I had big plans to do a Monday walk post but time and friends got away with me and it’s now bedtime so not time for more. ๐Ÿ™‚ I walked in “my” park right away on Friday morning, a delightful time with a bit of forest bathing in some sections. This is more (and of course different) trees than in many blocks surrounding our house in Arizona and nary a cactus in sight. So much beautiful variety in the world. Happy Monday!

Hurrah! It’s time for another road trip. Today I’m starting the 27 hours of driving time to go from our house to that of friends back in Naperville, where I’ll spend a week and a half visiting people and places. Thankfully the gas shortages aren’t in the area through which I’ll be traveling. Since it’s a travel day, here’s a photo from a trip going the opposite direction on a night I stopped in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the sunset view from my room.

As usual when I’m traveling, I’ll respond to comments but probably won’t be doing much online visiting. I might even update you periodically and who knows, I might come across some purples along the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

for Life in Colour: purple

What happens in Costa Rica stays in Costa Rica and unfortunately, this pool stayed at our hotel when we came home. However, the memories of a wonderful adventure came back with us. The pink bricks around the pool contrasted beautifully with the blue water while the trees provided shade from the bright sun. In another pool, we stood cooling off while sipping a drink. Nice work if you can get it. We did and it was.

for Life in Colour: pink and Squares: bright

It was an excellent visit but like all good things, it came to an end and Iโ€™m driving home today. It’s good to get away and it’s good to go home and thankfully I have people I love at both ends of the trip. Thanks for sticking with me while I was gone. Iโ€™ll have some doors for tomorrow and be back visiting.

This is the last day of the ten-day photo challenge in which Su from Zimmerbitch invited me to participate. Ten travel photos with no explanation. The only requirement is to nominate someone else to do the same and pingback to my blog. But it’s the last day and almost Christmas, so I’ll just ask anyone who wants to participate to do so and I hope you’ve enjoyed the series.

Day 9 of the travel photo challenge Su of Zimmerbitch asked me to participate in, no explanation needed for the photo. I’m going with the retro look today for this Yellowstone shot. Today I’m nominating Dan of NoFacilities. Dan, if you’d like to participate, please pingback or link to my post or blog. And have fun.

Su from Zimmerbitch invited me to post ten days of travel photos, no explanation needed. Today we’re along California’s coast. I’m also supposed to nominate someone else to participate and pingback to my blog/post. Today I’d like to nominate Deborah at Circadianreflections. You’re welcome to wait until after Christmas if you like.

This challenge is a bit like “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego”, although my repertoire of locations is much more limited! This is Day 7 of posting ten travel photos without explanation and then nominating someone else to do the same. (I was nominated by Su from Zimmerbitch.) Today I nominate Aletta of nowathome, coming to you all the way from South Africa. If you participate, please link back to this post. Now let’s travel!

Su from Zimmerbitch nominated me for this travel photo challenge. We’re not just traveling today, the two in the photo are as well. Today I nominate Drake at ledrakenoir to post ten travel photos, no explanation required. You may accept or decline. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you accept, please link back to this post. Cheers.

My nomination for this travel photo challenge came from Su at Zimmerbitch. Same old same old: one travel photo, no explanation necessary. Today’s invitation goes all the way to Finlan, where Ritva is trying to survive the dark of a Scandinavian winter. Take us away to somewhere sunny, Ritva, and if you do, link or pingback to my post/blog. Or just enjoy my photo when it gets dark.

Day 4 of ten travel photos with no explanation necessary. Su from Zimmerbitch nominated me and today’s nomination to do the same? Debbie of Travel With Intent. If you decide to participate, please pingback/link to my post/blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
