Olivos, Argentina – March 2020 – Views from the 16th Floor

For five months we had the good fortune of having an apartment on the 16th floor overlooking the Rio De La Plata and the city of Buenos Aires. Little did we realize when we arrived the view would constantly change depending on the weather.

It became routine to leave the camera on the kitchen table to try and catch sunrises as we woke up each day. This long posting features the best of what Argentina weather and a 16th floor apartment overlooking a ‘river’ can provide.

The sun, water, clouds, moon – all shape the changing view.

Toronto – July 2019 – Sunrise at the Palace of Purification

The drive out of Toronto featured a stop along Lake Ontario as the sun rose. Our stop is the ‘Palace of Purification’ – the R C Harris Water Treatment Plant.

The sunrise was fantastic, as are the art deco buildings. All you have to do to get there is take the streetcar to the very end of the line near Scarborough (but we drove!)

























Hawaii – November 2018 – Day 11 Lahaina, Maui

Our trip brought us to Lahaina, on Maui. One of the oldest settlements in Hawaii, it was once the royal capital of Maui Loa.

Today it is a center of tourism (as is most of Hawaii).

We were anchored just off shore where we had great views of the houses and boats along the coast.

Another day – another great Hawaiian rainbow.

Meanwhile the first mate casually monitored the situation.

While the crew readied the skiffs.

Once on the skiff, we headed towards shore.

But first, a dolphin show (not planned, just lucky).

Once on ground, we made our way to the famed Banyan tree of Lahaina. Planted in 1873, it is the largest banyan tree in America, covering almost 2 acres.

We took a walk around town…

To check out some of the historic buildings…

Including the former prison.

Some colorful houses.

And a great mailbox.

Eventually it was time to leave Lahaina.

With one last look…

We sailed off into the sunset.
