How Long???

So I was recently given a scolding by Uncle Uwe for not updating my blog.  Sorry...but these days blogging has managed to fall to the bottom of the list of things to do.

So in an effort to catch up I did a few collages of the past few months to get as close to up to date as possible.

Walks with friends

And that folks is just a snippet of life in photos from January til now....more to come and I will try very hard to update with more photos and stories along the way....but I have to warn you....it's going to be a very busy time between now and September! :) so the posts might be slow in coming.

Germany September 2015

Hey everyone,
Sorry, it's been a wild and crazy summer so not much posting has happened.  Good intentions and all but time just got away from me.

Recently returned from a 3 week visit with the family in Germany.  Here are just a few highlights in these collages.  Enjoy!  I'll be working on more and will post them soon :)

Lovely day with Andrea at the local garden show.

Wandered the forest with Lars and Louis mushroom picking.  Yummy mushrooms for dinner that night!

Plön, Germany, established 1236... amazing village

Another adventure with Andrea, took the boat tour around the Plöner See (Plön Lake)

Small but amazing church in Plön, the ceiling tile work above the organ was stunning!

Andrea and I spent a day playing tourist in Hamburg...oh and a wee bit of shopping too!

Fantastic Accomodations.....

 A glimpse at the accommodations....
Back to the very first hotel we stayed at last year.
Perfect location, 15 minute walk along the seawall into town.
Home away from home... so beautiful and such a relaxing location.
Not much to look at on the outside but the room and the view were amazing!

More Azores Collages

Our first visit to the island of Terceria was great! Lots of new places to explore and new foods to try!

We had an amazing and very relaxing vacation in the Azores.  The weather was perfect!  We visited some new places this time and went back to a couple of places that we really enjoyed last year. 
Just a couple of collages to start with... still sorting photos out. I'll post some more collages as I get the photos sorted :)

Started in Povoçao for three days of unwind before going to the Island of Terceria
