Windmills from My Lens

Standard

One of the ironies of driving through West Texas is the patterns of industry. Growing alongside the corn and wheat are these massive windmills refusing to be ignored.

An Office With A View

Standard

I recently visited downtown Dallas, Texas and couldn’t resist grabbing a few photos from this vantage point at Main and Akard.

Last Meal Of A Parisian Wanna Be

Standard

I knew it would finally arrive. My last day in Europe, specifically Paris, is here. It wasn’t hard to find my favorite parting food and the final meal of a francophile returning stateside. Chocolate!!

Charivari is a restaurant in Montparnasse that has the best chocolate ice cream ever. I don’t want the recipe, I just want to sit here at my sidewalk table at the corner of Montparnasse and Raspail Blvds., enjoy my ice cream and post a picture that will make you wish you were here… Bon appetit!!

My Two Weeks In September

Standard

I usually take two weeks holiday each year and travel for my birthday. This year, London also made the cut (after Paris of course).

Ever hear that “London Bridge is falling down?” Psych! London Bridge is just fine, but it may have gone full tilt a few days in September due to a visit from two wild and crazy girls from the USA.

Funny story… we were enjoying some great burgers at a nice pub near the hotel. I got the check and used the currency conversion app on my phone to discover we had spent $82 on burgers and fries. The bill was £50.60. We are now planning to fast for the rest of the trip, lol!!

Lovely Alice has an admirer. Graham was sneaky and got a kiss in just as I snapped the camera!

London Held Back The Rain For TenaciousM

Standard

So much to see and do in London, so little time… This is Alice’s first trip to the UK and I am experiencing the city from her child-like enthusiasm. My friend couldn’t be more fun!! Alice was originally good friends with my Mama. The legacy continues.

And improving our stay, our travel agent hooked us up with a boutique hotel: address, Buckingham Palace Road!
