Foto Friday - 12/12/14

Dear Family and Friends,

Today's photo is of my mother and me.  This picture was made exactly ten years ago at Christmas in 2004.  My mom passed away two years ago at 91 years old.  She was beautiful inside and out.

Thank you mom for all your love.

Foto Friday - 11/28/14

Dear Family and Friends,

This week's Foto Friday was taken in Nice, France.  It is such a day brightener to see larger than life art that is fun!

It is funny because as soon as I saw it, I thought of a head cold.

Montevideo, Uruguay - What a trip!

Dear Family and Friends,

During our trip we took a ferry across the River Plate to Buenos Aires, Argentina.  We spent several days there enjoying this wonderful city.

I do not have any photos to share about this leg of the trip.  Hopefully, Rich and Nancy have a picture or two to share with you.  I took many pictures of Buenos Aires several years ago and if you are interested you can see them by clicking here and here.

After Buenos Aires, we took a high speed ferry back across the river to Monte Video, the capitol of Uruguay.

We stayed in this wonderful 92 year old hotel.  Lucky for us Sofitel has remodeled and updated it.

A view of the charming neighborhood outside our hotel.

We ate ourselves silly on the wonderful food.  Our best occasion was celebrating with Carol and George on their 49th wedding anniversary.

We had a wonderful tour east to Ponte del Este, a beautiful resort city on the Atlantic coast.

We walked the tourist route in Montevideo.  We started at Plaza Independencia.

Walked the closed to traffic tourist streets and enjoyed the parks.

We enjoyed a lot of coffee breaks during this trip.

We went to the old town meat market and had the most wonderful meal.

They really know how to grill.  The meat is awesome!!

Rich took this picture of Chuck and me.

We had a wonderful time and are so thankful for such great friends to travel with.
