Carmel


Back home after the US trip I’m checking all the pictures and they are for sure a fantastic memory of what we saw. What you are is what you see, and we saw something that enriched ourself. We spent the last day in Carmel, with its beaches and houses and golf courses. Very chilly, but very lovely place to stay, maybe not in summer when the fog is there everyday. See you soon California.

Aquarium


Yes it’s the best one! A journey in the sea, discovering what you can see diving in a life. And a lot of splash places for kids at the Monterey Aquarium. Believe it or not, the last picture shows a sea horse!20110810-021220.jpg

State route 1


The ocean on the left. Mountains on the right. The sun in front of you. Wind, waves, fish, streeeeet… This the “1”! (today from Santa Barbara to Monterey)

“sss”: sun, surf, Santa Barbara


The perfect mix after many miles around the west lands: “sss”…! Santa Barbara is relaxing and in these day there’s also the Old Spanish Fiesta: the atmosphere is the best of the year. Only the waves are calm.

From AZ to CA


Some days ago we spent all day on the road, travelling from the Gand Canyon village to Disneyland: 460 miles. A long ride on very hot roads (43 Celsius in avergae), behing the glorious route 66, with a lot of music and games like Uno and all the iPad can offer. I need to say that the air conditiong of our car was our best fiend!

Along the Canyon


This is again what we saw today, during a long and special day. When you reach the point where the Colorado River is turning at more or less 360 degrees it seems to jump into an old film like “ombre rosse”. And late we’ve arrived at the Grand Canyon, obviously during the sunset! No words again 🙂

Antelope Canyon


It is not known exactly when people first discovered Antelope Canyon, but fortunately we have been here today! You can’t immagine the atmosphere along this long but easy canyon: I hope these pictures taken with my iPhone can help you, the best ones are still on my camera.
Thanks again to the local Navajos who are managing the tours with passion. Don’t miss this spot in your next US trip!
