We are on vacation
written with sand

Origami Boats
and piles of sand
tell in no uncertain terms
where the shopkeeper's headed!

Tiffany Blue
Or is it the Octopus's Garden,
luring us with white corals
and a red necklace?

Let's Hail a Caboach,
'cause we'd like to be
somewhere by the sea,
in an octopus' garden
in the shade!

  1. Clicking on the images
    will take you to more walks
    around Vienna,
    enjoy! :-)

  2. Gorgeous!
    I adore the first picture.
    So whimsical.

  3. The message in the sand and the origami boat -- how clever!

  4. Beautiful pictures, Merisi. I love the ornate balcony windows of the Chancellery, and the charming way the shopkeepers announce they are on vacation.

    And of the photos in your "Postcards from Venice" post, my favorite is the first one. You always capture images from the most interesting angles and perspectives, Merisi. They belong in an art gallery.

  5. Even the paper boats look pretty classy. Wow.

  6. Good morning I want you to be always well, bye ,Michael

  7. Merisi your photos are stunning, I love the picture of the photographer taking a shot of the beautiful architecture (the window), in your postcards collection.

  8. ooo...I love pandas.
    Here I bought a cuddly panda bag (L) that I can hardly put it down!
    I believe it is a GREAT find for every panda fanatic!

  9. It's nice to see no check-reins engaged on the carriage horses in the bottom photo. When the weather is hot and sunny, I wonder why they bother to drive the poor things.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
