news, reruns, beach, and bulls...

News...
Jorge has taken a job in Madrid... This city girl is moving back to a city! More details soon.

Reruns...
Since summer is the time for reruns I thought I´d post some of my old favorites from posts past. I´m turning off the comments because you were already once so generous... and I thank you for that... :)

Beach...
I´ll be at the beach again this year where I´ll be drying out my wet bones, taking early morning walks, and defending my Parcheesi Champion of the World title.... (Meet me in Zarauz if you´d like to take me on ;))

Bulls...
I´m working on a photography book on the life of a bullfighter. But I´m sure you already figured that one out. ;)

I´ll be out of internet reach so I´m wishing you all a happy happy August! Try not to do anything too fun or interesting. I don´t want to miss anything!


(Some stolen moments from the past few days:))

Big hugs my friends!

Great photos! As always...

I heard on the radio that bullfighting is being banned, or was banned in one region, or something. It's the right time to come out with a book on the controversial subject! Moving to the city sounds heavenly. Happy August!

I've been to Spain twice, and if you can believe it, I've never been to Madrid. Well - the airport. But that doesn't count.

I'm a city girl too - so I think your news is super exciting.

Enjoying the reruns - but look forward to new posts soon.

Danny said...

I have listened from my friend that Spain has more things and fun stuffs for the tourists people who wish to enjoy the their time.
Here are alluring beaches, parks, mix of both old and modern cities and beauty of its culture.

I just discovered your blog and am sitting here completely jealous and in total awe. Spain is one of my all-time favorite countries. Madrid is fabulously wonderful. Thanks for sharing your life with all of us. It is beautiful.
