Travel theme – Winter

This week’s travel theme? Well, as of this week, it’s officially winter – even though in my part of the world, winter weather started weeks ago, and since yesterday (also known as The First Day Of Winter Arrrgghh), it’s felt pretty much like spring outside.

But when you’re traveling, what “winter” means can change quickly. Here’s a photo from last December 27 –

And a second picture, taken the following day in Williamsburg, Virginia, only a couple of hundred miles (or about 370 kilometers, if you think in metric) further south and nearer the ocean.

Travel theme – Still

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is “Still” – in whichever of its many meanings fits your photo!
