A Tidbit: Transient Sky

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, Transient, made me think of views I’ve enjoyed of the ever-changing sky and sea! Recently, Mum and I took off for a short trip to the California coast with all kinds of ideas about where we’d go and what we’d see.  But once we got settled in, all our other plans […]

A Tidbit: Taliesin West

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Order – a concept which, if I’m honest, has never played a large role in my life (afraid I’ve always tended toward the messy…).

A Tidbit

Greetings!  My next post will mainly be about my visit to this island!  Legend has it that if you swim three times around one of these rocks off its coast, you’ll find true love – guess I need to go back and give that a try!  Know which island it is?
