Towering Follower

 

It followed us everywhere like an eager bystander insistent on inserting himself into every group photo. Peeping through golden leaved trees, stretching skyward behind palatial edifices and statuary, hovering on the horizon like a painted backdrop that could be rolled out at will.

Arriving in Paris I had anticipated finding the Eiffel Tower after a long walk, not realizing that, instead, it would often simply stand grandly in the distance waiting for me to turn my head its way.

River of Clouds

 

The swift mass of cloud took us by surprise as we drove from Marbella to Ronda, Spain along A397. High in the Sierra de las Nievas, the sudden swirl of white prompted us to park at the side of the road and grab our cameras.

 

 

We weren’t the first to arrive upon the enchanting scene, however. One of my sweetest memories from our trip to Spain is of the white-haired couple we spied enjoying breakfast as they luxuriated in their lawn chairs watching the fog roll by.

 

The flight path of the clouds was obviously anticipated and well known to them—cheap, yet priceless entertainment. And as the shroud of ivory poured through like a silent river engulfing all the mountains below, they watched as quiet companions, sipping orange juice beneath a Spanish fir.

Barbary Macaques (“Barbary Apes”) in Gibraltar

It is safer to stroll across Gibraltar’s rather unique airport runway than to approach a Barbary macaque mother with child such as this pair. Locals have plenty of stories about foolish tourists who stepped close for a photo. We heard about one unfortunate man whose camera was removed from its bag and launched off a cliff! At that point, it was a little too late to ask for the memory card.
