Sunset over the bay

available at etsy.com

When we went to San Diego last fall, the weather was beautiful.  Since it was clear

in San Diego, we were excited to drive up the coast to La Jolla and take some sunset

pictures over the ocean.  That didn’t happen.  We learned a new term that day, “marina layer”.

While its sunny inland, the coast is all cloudy, and kind of depressing!  So we went back to

Jim on the observation deck

the city before the sun set, and got some nice pictures overlooking the bay.

Hey kids look… Big Ben, Parliament….

available at etsy.com

I will forever associate these two major landmarks with National Lampoon’s European Vacation where Clark drives past Big Ben and Parliament several times as he can’t get off the roundabout.     Though I think the first movie is much better!  What do you think?  Christmas Vacation was really good too.  Anyway, I love the dramatic clouds over Parliament, as it kind of looks like a storm is coming, but it was actually partly sunny.  And I LOVE this picture of Big Ben.  We were out late one night taking photos, and decided to finally go back to our hotel.  We got off at Westminster Tube station, walked out, and surprise! there was Big Ben.  And yes, the clock is accurate, it really was almost midnight.  We had this photo made into a large canvas over our couch, and it looks awesome.  You could own these photos too at etsy.com!

Going down a mountain is harder than you think

Staubach Falls, Lauterbrunnen Switzerland

We went to Murren, Switzerland which is a cute village above Lauterbrunnen (elevation 5412ft).  We stayed at the Eiger Guesthouse for 5 nights, which was wonderful.  On the last day, the weather was beautiful after a few overcast days, and we decided to hike down to Lauterbrunnen.  I thought how easy this would be, because climbing up a mountain certainly is not easy (at least not for me).  It was actually difficult.  Walking downhill for that length of time is pretty strenuous.  And it was slippery from the runoff from the snow at the very top.  I actually fell a couple times, almost breaking my precious camera! The photo with the sunray coming through the clouds was taken about 10 am, in Murren before we headed down.  You can also see this photo at etsy.com.  The waterfall is Staubach falls which starts a little below from where we hiked from.   The photo with the buildings is the main street in Lauterbrunnen.   This part of the Swiss Alps is so beautiful, I bet even more so in the winter!
