The theme this week is all about what you can see from your window, whether it’s at home or when you were away. Cathy Ryan of Picture This is the guest hostess of #Sunday Stills this month.
You can go take pictures or take a walk down memory lane in your photo archives. Today we are walking to look out some of my favorite windows.
Nothing beats Sedona, AZ for beauty and unusual views. This is one of my favorite shots from a window – ever. The morning was crisp and crystal clear, perfect for having coffee on the patio. The formation on the left of the post is Bell Rock, and on the right side is Courthouse Rock. Highway 179 right outside is a great place to walk or ride bikes and is surprisingly quiet.
This is my teddy bear, Manny. He has traveled all over the world visiting bloggers. This trip to Kauai, HI, he took with my husband, his sister and me. He loves to be the star of the the show, but the view behind him at Grove Cafe may have out classed him. I love the iced water glass and the tall pine tree reflected on the table.
For those who only know I’m from California, you might wonder why I’m flying on a local jet from Melbourne to Toowoomba. The reason is blogging. My friends Carol and Leanne invited me to visit them, so off I went, twenty-five hours from home by myself. Both women were extremely gracious to me and introduced me to life in Australia down home and personal – except in this case we were up, not down. You will notice that the world slants a little bit down under. 🙂 (JK, Carol!)
Sitting at our table at the famous Mama’s Fish House on Maui, HI, birds would flutter in through the open window as we soaked up the balmy breeze and waited between courses. The food was fabulous, but it wouldn’t have mattered because the view and the ambiance of the restaurant presented an experience you could never forget.
In rainy November of 2012, I attended a National Council for the Social Studies Conference in Seattle, Washington, where my first husband grew up. I hadn’t been back since he passed away in 1994, so the trip had special memories for me. I loved this skyline picture from my ninth-story window because of the rain spatters on the window and the lovely clouds accenting the buildings. I felt super creative with my watermark.
Central California gets about ten inches of rain a year on average. This was one of the rare rainy days in December, 2013. Notice that we still had power, though. That isn’t always the case when it storms here.
Now you’ve seen out of some of my favorite windows. I hope you enjoyed the views. Doing this challenge brought back some great memories. Thanks Cathy for hosting Terri’s Photo Challenge, Sunday Stills , What You Can See From Your Window.
