  2. You all stay on the go all the time. If I lived up there, I would be doing the same thing. Now here is the question of the day - Gallery in London vs Gallery in DC. Which is your choice. I know you know what I will say...yes...London :-) Your photos are gorgeous. Great captures. Have a happy week. genie

  21. That's an amazing place, isn't it? I wish I'd had more time to spend there, but it would never be quite enough!
    Thanks for the memories, and thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/08/along-eno-river.html

  22. I love how you divided the tour into the sculptures and then the paintings (I read these posts backwards on two different days because I got interrupted yesterday, but it doesn't matter -- either way is perfect). I hope we get to see this amazing place in person someday, but meanwhile, thank you for sharing -- it is almost as good. I really didn't know all of this was there.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
