el chorro



two more from the lakes and el chorro, the top one is a fantastic shot tony took of the dam, we were in the forest beneath but at the top of a small mountain in that forest! the water realease thingy looks like a ski or toboggan run, an amazing structure.

and this one above is the nearly dry river bed, it is supposed to power a power station! not much there was there, and this was in early may this year!

this is morning i just popped into town to send a birthday card... sometimes we have big vans parked up out side the medical clinic in town, blood donar etc, with mornings is strange, it said a movil and precoz... so we have mobile obviously and precoz in the dictionary means precocious! how strange!

last night we had a small, i think only one regiment of ants in the kitchen, i had put down pippas dinner and she wanted to watch us finish ours first, so when i went back into the kitchen with the plates there they were... millions of the little things, forming two lines one into her bowl and one back out, they were coming in from behind the door frame at the back door, but they were not behind the door in lobby, so from inside the wall somewhere i guess, then marching along behind the bin, some were investigating that too, both inside and out! ugh! then the others were along the wall and down to her bowl... all over it and in it! and then back again! horrible horrible horrible! so within minutes, they were dead, everything was clean, and pippas dinner gone! so i think now its eat it or lose it in this house for her during the summer! my poor baby!

Some people touch our lives only briefly...
while others leave a lasting impression and are never forgotten...

What a wondrously beautiful place! (And it goes without saying that it looks like...guess what??)

And those ants!! I've had problems only once in 25 years, for a whole summer about 4 years ago. Now they are gone, but you never know, like certain blogs, they sometimes come BACK!!

Yes, your place is beautiful! I love to go camping and will try to take photos of our next camping trip.
I too have been fighting ants in the dog food this summer. It's the first time that it's happened. One time we had them in the boys' room but we used a bit of elmers glue and kept them out. Now, these...they don't seem to be responding the same way.

i would love to see the photos, i am interested in seeing the world, i know pictures are here on the 'net', from anywhere practicaly! but being taken by, friends, if i can say that, sort of makes a big difference...
