Horseshoe Bend of the Grand Canyon

The last time I saw the Grand Canyon was so long ago that I actually don’t remember it.  Apparently I got chicken pox just before or after (or during) the trip. But…I just couldn’t say that I actually remembered going to see the Grand Canyon. Until now. Look, here I am at my first glimpse…

Antelope Slot Canyon

For the Thanksgiving holiday my sisters and I went on a little bit of a road trip. This was our first stop, Antelope Slot Canyon near Page, Arizona. Check out what we saw. This is one of the most photographed slot canyons around. And as you can see I tried my hand at taking a shot…

Leiden!

Cammy and I had a layover in the Netherlands. It was about 24 hours. We spent the first half of our time in Amsterdam. Which was great. We had good food. Saw the Anne Frank House and the Van Gough Museum (neither place we could take pictures) and watched the Netherlands play football in the…

Cape Town!

I have just a few more random pictures of South Africa to share. So this is a picture of Table Mountain from Robben Island. That is the island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for so many years. This is a lighthouse on that island. And here are a couple of sunset pictures our last night…

Flowers! and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens

Do you all know how much I love flowers? (And isn’t this star-shaped flower especially nice? Two of my favorite things…flowers and stars. Anyway.) I would say that visiting the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens was totally a highlight of our trip. Mostly because I loved seeing all the flowers. And we were there in the…

Sharks!

I think I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves for the most part on this one. I’ll just say who is who if there are pictures of us. Also, most of the good pictures posted were taken by Cammy. She is the better photographer and I was a little scared about what I was about…

Hermanus, South Africa and Right Whales

So while we were in Hermanus, South Africa we were sitting on the rocky beach/shore and watching the water we saw some fun animals. Here is Natalia sitting near the water. And here is Cammy ready to take pictures. And this is what we saw. From the shore. While sitting down. They were that close. …

Cape Agulhas!

So the southern most point of Africa isn’t the Cape of Good Hope. It is actually Cape Agulhas.  And we were lucky enough to go there. Here is Natalia in front of the Cape Agulhas Lighthouse. And me. Don’t you just love how crazy and wild my hair gets in the wind? But at least…

Penguins! In Africa?

Yup. So there are African Penguins. And they live in, well, Africa. Near to the Cape of Good Hope actually. Here is a mommy penguin feeding some of her chicks. Which is actually pretty gross because she eats and then barfs up some food into their mouths.  And Natalia asked me to get this shot…
