Photo overload

Ok ... so I'm really getting a little fed up of the rain now ...


The flowers are bending under the weight of it all


Everywhere is lovely and green


... but wet... thank goodness for the tumble drier!

So I'm off to Cadiz ... want to come? only by photo and memory of course ...
We visited there on a Sunday so the streets were pretty empty


because everyone was heading for the beach


and what a beautiful beach ... the temperature was in the 90's


We took a tour bus ... so some of these photos are not so good 

The city of Cadiz is full of beautiful architecture



... and an amazing cathedral which has this dome on top ... with gold tiles 


It can be seen from miles away and it was done this way so that the ships from America would see it and be guided into port .... Many of the buildings had lookout towers (4 on this building) which again were to see the merchant ships from overseas


The cathedral stands on one side of a square where we stopped for coffee



... then took a stroll through the little cobbled streets to another beautiful part



This beautiful building practically faces the sea and is surrounded by apartments on one side and pretty bars on the other ( look at those lamps!)


I want one of these apartments!


... Cadiz is a lovely lovely city ... clean and pretty with amazing buildings and history ... even Roman ruins ... and I was very taken by the lamps!



Have a lovely day

More lovely photos, Ross. We visited Cadiz. I bought some ribbon and lace in a little shop down one of those narrow streets. Lovely architecture, but the harbour isn't very nice though...is it? Unfortunately, we didn't get to see much, as I can't walk too far x

I love the photos you took in your garden Ros, but they can't beat Cádiz! Especially with this sunny weather, you must miss the sun, I know I do! Thanks for another fun trip abroad!

Beautiful photos Ros! These surely deserved to be scrapped!

Wow what great photos Ros. That really is a beautiful place. We've got the rain thing going on here too but it is mixed with scorching heat so our plants do not look nice and healthy like yours. :-( Have a wonderful weekend!
