and we are back...







What does one do in Vitoria on a rainy Sunday? Take pictures in churches that date back to the 15th century... Talk about contrasts...

It has been raining so much here, that when it was time for Coco´s walk, she actually looked at me with a face saying, "can´t someone else take the boy for a walk tonight?"....

Lovely and peaceful. I can almost smell the wood from the pews.
Don't be sad. The rain will stop soon. Maybe it's better than snow?

I wish it was raining here, I love rain and I think I'm beginning to hate cold days without gloves and scarves!
YOUR Philadelphia looks so beautiful in your shots,I never thought it was like that, it looks so colorful and cultural!
Don't be sad, you're away from home but back in a very beautiful place with your family and some friends (I guess).Enjoy!

Big dry hugs for you to begin to love fall :)

What is the theme for CV tmrw?

Ian said...

I wanted the Phillies to win. Oh well, it's those damned Yankees again. I don't suppose you managed to get a ticket for any of the games? I heard the lengths that one woman was prepared to go to!

Any news about the theme for this week's Corner View? I'm sure it's posted somewhere, but I have a tendency to overlook things.

Catalina said...

is that church the old cathedral? I´ve never been to there.

It´s pouring down here, as usual.

Des said...

What great photos. And I really enjoy old churches. They are the best and it makes me dislike the design of more modern churches and cathedrals. Older churches have this quality that I can't quite describe that make them fantastic.

Oh, that first shot... amazing!!

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
