and has been rather cool and showery this week.

I planned my whole trip around attending the Anzac Dawn Service at the Australian War Memorial in Villers Bretonneux. There were a few showers as we left by coach from Gare du Nord  at 1.30am but, soon after arriving at the site just before 4am, the deluge began.
I am told about 6000 were there and was impressed that there were many French people at such an hour in such weather. They still respect the Australians who saved the town on April 25, 1918. While the emphasis was on Gallipoli this year, I guess this will move here in 2018.
I was honoured at the end of the service to be able to place flowers and a card from my sister and me in memory of my uncle who is buried nearby, having been killed at Pozieres in June 1916.

We went for breakfast and to dry out. Fortunately the rain did not return as we were taken to the memorials at Pozieres and Bullecourt then, after lunch, to Fromelles and the Cobbers memorial.

I have toured the Somme before but this trip the emphasis was on Australian Memorials rather than those of all the Commonwealth countries.

The days before Anzac were mainly to overcome jet lag but I did wander in some gardens and visit the Picasso Museum, newly reopened, as well as the Museum of Modern Art.

Last Monday I took a long train ride to visit Mont St Michel.

The day was sunny but cold. It was French school holidays so very crowded and the place is over commercialised but the Abbey was interesting and picturesque.

Thursday, another train trip to Normandy and a tour of the American landing beach of Omaha and the war cemetery. There were not enough numbers for a tour of British/Canadian sites but I guess one beach is like another and it was interesting to compare the American Cemetery with the many Commonwealth war cemeteries I have visited.

I have had some musical experiences in the evenings as well. A string quartet in La Chapelle with works by Mozart, Schumann, Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Dvořák was pleasant as the sun set through the magnificent glass windows.  Dvorak’s opera ‘Rusalka’ at the Opera Bastille on Sunday afternoon was lovely and it was wonderful to hear the Orchestre de Paris play at the Paris Philharmonie. Arcadi Volodos was the soloist for Beethoven’s Piano concerto number 3. By coincidence I have now heard that piece 3 times in one year, in New York and Dunedin as well. Fortunately I think it is great music.

The Paris Philharmonie was only opened a few months ago and is the largest concert hall in Europe.  A New Zealand and a Japanese Company were the sound engineers and the acoustics have received rave reviews.  I had a front row seat and this photo taken with my phone gives some idea of the modern design.

An organ recital at Notre Dame Cathedral was less impressive.  Wonderful setting and I discovered the strange sounds an organ can make but the modern music was not to my taste.

Then last night a chamber orchestra in the Church of St Madeleine with a variety of composers. I particularly enjoyed the soprano who sang “Casta Diva” a favourite of mine.

Rather disappointed the weather has not allowed me to wander the streets and parks of Paris as much as I planned. A final photo taken in the Luxembourg Gardens.

Great Brian! Thanks!

I'm glad to see that they have flags of the time in this display. In recent displays of troop movements on maps on TV they frequently substitute the current map, such as the maple leaf flag rather than the red ensign for Canada, which can be quite irritating.

Thanks for comment Fritz. I did not think of Canada and was wondering the other flag with Union Jack (perhaps Fiji but of course ridiculous) Forgot the maple leaf was absent evn though Canada was the thrid major participant.

And of course it's quite proper to have a 48 star American flag, since it didn't change until 1958.

The Barge Cruise That Wasn’t

The rain that I experienced in Paris last week caused flooding of the Yonne.  So, although this week we only had a few showers, the river was too high to allow access to the canal. Therefore our barge, the Luciole, never left the quay at Auxerre.

(https://ultimatebrokebackforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi57.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fg218%2Fbrianr44%2FLuciole%2520at%2520Auxerre_zpsaffkqsrn.jpg&hash=33ca47a7a3cb603e1e4ecd4d62508c3f)

The trip I booked last July and which cost more than all my other 7 weeks of travel in Europe (airfares excepted) was very disappointing.

There were 10 of us on board and we still ate lots of food. Lunches were buffet  plus  2 cheeses and 2 wines and dinners were 3 courses plus 2 cheeses and 2 wines.

On Tuesday a rather long drive to the town of Beaune where we toured the Hotel-Dieu built as a hospital for the poor in 1443 and was then well ahead of its time. This was extra to the normal program and included a 3 course meal plus cheese in a restaurant.

In the afternoon a few of us visited an archaeological site of old Roman ruins. This was another add on and much more interesting than I expected.  Afterwards I walked along the first part of the canal we did not take and took this photo.

A cooking class, colour consultant and massage were other activities offered which I did not take.

France from bottom to top

I last wrote after catching the train south about 350km from Paris to Poitiers. I stayed next to the station but climbed the hill to the interesting town mainly for dinner.

On Sunday morning I travelled still further south (about 450 km) changing trains at Bordeaux and Toulouse and finally meeting Malcolm at the nearest station to his home in Cordes sur Ciel.

Malcolm was a student at my very first school and went on the tour to New Zealand in 1966-67.
I had a wonderful 2 days with him, his wife Kerry and their friend from Australia, Mary.
The town is a medieval town perched on a hill and this photo is from the car as we approached. Their house is about the centre of the photo.

 I have many other photos of one of the most beautiful towns in France. It was lovely, after my long journey to sit having a late lunch which morphed into dinner on their terrace. The weather was actually hot there for my stay.

Title: Re: The Places We've Been vol. 2 - Pictures from Abroad and Travelogues
Post by: brian on May 19, 2015, 11:20:44 AM
On Monday, Malcolm drove me and Mary to the nearby town of Albi, bigger but also beautiful with a large cathedral from where this photo is taken looking over the ornate gardens and river.

(https://ultimatebrokebackforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi57.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fg218%2Fbrianr44%2FAlbi_zpserxt0mqc.jpg&hash=6ba699bf5a84a417fb578e5e7f5299b8)

Then the afternoon was spent having a BBQ by a pool on an estate about 20 km away owned by a wealthy English man who was not there but allows his American caretakers to use his facilities. They are friends of Malcolm and Kerry and also live in Cordes.  While very nice, I would prefer to live in Cordes itself.

On Tuesday I wandered the town and then we went to lunch in another nearby pretty town of Gaillac before I caught the train to Toulouse.

Malcolm invite me to visit many years ago and, when I planned my itinerary, it looked like we had a clash as they flew to England the next morning.  I am so glad we were able to make a few adjustments so I could visit for 2 nights.

I spent a night in Toulouse which is about 180 km from the Spanish border. I last visited in 1976 when I did catch a train to that border but in those days I needed a visa to enter Spain.
On Wednesday I went back to Bordeaux and stayed about 24 hours. It was also a nice city with an old town, another cathedral of course and some impressive buildings, thankfully slightly cooler as it is near the ocean. This interesting fountain on the waterfront allows you to keep cool but you do get your feet wet.

Finally on Thursday it was a train journey of nearly 1000 km back through Paris to Strasbourg on the German border. Thankfully the very fast trains in France meant it only took 5 and a half hours.

I spent 3 nights in Strasbourg. The first morning it rained but I visited the very ornate Gothic Cathedral famous for its Gothic architecture and carvings. It was the world’s tallest building for 250 years until 1874.

I also wandered among the Alsacien (I prefer this to the English Alsatian) houses in the canals and, in the afternoon visited a museum of Alsacien culture.

On Sunday I made another long train trip to Bavaria.

My almost a month in France has ended and I have to start saying Danke schön instead of Merci.
I have also now passed the half way point of my trip.

In the Botanic Garden - sadly the orchid house was already shut, but a lovely place.

Thanks, Sarah. Memories of when I did the canal cruise in 2010 and visited the area with the palace guard but they did not do any changing while I was there.

Peter, that sign has always pussled me ever since I saw it the first time a couple years ago.

Thanks Sarah, you are forgiven  :)
I did not climb the tower.
Thankfully, I have not had a traumatic day as far as actual travel is concerned, enough other things have gone wrong. The young Americans I met yesterday told ame bout 8 hours or so travel at one stage on a school bus, meant to be 5 or less, after flying in from the US during the train strike.  I just bought a bus ticket for 1 and a half hours last Friday although the strike was over by then. However I was at least twice, probably 3 times for some, the age of all the other passengers. The bus had come from at least Austria if not further.

For all non-Scandinavians: Tivoli is a very old amusement park, right smack in the center of Copenhagen. It may be the world's oldest, I'm not sure.

It's very beautiful, they take pride in their gorgeous flower arrangements, and very cozy.

The Tivoli Garden was created in the 1840's, and is only the second oldest in the world. Another one called Bakken, situated North of Copenhagen is the oldest. (you have to go, Sonja, when you are able to).
The poster from 1943 advertizes Tivoli's famous Balloon Wheel, which has been there since 1880. The current one is of course newer, but charmingly old fashioned.

Bavaria

I think i must have offended the weather gods.  Of the 12 days I spent in Germany, only 4 were sunny and 2 of those were travel days. Probably another 2 full and 2 half days were just overcast and threatening while the rest were fairly consistent rain.

The Sunday I travelled by train from Strasbourg to Munich then onto  Garmisch-Partenkirchen was sunny as was the next day when, seeing the forecast, I did hike up into the hills about 450 metres. This photo is taken where I had a coffee at Partnackalm about 300 metres above the town. I do like the way you can find restaurants with some accommodation up in the hills. Many people hike up for lunch.

On Tuesday I went to a lake near my accommodation, Riessersee, and you can see the clouds were already low so I only went up about 100 metres and was back in my apartment for a late lunch as the rain set in.

With pouring rain on Wednesday, I decided to go by bus to one of King Ludwig’s castles, Linderhof. I had visited it in the 1970’s. I got drenched just waiting in the queue to enter and as I left, not spending much time in the gardens, it began to snow although it did not settle in the valley. I think the mountains would have been beautiful if I could have seen through the clouds.  I had to change buses in a favourite town of mine, Oberammergau, so cheered myself up with a big plate of strawberries, cream and ice-cream.

The next 2 days were just drizzle so on Thursday I walked in the hills just above the town but only up about 100 metres and travelled by bus to Munich on Friday. That evening I went to the impressive Herkuulesaal in the Munich Residenz where I heard the Bavarian Radio Orchestra. Sir John Gardiner was the conductor. I think I have seen him conduct Last Night of the Proms.   I was in the very centre 2nd row but I actually prefer to be up high so I can look down and see all the orchestra.
Berlioz 'Harold en Italie' was first with Antoine Tamestit playing the viola solo. He was excellent and quite a showman.    The 2nd half was Schubert Symphony Nr 8.

Saturday in Munich was overcast but did not rain until evening. I went to the Nymphenburg Palace. I do not remember going there on my previous visits to Munich. After going through the amazing Baroque and Rococo rooms in the main pavilion, I wandered in the 200 acre park somewhat reminiscent of Versailles, and visited the 4 garden pavilions, each in a different style. This photo shows the hall of mirrors in the Amalienburg Pavilion.

Sunday morning was rain again and I wandered in various parts of Munich but it fined up in the afternoon allowing me to go to the English Garden which is a vast urban park. As in 2008, I joined many locals in sitting, drinking beer and listening to a Bavarian Oompah brass band. I only managed a half litre unlike the litre jugs being drunk all around me.

Monday was fine and sunny again as I travelled by train to Berchtesgaden but the rain returned on Tuesday so all I managed was a 2 hour soggy historical walk around the hills above the town.
Wednesday was better but still overcast so I decided to take the boat ride on Konigsee. I had taken this twice before, in the 1970’s and in 2008 but both were in the off season when the electric boats do not go all the way up the lake. This time I went to the end and took a walk to a smaller lake, Obersee. The track was a bit rugged in parts,

Finally on my last full day in Bavaria, I had the sun and blue skies which I would have liked to have seen more often.  I took the Jennerbahn, a 1,170 metre cable gondola almost to the top of Jenner Berg 1,874 metres where we could see over 100 German and Austrian peaks.

I tried to climb the final metres to the very top but even with my boots and stick the icy steps and dizzy heights forced me to retreat. However, after descending to the middle station, 1534 metres, I walked down a muddy track with lots of steps to the bottom at about 700 metres.

Wanting to make the best of the weather, I took a bus in the afternoon to another lake, Hintersee and walked around it and followed a nature trail through the Zauberwald, or Magic Forest, probably about 7km in total.  No wonder I had trouble going down to the town for my dinner.

Salzkammergut

The weather has certainly improved for me.  Sorry if I sent the bad weather to Dunedin.

As you can see from the photos it gradually got better during my 5 days in the Salzkammergut region of Upper Austria. It is now quite hot in Vienna but I know I must not complain.
The blue skies have made it hard to choose the photos to post.

I fell in love with the town of Hallstatt when I stayed there back in 2008. It is a UNESCO heritage town on the edge of a lake with wonderful mountain views. However to get there you must catch a ferry over the lake from the train station so this time I chose to stay in the bigger town of Bad Ischl instead and have easier travel to the various lakes and mountains.  I had an apartment right in the centre of town with shops and restaurants underneath and my window looked down on the river rushing below. However the bedroom and bathroom were up a narrow winding staircase from the lounge/kitchen which became a bit tiresome.

On the day after my arrival (Saturday) my departure was delayed due the panic caused by a misplaced credit card (I had hidden it from even myself). Once solved it was too late to do what I planned (left to Sunday) and probably just as well as there were still clouds and one or two brief showers.

I caught a bus to Bad Gilgen and waited an hour (over a coffee of course) for a ferry that took me along the Wolfgangsee to where a steam cog railway went up to Schaftsbergspitz at 1732 metres. I have included a photo showing a bit of the train and track.

On Sunday the bus went in the other direction to Obertraun and the Dachstein chairlift. Here 2 cable cars lifted me up to 2100 metres and a  20 minute walk (difficult at that height ) took me to the 5 fingers viewing platform. This photo shows the platform and explains why I had to pluck up all my courage to go out on it

From that point this photo looks down over the Hallstattersee mentioned before. You can see there were clouds but it was possible to get a photo with some patience and jostling as only 2 people can stand on each of the 5 fingers at any one time.

I returned back down the top cable car and took a tour of the Dachstein Ice Cave. This involved climbing 70 metres to the entrance where we met the guide who then told us it was 0’C inside but not to worry as we would be climbing 500 steps to keep us warm. I was probably the oldest and while I can manage the steps, I would prefer to take a bit more time. However I probably handled the temperatures better than the mainly Asian young people with me. The ice shapes were intriguing. I think this photo is the best of my attempts to show them.

On the way back I stopped for an hour in Hallstatt.  Being Sunday afternoon 31st May, I found it much more crowded than my previous visit in late April  2008. The views were still great and the town probably improves in the evening after the tourist coaches leave. I bought  an ice cream.

Monday I caught the train to Gmunden on the Traunsee and, again after an hour over coffee and cake, it was on a rather small ferry along the lake to Ebensee. It is a beautiful lake andthe photo also shows just one of the many water activities even on a week day.

At Ebensee I walked a kilometre to another cable car (they get a bit addictive) this time only 1600 metres but apparently one of, if not the first cable cars in Austria. There were lots of ski chair lifts at the top but not in operation at this time. I walked about 35 minutes each way looking at the views one of which is in this photo.

On Tuesday I was again on the train past Hallstatt to Bad Aussersee then a bus to AltAusseer which is on a smaller lake and I was able to walk around it in about 2 hours (6 and a half km). The photo shows one of the views. Unfortunately rather than wait and catch the bus back I decided to walk not realising it was another 5 km although much was along the river bank. The bus passed me at the last stop before the town so only about 5 minutes quicker.

I never got round to visiting the museums and castles in Bad Ischl. Left that to a rainy day which never came.

Yesterday I again packed up and caught the train to my last stop in Europe, Vienna.  I have a lovely apartment and the owner has been most helpful. Opera is my main interest here and, after rushing to pick up the tickets before 5pm and then buy a few foodstuffs as today is a public holiday (Ascension day) and even supermarkets close on public holidays as well as Sundays, I went to the Volksoper  (Folk Opera) which was my 4th visit there.  I did not know much about the light opera Grafin (Countess) Marizka by Emmerich Kalman but the music, staging and dancing were delightful. Fortunately English is displayed above the stage although I found it a bit above my line of sight to see the action and I gather some contemporary jokes were added to the script but not in the English. Many of the songs are still running in my head especially ‘Komm Zigany (Gypsies)’ and ‘Komm mir nach Varazdin’ (I visited Varazdin in Croatia back in 2013.)

Today I am relaxing, as I have a much heavier opera (Wagner’s Siegfried) at the Staatsoper starting at 4pm this afternoon and finishing at 9pm

Vienna has been warm, apparently unseasonably, with most days reaching 30’C.

As I mentioned in my previous message, I really enjoyed the light operetta, Grafin (Countess) Maritza on Wednesday.  I went to both Siegfried and Gotterdammerung (Twilight of the Gods) by Wagner and so fulfilled a dream of seeing all of the Ring Cycle in the Theatre.  They are not for everyone and I would not quickly go again, with Siegfried taking 5 hours and Gotterdammerung nearly 5 and a half (each with 2 half hour intervals) but the music is glorious. I was lucky in timing, as each was presented just twice this year.
That was on Thursday and Sunday.

On Friday I went on a round trip to the Wachau-Danube Valley. The train took me to Melk and the huge Benedictine Abbey sitting up above the town. This photo is in the Abbey church.

After lunch, I boarded a ship for a 2 hour journey down the Danube through the Wachau Valley.  The photo shows the castle at Durnstein above the town. This was the castle where King Richard of England was held captive on his way home from the Crusade. There were a number of castles along the river.

I left the ship in Krems and returned by train to Vienna.  On Saturday I went to Schonbrunn castle but just spent my time in the extensive gardens.

That evening I again went to the VolksOper (Light Opera) and saw Carmina Burana, ancient poems set to music to create a cantata by Carl Orff in 1936.  This is usually a recital by Symphony and Chorus but this performance was put on by the Vienna City Ballet.

On Monday I went hiking in the Vienna Woods but chose a short hike, probably just 8km but up 300 metres, due to the heat. The views over the city were not very good due to the heat haze. That evening I went to the much shorter but bloodthirsty opera, Salome by Richard Strauss.

Tuesday, I flew to Dubai where the temperature was 40’C.  Wednesday, I found my way to the Historical museum at the Al Fahidi Fort, not easy when you make a wrong turn in the heat. However the underground and airconditioned museum told the story of the development of Dubai.

Then I wandered in the huge Dubai Mall, apparently the world's largest but only bought a much needed juice and lunch then a book for the plane. Outside I took a look at the world’s tallest  building, Burj Khalifa but did not pay the $50 to go up to the top.

Thursday I made the long flight back to Sydney. It was suppose to be 14 hours but due to a plane problem we were an hour late taking off and it was 15 hours. I arrived Sydney at 7am Friday morning and had to travel in peak hour trains to my sister's home.  I will fly back to Dunedin on Monday.

Hi Debbie
Thanks for comments
Those photos seem like a lifetime ago especially as I am now sitting in Christchurch airport waiting for the final hour long flight to Dunedin where I left on 16th April.
Our flight from Sydney arrived 20 minutes early and I flew thru customs, even after declaring my hiking boots. So I have just on 2 and a half hours to wait. There will be an earlier flight but I am never game to book that in case.

Fritz, I was trying to find out. It was Sunday 14th, but we had already celebrated Corpus Christi the previous Sunday (sang Byrd's Ave

I'm not sure I'd like a whole winter there, but a summer would be nice!

We really enjoyed the whole year, winter and summer. Especially it being the first time I had driven in snow, up and down the mountain between Aldrans and the University campus in downtown Innsbruck.

Yep, Corpus Christi was celebrated this year on Sunday the 7th, no special celebration on the 14th. But the parade looks a lot like the Corpus Christi processions I've experienced.

In late June, I drove to Pittsburgh and joined two friends on a seven-day, six-night bus trip to the seacoast of Maine, where we saw lighthouses and sailboats and learned a bit about lobster fishing.  

On my drive to Pittsburgh, I made an overnight stop at Bedford, along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and had dinner at Ed's Steak House, which had come highly recommended by friends who once lived in the area.  The food was very good, although I had some kind of fish, rather than steak.

This one one of two old gas pumps on display in Ed's lobby.

On Day 1 of the bus trip, a Saturday, we boarded the bus just after 5:30 AM at the terminal, since it had to make four other stops, spaced half an hour apart.  Our bus was scheduled to leave at 6:00, but the bus company prefers people to be early, and we were.  There were 28 paying customers total on the bus, so it was a little over half full, which is nice for spreading out.  After making the other four stops by 8:00 and heading east on the Turnpike to the first town, we had breakfast at an Eat 'n' Park, which offers either waitress service or a breakfast buffet.

Saturday was spent driving through Pennsylvania and the north part of New Jersey, and going across the south part of New York State.  We saw the skyscrapers of NYC in the distance as we crossed the Tappanzee Bridge.  Then we entered Connecticut and spent the night in Danbury, at a LaQuinta out in the middle of nowhere, which was attached to an Outback Steak House.  The tour company gave each of us a $25 gift certificate for the Outback, since it was the only restaurant available nearby.

On Day 2, Sunday, we passed through a corner of New Hampshire and entered Maine itself.  We took a side trip through downtown Portland, ME, where most businesses were closed on Sunday except for some shops and eateries down by the water.  The main food advertised was lobster, but two of the three people in my small group (including myself) can't eat shellfish, so we found the Elevation Burger restaurant (100% Organic Beef) which is shown on the right side of the picture below.  The burgers were delicious!

Afterwards we found time to shop at the Shipwreck & Cargo shop on the left; I think that's where I bought my two new T-shirts, one with embroidered sailboats and one with pictures of several "Lighthouses of Maine."

Our overnight stop for Day 2 (Sunday) was in Boothbay, ME, at the Boothbay Harbor Inn.  We stayed here on Monday night, also.This was a pleasant hotel with free breakfast in the dining room which looked out onto the water.  A footbridge (1,000 feet long, so only about one-fifth of a mile) connected the hotels on one side of the bay with the downtown area on the opposite side of the bay.

This is the back of the hotel, facing the water.  The door opens into the dining room.

Our first activity on Monday, Day 3, was a tour onboard our own bus, with a local step-on guide narrating.  Rather than take us through the downtown area, which we would be able to explore later via the footbridge, she directed us to an area known as Ocean Point.

This tiny island was visible from the shore at Ocean Point.

There's a lighthouse on this slightly larger island, in the distance.  

We would get a closer look at three lighthouses later, during a harbor cruise on board a boat.

Our harbor cruise started a little later on Monday morning, shortly after the bus returned from Ocean Point.

I'm on the boat here, wearing one of the T-shirts bought the day over a regular long-sleeve T-shirt, in case of cool breezes on the water.

This bridge opens to let boats pass through.  But rather than opening up into the air, like a drawbridge, the main section rotates at the center to make two passageways, one on either side.

After the harbor cruise ended, we had the rest of Monday afternoon free to eat lunch, shop, rest, and then have dinner on our own in town.  I ate lunch with my friends, then went shopping for a little while with them, but ended up buying six paperback books at the bookstore.  The bag was heavy, so I finally walked over the footbridge to the hotel to put the books away.  I went out later by myself to make a round trip to town over the footbridge, taking pictures, and then met the others before dinner for another walk back to town via the footbridge.  Almost a mile on that footbridge that day!

Right after lunch, we came upon this moose in town.

One of the pictures from my afternoon stroll across the footbridge.

The colored objects are buoys used to mark lobster traps in the water.  We would learn later that each lobster fisherman has his (or her, but they are almost all men) own color scheme, which is known by the Coast Guard and can be checked.  This is to prevent other fishermen from traps out of the water that don't belong to them.

Our tour director was not sure how the custom originated of attaching locks to this fence.

The tradition started I think in Paris, where two people in love would seal the lock on a fence and throw the key in the water, to show that the love bond would never be broken.

But the city of Paris took a dim view of this practice, which was doing damage to the bridge due to the weight of the hundreds of locks, removed them and won't permit people to do it anymore.

Glad you like the photos, Brian.

I went back and looked at the Burnt Island lighthouse and its shape is similar, although it seems to have red glass in the window panes of the tower itself now.  It's hard to tell.  There are so many lighthouses in Maine!

Tuesday, Day 4, was the rainiest day of the whole trip.  Fortunately our first stop was inside, at the Maine State Prison Store in Thomaston, ME. 

Minimum security inmates are allowed to have tools for carving wood and making other crafts.  Some also work at the store, where they are supervised by a correctional officer.  The wood objects are made of cedar, and range in size from tiny sailboats up to medium size tables and cedar chests.  I didn't want to buy anything large to carry on the bus, but I did buy a carved lighthouse tower (painted white, with painted windows, and with a carved balcony which was painted black).  I also bought a small carved sailboat, which was polished rather than painted so that the grain of the cedar wood shows.  They had some much more detailed larger boats, which I admired but knew better than to think of buying.  Prices were quite reasonable. 

No photos were allowed inside the store, but this shot of the outdoor sign shows the rain.

Next stop on Tuesday was at the Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland, ME.  This was a fantastic place! 

Numerous Fresnel lenses, now out of service and replaced by automated lights, have been collected here, along with many other artifacts related to lighthouses and life-saving.

Medium-size Fresnel lens.  It looks large, but it's sitting on a table, so it's not a 5th order lens, which would be standing on the floor.  The largest size lens is a 6th order lens, and we were told that one of those would be too tall to fit below the ceiling of the room.

Sorry this is blurry, but this is one of the pictures of historic lighthouses.  This is the Louisbourg Lighthouse in Louisbourg, Nova Scotia.  It is Canada's first light station and the second oldest in North America.

There were other pictures on the walls in this section, including another Nova Scotia lighthouse, a display about Japanese lighthouses, and a display about lightouses of Scotland, but those pictures are too blurry to post.

I enjoyed the Lighthouse Museum very much but in looking over my pictures now, I don't think I had time to absorb everything and I know I didn't read the writing associated with all the displays.

We had a choice to go on a guided tour as a group with one museum docent, or to wander around on our own and ask questions of another docent.  Since photographs were allowed, I decided to wander on my own.  I still heard some of what the first docent was saying, but missed some of it.



When we left the museum in Rockland, our bus headed north again up the coast to Camden, ME.  We passed Penobscot Bay and, by looking in between the buildings and trees, we could see parts of the bay, including some boats, from the road.  But we did not stop along the shore at that point for a sea-level view, since we were supposed to ride in our bus to the top of nearby Mount Battie and observe the bay from there.  

That would have been a great view in better weather, but when we got to the top of Mount Battie, everything was fogged in.  We could barely see the trees right inside the park, and no one wanted to get out of the bus in the rain.  Our bus driver made another unscheduled try after lunch, but we still couldn't see a thing out in the bay.

We did have a nice lunch in Camden, though.  My group of three went to a deli for tuna sandwiches and potato salad, and even after the others finished eating and went souvenir shopping, I took my time eating, to avoid the rain, before going out to take a few photos.

This is a waterfall that runs from near the top of the yellow building.

While we were sitting in our restaurant eating lunch, we thought the heavy rain was continuing, because the windows kept getting wet.  When I went outside, though, the rain was very light.

I can tell from this picture that most of the water hitting our restaurant window was water for the waterfall, rather than rain coming from the sky.   ::)

Tuesday, Day 4, was the rainiest day of the whole trip.  Fortunately our first stop was inside, at the Maine State Prison Store in Thomaston, ME. 

Minimum security inmates are allowed to have tools for carving wood and making other crafts.  Some also work at the store, where they are supervised by a correctional officer.  The wood objects are made of cedar, and range in size from tiny sailboats up to medium size tables and cedar chests.  I didn't want to buy anything large to carry on the bus, but I did buy a carved lighthouse tower (painted white, with painted windows, and with a carved balcony which was painted black).  I also bought a small carved sailboat, which was polished rather than painted so that the grain of the cedar wood shows.  They had some much more detailed larger boats, which I admired but knew better than to think of buying.  Prices were quite reasonable. 



how interesting,,,,, regional prison art!

Huge bowls of potato salad, Jimmy!  For side dishes?  And we didn't know that the sandwiches came with potato chips anyway.   :D

Wicked good, we learned about that expression.

Yes, regional prison art, but I looked up their web site today to verify the town, and someone there commented "better than license plates."  What was surprising was the high quality of some of the larger and more expensive items.

After leaving Camden, ME and giving up on Mount Battie (the trip's only real disappointment) we continued north to Bar Harbor, where we would stay for Tuesday and Wednesday night (the evenings of Days 4 and 5).

Don't know how the tour company pulled this off, but this was our hotel.  It is rated Four-Diamond by the American Automobile Association.

Our first dinner in Boothbay Harbor Inn had been an all-included (free except for alcoholic drinks) group dinner at that Inn, with a choice of four entrees, and I chose the chicken.  Our first dinner in Bar Harbor was also an all-included group dinner at the fancy Looking Glass Restaurant next door to the Bluenose Inn, at the sister hotel.  It was billed as a lobster dinner, but again there were four choices of entrees, and I chose the haddock.

On the first morning in Bar Harbor, we returned to the Looking Glass Restaurant for a free group breakfast.  The Rose Garden, the more casual of the two restaurants at the inn, is where we had a free group breakfast on our last morning at the Bluenose Inn.

Our rooms were actually suites, with king beds, TV and dresser in half of the room; and a sofa, coffee table, two wing chairs and an electric fireplace in the other half.

The fireplace wasn't actually needed for warmth, but I did run it a little on the cool mornings, mostly because it was pleasant to look at.

After that, we had an early departure from Bar Harbor on Thursday, Day 6, and returned to the LaQuinta and another Outback Steak House dinner in Danbury, Connecticut.  After another early departure the following morning, we arrived back in Pittsburgh shortly before sunset on Friday, Day 7.

It rained in Pittsburgh, too, but the highlight was attending an outdoor community theater production of "Fiddler On The Roof" on Sunday night.  Fortunately, the rain had cleared off by then and it was a beautiful evening, although cool enough for a jacket.

I really enjoyed Maine.

Our harbor cruise started a little later on Monday morning, shortly after the bus returned from Ocean Point.

I'm on the boat here, wearing one of the T-shirts bought the day over a regular long-sleeve T-shirt, in case of cool breezes on the water.

wonderful set of additions, Debs.  Loved the fireplace one, made me think of the coming winter.  ;)

Thanks, Chuck.  I'm glad you liked the fireplace one.  I wasn't sure whether to post it because it was so dark, but it does show how cozy the fireplace made the room in the morning.

One time I even turned the fireplace on when I woke up early, and got back in bed to watch it until it was time to get up.  Very pleasant!

Beautiful pictures, Debbie. :) I've been to Acadia and Bar Harbor, Rockport and Camden--Maine is a lovely place to relax. Got to plan to go back sometime soon. :)

Thanks, Jenny.  I hope you do make it back there soon.

Boothbay Harbor is also very relaxing because you can walk from the hotels to the shopping and eating places downtown across that bridge, at your own pace.  It probably wasn't as pretty as Bar Harbor, but I enjoyed the location.

Some photos from last week's trip to Christchurch.
I stopped for coffee at the Waitaki River Bridge.The rivers come out of glacier and are wide, braided streams so the bridges are long. This is not the longest. It is further north at Rakaia.

The usual suggestion is February-March. January is school holidays so places are crowded but also the weather is more unsettled. However, like most of the world, you can no longer rely on the weather.

Merci (for both).

Wonderful pictures, Ingy!

The Roman and crusader ruins look like the ones I've seen in various places around Israel. No wonder, they are of course from the same periods.

1. Thank you, Axia!

2. You know - this trip to Jordan has inspired us to visit Israel very soon, in order to find out the similitudes and the differences.

A kind of "bathhouse" in the crusade era. In the middle of nowhere now, but then a hunting ground.

He did both.

And the sound came pretty close to Asian string instruments of that kind. (Monochord.)

Lamps in the chapel - I think signifying the Trinity, but they looked rather sinister...

Then we went by ferry through the Cyclades to Santorini (or Thira), The main island is the rim of the massive volcano which erupted in about 1600 BC destroying the Minoan civilisations here and in Crete. Nea Kameni in the middle, which we visited, is volcanic, and last erupted in 1950.

A less desirable residence that was for sale - at least it had a toilet!

We had a talk on how the vines were grown - they are all in the ground coiled into a circle - containing several meters of vine. They catch all the dew and seamist like that apparently.  The wines were good!

The shore of a volcanic island with hot springs bubbling up in to the sea. We swam in from the boat, and felt the sea water warming up and a metallic smell of iron.

My room was (by choice) on the top floor, the roof terrace. I loved it though 4 flights up whenever I forgot anything - no lift! There was a lovely sun terrace for the residents, but I think there was one other room on that floor occupied, and at night I felt I had the place to myself - and the seagulls.

My room in the corner on the left.

I am sure they are lovely but they are all just question marks on a blue background  as are  all avatars since I boarded the ship. When I go to my photobucket the pics I posted of the mosque in Abu Dhabi have disappeared. Not sure if it is the ship or Rumanian internet. It does come and go at times. They tell us it will get worse when we get to Serbia. The ship manager told us that emails are sent by carrier pigeon in Serbia  ;D
So no pics from me until perhaps Hungary next Friday or most likely when I move into the apartment in Vienna next Sunday.

Now I am in the apartment in Vienna, I can post some pics. As I am going to see Lohengrin tonight, I took it fairly easy today and visited the Hundertwasser House. The architect Hundertwasser was born in Austria but is buried in NZ and there is a public toilet in his style in the town of Kawakawa. He objected to modern straight lines in buildings.

A few more photos from Essaouira, Morocco.

I had a morning's trip in a car with a driver. south down the coast, to a not very impressive waterfall, but it was nice to get out from the town and see the countryside and coast, and have a (hot) walk.

No, Brian, it was a lovely temperature, about 23-28°. The only time I was too hot was walking back uphill from the waterfall at midday. My room didn't have a/c, which surprised me, but I didn't need it. Would be pretty hot in full summer I expect.

I spent most of my time in the Kurpark. The clock is even described as kitsch by the guide book but the flowers are pretty. The time is wrong. I caught the 2.15pm tram back.

 :D :D I guess kids learnt about the birds and the bees a lot earlier then
They did have 2 bedrooms (they were wealthy) one for winter and one for summer. I think this was the summer one.
They also had another room (suite) for mothers when birthing and I think for a few months after. Food was sent through a double set of doors. I guess a servant was in there with the mother. I did not take in all the details. The guide did say that section was of interest to ladies. Us men were suppose to be more interested in the farm tools.  ???

The guide was male and Welsh. Married a Bulgarian woman and has lived there for 13 years. (long but interesting story) While he could not give a first hand recount of times in the communist era, we had heard enough of that in Rumania and Dennis was very good.

Finally I reached  Almaueralm where many people were sitting eat and drinking beer. I think they had just walked up from this Luxury Health lodge. The coffee was expensive considering it was just brewed coffee and I am glad I did not have a beer as the track got steep and slippery just beyond.
I kept going and had my pre-packed roll and banana and water sitting with this view not far from the lodge.

If you come across an image that his this marking on it, it has a copyright on it, and can't be used publicly unless the poster pays for it.  Another way to tell if an image has a copyright, when you search the images on Google, when you select the image, instead of selecting  "view image" click on "visit page".  If this  brings you to a page with the image and a list of prices, the image carries a copyright and you need to pay to download it.  To download it without paying for it is stealing.

Thank you.

Just a few of the pictures from my recent trip. Starting out mostly with ones which other people in our group took of me.

At Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.

Inside the traditional site of the Last Supper/Pentecost and many other events. As Jerusalem was destroyed several times between the time of Christ and the Crusades and locations had to be passed by word of mouth during the centuries when the practice of Christianity was illegal, the location of this Crusader-era building is to say the least not accurate.

This is in Amman the capital, where we went to church at Martyrs of Jordan. I liked the statue of Mary and the minaret. It was deep into Ramadan at this time, and difficult to imagine abstaining from food and even water these long hot summer days. We heard the call to prayer frequently from this minaret, and in each room was a sign in the drawer pointing the direction toward the Ka'aba in Mecca for prayer. At this point almost due south.

Merci.

Since our own trip to Jordan was taking place not even two years ago, it's perfect to compare - and to remember.

Have you been floating?

Nope! Didn't want to buy a bathing suit and towels and all that! Nothing just for rent. But sticking my hand into that water was....interesting.

Yay!!

And look at that sky.

(Even fewer tourists compared to when we visited. People are definitely scared away from these countries...)

Everybody was saying that. Except for Jerusalem itself, we didn't experience very much in the way of crowds.

Great picture.

I once bought (from a mail order catalog) some wooden bowls and also a small storage cabinet that had been made in Morocco.  Not the sturdiest construction, but I loved the art designs.

It's nice to see more of that style of art in your photos, Sara.

I am way behind with my photos. I did not send any of Bucharest to my friends but guess one must include Ceaucescu's Palace. A monstrosity. The 2nd largest building in the world after the Pentagon.

It's certainly huge, Brian, but I wouldn't call it a monstrosity.  Its architecture has so much more style than does the Pentagon.  Thanks for posting so we could see it.

Finally I reached  Almaueralm where many people were sitting eat and drinking beer. I think they had just walked up from this Luxury Health lodge. The coffee was expensive considering it was just brewed coffee and I am glad I did not have a beer as the track got steep and slippery just beyond.
I kept going and had my pre-packed roll and banana and water sitting with this view not far from the lodge.

This is the Connecticut State Capitol building.

The next day, we had a delicious lunch at the beautiful 27-room Von Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT.  "The Sound of Music" was based on the story of the Von Trapps. 

The lodge is situated on 2,500 acres in a part of Vermont which reportedly reminded the Von Trapps of their native Austria.

This tree was one of the few which was already in its full red "fall leaf splendor."

This is the hotel where we stayed in Vermont.

It was actually a series of six cottages, each with several hotel rooms upstairs and several hotel rooms downstairs, with an outdoor stairway in the middle of each cottage.  We walked from our cottage to and from breakfast each morning. 

I remember that some people had trouble with the keys, which required first entering (from the outside) a small vestibule, and then unlocking and opening one of two inner locked doors into the correct hotel room.  But the hotel had a certain charm to it.

This picture shows the main building with the registration desk and the breakfast area.

very cool series, Debs.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Chuck. 

There will be more, although my camera accidentally went into "movie" mode and stopped taking regular pictures for the last couple days of the trip.  I couldn't figure out what was wrong until I got home.  So I have a 20-second clip of the roaring ocean waves in Maine, but no pictures that can be posted here.

But first, more of Vermont and New Hampshire.

We crossed over the Quechee Gorge in Vermont the next morning.  The bus stopped so that we could walk back and forth across the scenic bridge.

The Quechee Gorge is 165 feet deep and is the deepest gorge in Vermont.

We stopped in the very small town of Bath, VT, partly so that people could get a snack to eat.  The main attraction in town was the covered bridge, which has a similarly very small waterfall off to one side.

Right before lunch, we took a gondola ride, with the objective being that we would buy lunch from the cafeteria at the top.  The cafeteria was crowded, but we managed to eat and get back down the mountain in time to catch the bus.

This was the building at the top of the mountain, with the cafeteria.

Sights from the ride up.  Going up, I could see out the side of the car but faced so that I could not see back down the mountain.

Later that day we entered New Hampshire and visited the Franconia Notch State Park.  The Franconia Notch is a major mountain pass through the White Mountains of NH.  (The mountains in Vermont are the Green Mountains.) 

The notch was home to the Old Man of the Mountain, a rock formation whose profile is a symbol of the state of New Hampshire, until 2003, when the formation collapsed.


Exhibit inside the Visitors Center.

At our last tour stop that day, we took a "short walk" to see a waterfall.  It wasn't a long walk, but the path finally became too steep for me, although I made it to the first view of the waterfall.

My traveling friends and I had been on an early summer bus trip to Maine in 2015, but that trip emphasized the seacoast spots farther north.  In October, we stayed in the southeast part of Maine, near the town of Kennebunkport (George H.W. Bush's home) and the Nubble Light.


The shore right beside our hotel.

We stopped in a beautiful town in Connecticut on the way back and took a narrated boat ride on a small pond.  The fall colors were getting brighter by then, but I only have a seconds-long video that I don't think can be turned into individual photos.  So that's it for this trip.

And the town itself is the smallest state capital. A really neat place.

And I love how the capitol building backs up against a hillside.

This picture was taken during a brief stop at a maple syrup farm, which included a talk about how the syrup is gathered.  And we each received a small souvenir bottle of maple syrup.

This tree was one of the few which was already in its full red "fall leaf splendor."

We stopped in the very small town of Bath, VT, partly so that people could get a snack to eat.  The main attraction in town was the covered bridge, which has a similarly very small waterfall off to one side.

I wonder about the purpose of these covered bridges...?

I wondered too, and thought that since so many of them are in New England, where it snows a lot, weather could probably be the reason.

Turns out weather is the main reason, but there are some other interesting facts mentioned in this article:

Did  you try the  underground railway up the mountain?

Fraid not, we just went up in the bus. Didn't know of any other means of transportation.

Nope, they were sealed off. From what I've heard, there's nothing particularly to see inside them.

Fraid not, we just went up in the bus. Didn't know of any other means of transportation.

The Carmelit, named after the mountain through which it runs, Mount Carmel, is an underground funicular railway that runs up and down parts of Mount Carmel within Haifa. The altitude difference between the first and last stations is 274 meters (899 feet). Carmelit cars have a slanted design, with steps within each car and on the station platform. Since the gradient varies along the route, the floor of each car is never quite level, and slopes slightly "uphill" or "downhill" depending on the location.

The Carmelit is one of the smallest subway systems in the world, having only four cars, six stations and a single tunnel 1.8 km (1.1 mi) long. The four cars operate as two two-car trains, which run on single-track with a short double-track section to allow the trains to cross.

Wasn't aware of this one at all. Thanks!

We never quite entered the city limits of Haifa, but rather got off Hwy 2 onto Hwy 70 & up 672 to Daliyat el-Carmel to get to the top. The more direct road was probably a bit too winding for the bus.

It looks quite attractive!

I need to get back with more control over where to go.

This was a piece of stone that fell off many years ago. My DIL (who is a mineral engineer) said this was formed by the wind. I just thought it was an amazing piece.

You can see why such large areas of the butte fall down. The wind, rain and cold cause these huge cracks in the rock.

Such a beautiful place, thanks Linda!

Way back on Easter weekend of 1971 one of my fellow students at the Defense Language Institute insisted that we go to Chaco Canyon on our way back from Mesa Verde, and I'm glad he did. It was a unique experience, and I managed to get back again in the early 2000's. Hope to return again someday.

Fajada Butte (Banded Butte). The centerpiece of the area. On the right side one can see a smooth incline that goes about halfway up. This is a man made ramp that was constructed to allow the people to get to the top. The top half has collapsed.

The magnitude of building the ramp indicates that Fajada Butte may have had considerable ceremonial importance for the Chacoan people.  There are ruins of small cliff dwellings in the higher regions of the butte. Analysis of fragments of pottery found on Fajada show that these structures were used between the 10th to 13th centuries.

In the 1980s the National Park Service closed off access to the butte due to the delicate nature of the site and the damage and erosion caused by tourism. (Excerpts from Wikipedia)

This shows the myriad of rooms contained in the structure.

I agree, Nancy.  The shot looking into 4 rooms was very interesting.

Thanks for posting them all, Linda!

Such a beautiful place, thanks Linda!

Way back on Easter weekend of 1971 one of my fellow students at the Defense Language Institute insisted that we go to Chaco Canyon on our way back from Mesa Verde, and I'm glad he did. It was a unique experience, and I managed to get back again in the early 2000's. Hope to return again someday.



Thanks, Fritz! It is such an amazing place. I hope to get back as well, as there is more than half I have not explored. It really is a several day exploration.

Thanks so much, Suely!! I am very lucky to live within 3+ hours of this wonderful, historic place. It would take less time to get there, but the 3 roads leading into the park, are about 20 miles of dirt roads that go through ranches and over many cattle guards. This is on purpose to keep the tourist numbers down. You cannot get into the area on rainy days.

Not a real far travel for my parents (:laugh:).  They are spending the weekend away, about a 90 minute drive, taking their great-grandson (my great-nephew) Trenton to the Land of Make Believe.

Thankfully, the weather was nice, and Trent was able to get into the water.

The Sueve Sierra. It's a national park and it's highest peak is a bit over 1000 meters high. The interesting thing is that it's only 5 kilometres away from the sea. It's very unique in that way. And also because there are wild horses living in it, they are called asturcones.
