Adventures in Italy

A day spent here
Our ship
Let the wandering begin
I dislike crowds very much, but felt very comfortable here
We wandered , we had pizza and Italian beer , got a very good feel for this are, and loved it so much we’d go back to Santa Margherita ,Italy again. The people were so friendly and of course the weather was marvelous, my kind of weather…90ish:)

Benches on Monday,

I’ve been collecting benches for about 10 years. And last week our temps were close to 70 degrees. A big difference from today’s weather (24 degrees)

Anyway, on my walks last week I found a few new benches on the. Erie Canal, in my Village . And yesterday I went back to the conservatory

I just got such an urge to smell a few flowers😊, every one here has the spring itch.

But it will b at least 2 more months b4 we see flowers outside.

Have a wonderful Monday

Happy Bench Monday

Omg trying to prepare for every day of 365 is still is bit of work for me 🙂 how ever… I am always prepared for my Bench day

Beach living… these people who live along the Great Lakes must have the thickest blood around , people are already pulling out their deck furniture and temps are 10 to 15 degrees below the norm. We have had plenty of sun but the temps remain in the 30’s.

Too cold for me to be sitting in the sand.. how ’bout you :)?! Happy Bench Monday

Hipsta …

So I’ve started my journey of 365, a bit late, but, better late than not at all…

I think what I’ll do is post once a week, everything I’ve done for 7 daysStill playing with settings nothing too fancy

About last nite……

We had a worm moon. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse

b4 the clouds moved in. This is off of my kitchen. , and yep, my 2 Nd day of hipsta.

Using salvador84 and shilshole+ pop rox.

B4 I dressed it up:) , I like both of them.

Went to visit the turtles

I’ve been laid up for just about a week now. Saw the acupuncturist today and she fixed me up pretty good, I’ll know better tomorrow. But.. anyway, before I landed myself in this predicament , I went to our little conservatory, Forgetting not only was it Sunday but also the beginning of feb. recess :(!!! It was very crowded but I managed to get a few shots off .

It was nice to see a mom taking Her son out shooting

And then there r the Quails under foot , nervous little things , they are. With signs every where to b careful where u step..

And a mascot to end all mascots:). Yeah she lives there too.

But u cant help but stop by and see these crazy turtles , I’m told they are always “doing it”

A different type of turtle. He’s generally on land .

Well I found one room with no one in it . But it was time for me to go.

As it was getting way to crowded for me.

So off I went following the brick road.:)

Have a wonderful week end everyone

Out West….Part 4

Well our time in San Francisco was short-lived, as we intended , it was time to get to the train station.42777000314_a05d182bf7_o

We arrived a few hours early and were lucky enough to get on an earlier train.

We were surprised, we didn’t have to show our passports, or even our tickets, b4 we boarded. No proof of who we were at all.

So… 28589753937_d54984c1a2_o we all got comfy and then some one came to look at tickets, but never Asked for any other proof. Anyway…..

There were times the trains were so close I had to get away from the window, just one of my phobias :).

So the trip was really on.

some very interesting turns
