in San Francisco...

...on one of the many piers, this one had boats or ships. just a little update - we are on day twenty-six of our trip - getting used to USA now. we have taken about two thousand photos - a lot to go through when we get back.

another update...

...couple of days ago, we were in las vegas. the weather was lovely and we quite enjoyed our cheap days out. we visited all the free attractions, put a few dollars in the slots and enjoyed $1 margaritas and beers. we are now in San Francisco and have really enjoyed visiting both of these places - still haven't drawn yet but there are plenty of photos to look at for inspiration when we return.

USA update...

...we are now in Denver stopping over for a rest and a day of exploring. We went to Chicago at the beginning of the week and here is a pic of the mister and i - in front of the 'Bean'. I could look at the reflections of the buildings in the Bean all day.

hello from...

...the USA! just a quick one to say that the mister and i are away for about seven weeks. photo above is me doing my 'Up' pose of 'Adventure is out there!' We flew out of Heathrow on 30th September to JFK in New York and spent the next day walking over 100 blocks round the city in the rain - weather was just like Manchester. We then went up to Niagara Falls and drove on to Toronto which looked awesome at night-time as we drove along the Gardiner Highway through the city. Spent the next day walking round the city and went up the CN Tower. At the moment we are in Chicago and we have been to see The Bean, Buckingham Waterfall and up the John Hancock Tower where David Schwimmer (Ross from Friends) gave us a tour at the observation deck. (an audio tour) I haven't drawn a thing yet as my eyes have been too busy but i have taken loads of photos.
