    Default Wake up View...

    Imagine...
    wake up... fix yourself a good cup of coffee [from beans grown in your neighborhood]... walk out onto the veranda of your little house... and be treated to this kind of view on Christmas Day.


    Volcan de Fuego [Volcano of Fire]... letting off a little steam...
    15 miles away... 13,000 ft high... and it's lower slopes are home to upwards of 30 species of Orchids.

    Life is Good... Scotty.

    Lovely, Scotty!
    I was in Jalapa last year and the coffee was SO SO good. I still have a lilttle in the freezer but it is not the same.
    Those Veracruzanos sure are good growers!


    (mmm, now I need coffee! lol!)

    This is not where I wake up, thankfully, but I get to enjoy it every day!

    It is a little hazy today, but here is one looking north towards Mt. Monadnock which I can see today but won't be clear in the pic I'm afraid...

    Heather, I think New England is one of the most beautiful places on earth! I just wish I could enjoy the fall colors.

    Yes, it is lovely. Oh, I bet you understand the logo better now too.

    I know, it is unfortunate that you cannot enjoy the foliage, Pete. But you've got that nice blue-ish schlimii, that's pretty cool!
    When I was taking pics yesterday I tried to take that all into consideration, except the den. pic. I need to stop photographing my plants against trees!

    The only fall color I can easily see is the bright yellow color. The others I don't see at all.

    Really nice, Heather. Heck of a view! Scotty, I love Mexico. It's not just the scenery, it's the whole different attitude about things. I think we're all pretty fortunate, though, to be living in the places we do.

    I'd post a scenery pic but it's just a great view of downtown NY.

    So here's a moonrise of somewhere I'd rather be.
