corner view "the great outdoors" vitoria, spain








The moment Bonnie uttered the words "the great outdoors," the sky opened and it began to rain. (Still love ya Bonnie!) We did get a few days of nice weather. This is what my town looks like on a sunny day in the great outdoors. Just wondering if anyone works here?...

Next week´s Corner View theme is "coffee." Cele would you mind going next? Thanks!

For some reason these sweet ladies keep getting left off. I have no idea what I´m doing wrong. If  I´ve left anyone else off (sorry about that!) leave me a message, and I´ll post it tomorrow. Thanks everyone! Have fun!

I want the work schedule these peeps have! Boy, if I took a photo of our downtown I would be putting you to sleep.

We have been having a lot rain too.

Hmmm... coffee next week, decaf or regular?

love it! it's just like tel aviv: no one seems to ever work - the city is always crowded :) here in the countryside it's pretty quiet 24/7.

Cabrizette said...

It's the same problem, here in the south of france...

Crescent Moon said...

I think I want to be the lady in the last photo, sitting at an outdoor table at a cafe, enjoying a good book.

Kristina * said...

i love your shots of the street cafés - makes me want to pack my bags and head south...

MODsquad said...

They definitely have their priorities right! Beautiful photos!! Spain needs to hire you and use your photos to promote the county! Really!

Ian said...

i enjoy looking at the little details of your photos like the people eating ice creams, and the olive in the glass. Was that your drink or a total stranger's?

Bonnie said...

Oh these photos make me long for Spain !! I love them ! All of them !

I think I need to visit!

Lisa said...

When my hubby and I toured Europe 11 years ago (on honeymoon), we LOVED how the cafes and restaraunts encouraged people to eat outdoors and stay awhile. You know how it is here in the US, eating in a cold overcrowded room where the check comes BEFORE you even finish eating. Your post reminds me so much of our lovely honeymoon, thank you.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Love the images - wish I could go back to Spain...

Ida Nielsen said...

Oh, it look so relaxed and Mediterranean....*dreaming*

caitlin said...

Why is it that everytime I leave your page, I feel as if I want to go back and keep looking through all of your fun pictures? There's something about Spain. That's what drew me to your blog in the first place. Thanks for being such a good representer.. that sounded weird, but I think you get the idea.

Kimmie said...

It's hard work to enjoy life so much :)
I love the two friends talking - one in a shirt and tie - the other in a t-shirt .... you have a beautiful city - rain or shine I'm sure!

Alexiev said...

This is what I love about living in Europe... the cafes, the relaxing way of life, sheer enjoyment of being outside visiting with friends. I can't wait for my parents to come this summer to really experience this. Great photos! Feeling a little jet lag right now, but making it.

denise said...

I love your images each week. Makes me want to move to Spain! I love the vibrant color and action in all of what you see.
