Happy Monday, ya’ll. How was the weekend? Jaro and I checked out the Portland Seafood & Wine Festival (which was awesome), met a friend for drinks, and tried a new-to-us sports bar for the Superbowl. Wasn’t wow-ed by the game or the commercials, or the bar… but at least we’re getting out.
So. I’m on a sunshine kick these days. I guess that after living in Amsterdam and now Portland, I relish any moment that I can (or did) soak up some Vitamin C. And sometimes, the sun can truly be art, no? Since it’s on my mind so much, thought I’d share one of my favorite images from our trip to the Sahara Desert last winter:
I love how the sun is a giant, bright, white ball in a cloudless, blue sky above those truly spectacular dunes. So simple, yet there aren’t enough words to describe it. Pretty sure Jaro and I just stood there, alone, like a coupla idiots, staring at it as it slowly dipped behind the sea of sand. Awe-inspring.
Nice shot! I could use some of that sunshine about now.
Thank you so much! And me too, clearly. These Portland winters are so gray.
VERY pretty photo. wish I were there to see that!
I loved you’re traveler hints. HILARIOUS.
Reblogged this on ON THE WIRE.
Glad to hear you are getting out and about a bit more 🙂 Spring will be here soon, and hopefully some sunshine for you guys!
Thanks, Meggie! It gets better and better. I hope your house hunt is looking up. It will be such a relief when you find your home!
