summer weekend







We spent our weekend in the Rioja (food and wine) with friends and in Zarauz (sunbathing... and more food) with family. The perfect combination. Hope you had just as much fun, but without all the calories...

Goodness Jane, you couldn't find hillsides laced with such beautiful long rows of vineyards anywhere in my country, not even in Tuscany or Veneto (I wish the unalignment of vineyards could just be at blame ...). You live in a beautiful place, and it sounds like you make the most of it.

Beautiful photos. You enjoyed a lot. Perfect combination, wine, sun, food and the smell of the sea. The "chuletillas al sarmiento" (cannot translate) look great.

Kristina said...

Stunning photos!!! My weekend was good - English style. Long walks along the river, lots of greenery but not so much sun. I miss sun!

Jane, I think this looks just about perfect. Only way it could be better is if I were the friend that was there with you!!!!

Well thanks! I would love to do photography more professionally, but I suppose I don't have much faith in my ability to make a decent amount of money on it! Your photography is stunning as well!
