    Great shots, and liked the quote too, Arnel.

    • Hi Lynne! How are you these days? I’ve been thinking about the bloggers realm a lot lately, and wondering how everyone is doing! I can’t believe I somehow missed this! I am sorry for being so out of touch. How is the painting going? I will pop over to your site and see what’s up, but I just wanted to say Hi! Hope you are well!

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        Hello there, Arnel! Odd but I thought of you this week too … really. Painting not so much, heavily into photography and editing thereof. Have even sold a few :) How is your flower photography doing? Good to hear from you. I’m hopping over to your site now …

      • I never thought you’d give up the brush! You are so talented. I want to see your photos so I am going to get over to your site. Flower photography is good. I’ve hung 4 40″X60″ metal prints in my husbands office, and have a couple of docs in town that would like photos in their offices. We just got back from Spain with the boys, and I have begun going through those photos, but haven’t blogged about it yet. I thought of you while we were gone–am I mistaken or are you and your husband the travelers? I was thinking it was you.

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        I won’t say ‘given up the brush’ but taking a new direction, at least for now. It’s a lot easier to undo mistakes in photo editing than in watercolour :). Spain eh? What a great trip for you and the boys! Our last trip was around the Baltic in 2013 – next one, hopefully next year will be a driving tour through Scotland/Ireland for a month. I’m touched you thought of me. ;)

      • We were in Granada for two days when I thought of you, and wondered if you’d been, and if you had painted their wonderful streets. Then I thought I should have asked if you’d been and did you have any advice! We visited several cities; Granada, Seville, Madrid, Toledo, Avila, Segovia and El Escorial. Granada won hands down, no contest. I wouldn’t bother in future with any of the others, but I LOVED Granada.

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        Noe of which I have been too – Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, Santander, but nothing in southern Spain. The first cruise we took was to include Cadiz but the seas were too high to make port. ;(

      • Oh bummer! Least of which was being on a tossing ship! Argh! We happened to be in Madrid when the old King abdicated to his son. It was a zoo! That was the day we decided to take the train to El Escorial, to get away from the chaos. I wanted to see the northern cities, but there just wasn’t time, and the boys requested a visit to the Alhambra, so we did the Southern part. I also wanted to see Gibralter and Morocco, but just not enough time. Did you like the cities you went to?

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        It was my first trip to Europe, waaayyy back 40 years ago that I visited Madrid etc, back when General Franco was still in power and there was a military presence in the streets and on the beaches. I would have preferred to visit the south but we didn’t make it that far – we were doing a 3 month/13 country odyssey but still couldn’t fit everything in. I enjoyed Gibraltar when there 10 years ago and we also visited Casablanca and Rabat which was interesting for the difference in culture. Southern Spain is still a place I’d like to explore.

      • Well, I loved Granada, and I’d like to see Gibraltar and maybe cross over to Morocco. But I’d like to see the border region of France and Spain.

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        We spent a couple of weeks in the foothills of the Pyrenees based about 20 miles north of the Spanish border. We spent our time in Frnace. It’s a wonderful area with a lot to see.

      • Lynne Ayers says:

        Yeah, I have a lot of ‘some day’s too :)

      • Too many and not enough time! :-)
