For some reason, I have a thing for ropes and knots. I can’t tie a decent knot to save my life (even my shoes!) but I do like photographing them, especially those along docks and on boats. This is a small collection of photos from our recent cruise plus time in Florida.
We often read about old paintings where previous paintings are discovered beneath the top layer. While not a work of art, it looks like this building in Aruba has had quite a few different looks over the years.
Monte’s recent post reminded me of this sign I came across on the island of Curacao. Litter, and trash in general, is a problem everywhere. This particular sign was in a national park, which thankfully appeared to have its litter problem well under control.
I need to get a sign like this and post on the road in and out of our neighborhood.
Kathy & I had stayed home for a few weeks when it was time to venture off again. We just returned from a swing through Florida that included a cruise with friends, a few days post-cruise with those same friends, then a few more days with other friends.
Our first stop enroute to Fort Lauderdale was Daytona Beach. We had some extra time so we decided to take a tour of the speedway. I haven’t followed NASCAR for many years, but it was still interesting to take the tour and visit the museum. This is just a sample of the photos, but I’m just getting started on looking at them!
These seats are located on the main straightway, on either side of the Start/Finish line. No idea how much they cost, but they are kind of low. Regardless, they look like they would have a close-up view of the action.
We spent an afternoon doing a walking tour and generally exploring this wonderful town. Our group stopped for drinks at a little cafe and enjoyed some of the local tasty treats!
This will be the last of my postcards from our river cruise on the Danube. Anyone interested in more photos can check out my Adobe Portfolio site, where I have posted a bunch of photos in several galleries.
We passed this quaint village along the Danube in Slovakia. We didn’t stop but it still made for an interesting scene.
We had numerous views of the old city of Vienna, but when we were docked along the Danube we had a really nice view of the new part of town. In the afternoon the golden light really lit up the buildings. Despite the construction cranes it was still a lovely sight.
Weisenkirchen means “White Church” in the Austrian language, which is how this town got its name. Walking back from a tasting of lovely Gruner Veltliner wine one evening, I caught this view of the white church.
My apologies, but life sort of got in the way this past week or so and I’ve fallen behind in my posting. My photo processing is now complete so I will attempt to catch up quickly.
We visited the lovely town of Durnstein, Austria and I managed to catch this view of the town and the Danube in the distance.
