A blessing for travelers.

On our day trip to Mexico, I spotted this 75-foot statue of Jesus off the highway leading to Ensenada.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

April 2nd, 2014

Craving hot weather.

Travel memories…
We left our sweaters back in the hotel when we wandered around Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter) in Barcelona.
I love this shot of Hanna – caught in the middle of a thought. We had a blast celebrating her birthday in Spain. Also – we were grateful when she translated our questions and food orders.

I managed to order clara and cava at bars, on my own, by the end of the trip.

Tourist bonus: cached maps on our smartphones synched up with GPS signals. We didn’t need cell phone service. It’s like having a live map when you’re navigating thru twisty alleys in Barri Gòtic!

A busker entertained us as we waited to go inside the Picasso Museum.

Travel theme: Statues

April 1st, 2014

My mind is wandering. I am ready for another travel adventure. Anywhere but here. Some place sunny.

St. Petersburg was quite lovely in September. My Russian colleagues thought I needed a heavier coat when it rained. The wet weather balanced out with the balmy last days of summer, melting into autumn.

A hallway of statues inside the Hermitage.

I also enjoyed summer in Montreal.
The cobblestone streets of Old Montreal reminded me of Paris.

I know. Long time.

My life at work – all Olympics, all the time. I’m producing the Olympic Zone show. It airs before NBC’s primetime coverage of the Winter Games in Sochi. I’ve always wanted to work on a show like this.

Also – I’m always tickled to see my former coaches by the railing, mentoring the new generation of skating stars.

Outside of the newsroom…

I’m keeping up with my bootcamp classes.

Feels like Winter

December 1st, 2013

In the newsroom…
I’ve wrote about big rigs spinning out on slick icy roads.
I cut video of snow dumping on Midwest highways and neighborhoods.

Then I enjoyed California’s version of winter with my mother-in-law. This is Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero.

Pigeon Point Lighthouse
It’s always a pleasure to see visitors dazzled by sun-kissed beaches and the deep-blue surf.

What’s the weather like in your neighborhood?
