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

The calm before a fight.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

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.
