Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

An odd food spot trend in Barcelona: naming restaurants after American states. I ran past “Nebraska” in our L’Eixample neighborhood. We also found “Kentucky” on one of our museum trips.

In Sitges, “Kansas” had a lovely bar on the beach.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Today – I’m pouring over political highlights from last night’s Presidential debate.
Last night – I cheered on the Giants with my hubby and puppy on our couch.
Last weekend – I said “Adios” to Spain and flew back home to the Bay Area.

Now, I’m going over a ton of vacation photos. I spotted this cross on the Santa Cova trail on Montserrat. You can read more about our day trip out of Barcelona on my Eurotrip blog.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

If I wanted to see any photos of me in St. Petersburg, I had to get creative. I took advantage of the huge mirrors inside the Mariinsky Theatre for this shot with my Droid X.

Mariinsky Theatre
It’s a beautiful venue for ballet. I enjoyed my solo work trip/vacation in Russia.

I’m also ready to travel again! I have a never-ending “to do” list for our Barcelona trip. I’m doing the thumbs up/thumbs down process with my mental wardrobe. My bedtime reading: Lonely Planet Guidebook to Barcelona.

I also want to straighten out the moving box jungle inside my home office before I step on the plane at SFO. It may sound ambitious. I think I can do it.

Soon, I’ll be updating this blog with photos from Spain.

Woot!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

I gave up on my Droid X. I was fed up with the freezing and corrupted photo/videos. Also, phone rebooting without warning – not cool.

I dived back into geocaching when I switched to the iPhone. I missed the hunt. The mind puzzles tickled me.
Quarry Park Geocache
I believe the best part about geocaching: exploring places that were off my radar. We spotted this cache at Quarry Park in Half Moon Bay.

Pretty Geocache!

Weekly Challenge: Together

Sharing pasta, being goofy.
Just like the cartoons

This is my entry for the Weekly Challenge: Together.

The noodle is from our dinner of beef burgundy. I used a recipe from Lynn Alley’s “The Gourmet Slow Cooker.” The kitchen smelled amazing as the beef, red wine and herbs simmer away.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

I miss beach weather!

I got lucky on this shot from Half Moon Bay. The photo has two kids playing by the surf. In the foreground, you can also see yellow and green paint buckets left behind in the sand.

So, I figured this photo works for today’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects.

On one of my weekends, we drove through the Stanislaus National Forest on Highway 4.

Another cool shot from Fremont. Veteran and novice rock climbers walk through these climbing paths at City Beach.
