Weekly Photo Challenge – Let There Be Light!

While spending time in Italy last summer, during our visit to Castel Gandolfo, we struck out on a hike around Lake Albano. After a stop for a refreshing beverage and sustenance in the form of Arugula, Tomato & Cheese pizza we headed for home.

As we were getting lost and finding our way again, this beautiful scene presented itself.

The beautiful setting sun and great company made this a must capture moment.

Then of course, came the tunnel that took us back through the mountain to the beautiful home where we were staying. With barely a sidewalk on either side and the maniacal Italian drivers coming from both directions, each trip through the tunnel was an adventure. Thank goodness there were lights!

Always and adventure!

Always an adventure!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Escape

We spent three weeks in Italy last summer with my sister, Johanna. How’s that for an escape?

During our trip, we visited Lago Di Garda with my friend, artist and musician, Elizabeth Lee. We had so much fun watching her perform with her Italian band, Cozmic Mojo. Our day on the beach was wonderful, no sand here, just small smooth pebbles.
