on a lighter note...









Jorge had a business meeting in Bilbao on Friday, so I decided to tag along. I only managed a few shots because I was checking out all the sales... I love you, but 50%-70% is way too tempting... ;)

Hope you are having a nice weekend!

Purple Flowers said...

I love your photos. And I also understand those sales discounts are too good to pass up. We'll be here when you return. In the meantime, have fun! :)

I stopped briefly in Bilbao many years ago. We only had time for a visit to the Guggenheim which was so impressive. At the time there were also the Jeff Koons flower puppys outside - are they stil there?

Hope you picked up some great things in the sale!

I sometimes tag my camera along to take shots but normally forget about it as soon as I step put of the door,so I thinking it is a geest accomplishment that you took pics at all:)

elisvermeulen said...

Great accomplishment... (sorry)

Crescent Moon said...

Ypur pictures are always thrilling (in a good meaning of that word).
Bilbao is awesome, I love the park around the rias and the dog-tree in the Guggenheim.
Thanks for answering, I'll try reading it when the mountain of school books I've got behind me let me :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It is so lovely! Thank you! Besos,

The top one's my favourite, but all really great.

Cobalt Violet said...

How I love a sale ... and up to 70%? I completely understand. 70 actually makes my heart beat faster, I am embarrassed to say!

Beautiful photos and now I need a treat with some powdered sugar!
