Cadiz, Spain

This past fall we visited Rome and then cruised from there to Ft Lauderdale.  My last blog of the trip was about Gibraltar.  Our next stop was Cadiz.  This ancient city is located on a narrow spit of land on the southwestern coast of Spain surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean.  The old town has narrow streets and lovely plazas.

In the morning we took a bus ride out to Jerez, a small town on the mainland, to tour the Beam Winery.  They make Harvey’s Bristol Crème here …  of course we had to do a taste test!

Back in the city for the afternoon, we headed out for a long walk around the old town.

    Hi Gracia,

    I don’t know if you are aware of it … but your photos are really looking professional! The framing, the choice of angle, the proper use of existing light. You’re good girl!

    Made me wonder if you know about the stock photo web sites where you can actually sell your work, sometimes over and over again. With all the pics you have, think you might do quite well.

    The ones I’ve read about are: iStock, Fotolia, Dreamstime, and Bigstock. You should give them a try 😉

      Thanks, Janet. We were traveling this spring and I’ve gotten way behind. My summer project is to catch up where we’ve been recently and then keep plugging away on pictures from older trips. I don’t want my hobby to become a job, though!
