Scavenger Hunt Sunday....August 5, 2012...

Here we are again at 
Ashley Sisk's

So here we go....

Going back in time.

Back again to the San Antonio Mission Trail, and San Jose Mission.
Back to the 1700s, is going back in time.

Something just for me.

On our Panama Canal cruise last year, our group would meet every evening for a drink before dinner.
I had the martinis...with 'free' glass.  This one was the best....Key Lime.  Yum.

Best part of my day.

We sit on the porch every evening.  It's relaxing, and I have this lovely view.

Night & day.

Day is done....gone's the sun.

Look up.

I don't know what this little guy is looking at.  Maybe he's just planning his next move.

Hope you enjoyed this week's Hunt.

Texture Tuesday...Outdoor Edition...

This week's challenge at 
Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday,
is a photo taken outdoors, with one layer of Kim's textures.

We have an ongoing battle with the squirrels around here.
As you can see, we don't always win that battle.

I used two layers of Kim's 'Poetic' texture.
Both @ multiply 100%.
Then, I masked off the textures on the squirrel and most of the feeder.
