I’ve been posting here since March, 2013.  Now that I’ve settled in Uruguay and have lots to share about living, working and retiring here, it’s about time to change the look of the blog.  I’ve been playing around with several different kinds of themes. I love to have color and beauty, and have tons of great photos to include.  So I’m looking at some formats that offer better ways to display the photos — really great views of whatever I decide to upload here.  I’m excited about these changes because I think you will enjoy them too.  After all, I think half the fun of a travel type blog is not just the information you get by words, but the feelings you experience by seeing it first hand on the site.

Today, for example, I’m going to attempt to upload the Atlantic Ocean — yep! The whole thing as seen through a little tiny lens.  I’m an ocean addict — it gives me a sense of awe and appreciation for its power and beauty.  We’ll see how that goes.

On this particular day, Kris and I stopped to watch an approaching storm coming in.  It had already rained quite a bit at the house, but we wanted to see the waves.   The wind was so strong that every time I attempted to make a video, the wind made the noise level unbearable.  With the sound of the waves crashing crazily and the wind whipping around, it was too much.  So here are a couple of still photos that aren’t quite the same as seeing the waves crashing and the wind howling –but for today just a taste of it as we head into winter.  Winter oceans are so cool!


Then, much to my amazement, the video just uploaded.  You can see by the shaking of the camera that it was blowing very hard.  Of course, we thought it was great fun!  We were driving around and took photos from many different spots along the beach.  Most of them turned out too fuzzy to be any good — The wind — oh the wind!

In just a couple of days, I’m going to take  video stroll through the supermarket where we shop.  Some of your questions about what you “can get in Uruguay” will definitely be answered.

Until then!
