PhotoHunt ~ Beard

The PhotoHunt for today is Beard. I was digging through photos for a fabulous beard (isn't that what the photohunt is all about?)
I cam across these photos of my favorite museum in Florence

This is the monastary San Marco ~ 15th century church and convent that housed the dominican artist  Fra Angeleco and Savonarola.
The frescos are breathtaking. . .

Each cell was painted with unique stories of Jesus's life. The saints are all depicted with their identifying feature . . . Here you can see Saint  Lorenzo holding the grate he was roasted on. Saint Peter always has the blood mark on his head from the hatchet. (the stories always intrigued me)

This is a simple convent that is built around a beautiful garden.

Here again you see San Lorenzo and San Marco . . .

PhotoHunt ~Kid

The Saturday PhotoHunt is 'Kid'

Yesterday . . . a popup on my Kayak showed that airfare to Italy was $600 LESS than it has been.

I resisted the urge.
But . . . I could be like a kid and just Jump!

Travel Tuesday ~ Provincetown

Whilst I was in Boston, I was on an eating extravaganza. While I was near the cold waters of the NE, I wanted to tick all the boxes . . . Oysters, mussels and of course~

Lobster Rolls (minus the bread)

We went to the famous Bubala's . . . and had a great seat out on the patio. That is the best place to catch all the action in Provincetown.

It is Such a fun place to visit . . . you will see a little bit of everything.
(I would like to think that these are purple monkey's on his hat.  . . But I wasn't sure)

I Loved the fun and friendly atmosphere.

As we sailed back into Plymoth harbor . . .  I decided that the folks on the Mayflower were probably smart to get back on that boat and keep sailing.
That was one thing I learned ~ the pilgrams landed in Provincetown and stayed 6 weeks before they loaded up and headed west.
Maybe they should have planned their first winter in Mobile bay instead!

I am also joining Our World Tuesday
Y'all enjoy the ride~

PhotoHunt ~Coin

The PhotoHunt for this weekend is 'Coin'

This is a story . . . about the need for the coin.
I was at the Vatican and wanted to Light a candle at the chapel of Saint Anna ( a beautiful little chapel behind the Vatican walls. . . where my friends were married several years ago)
I didn't have a Coin . . . and I have learned my lesson about lighting a candle without a coin. Especially at the Vatican.
This is the view from the coffee shop across the way . . . a braved the glare of the shop owner when I traded a 20euro for a cappuccino and lots of coins.
