Mosaic and blue Monday.

Please click on photo to enlarge.

.Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary of "The little red house".

Today I am going to take you to the medieval city of Pals. This little city is built on a hill so we are going up a lot of steps. I only have one "step-photo"today but more will follow.
All the buildings and houses are still like they were built in the olden days. They are all on monuments lists.

This blue bike stood on a balcony and that lovely color blue was all over the bike, the saddle, the wheels, the lot.Someone must have loved that color blue.

Blue Monday is hosted by Sally of "Smiling Sally".

Machtig mooi weer deze foto's en wat leuk die blauwe fiets, heel verfvrissend.

Het grappige is doordat het hier in Nederland ook heerlijk zomers weer is en als ik dan jou foto's zie dan wil ik meteen op vakantie.

Nog bedankt weer voor je virtuele kaart die stuurde, Little Missie is binnen hoor, zo'n schatje, echt ongelooflijk mooi.

Liefs Josephine

Gorgeous photos of those old stone buildings ... I think the blue bicycle is an "exclamation point". Have a beautiful week!!!

Vee said...

Beautiful old city with wonderful architecture. I really enjoyed seeing the little balcony filled with plants. Very pretty! I've always wanted to do that to an old bike, but I thought white was the color. I might have to change my mind.

Oh my goodness! To live in a country where the buildings are treasured and preserved ~sigh~

Good morning Riet, We just arrived home last night from a 10 day trip. Visiting our son and a football game. I am so happy to be home to stay for a while.

Your photo of the bike is very interesting. I enlarged it and your photo is so good. It is definitely blue all over, even the seat. Perfect for today's post.

Thank you for your comment on my pink Sat. post. You are right, we laughed constantly and enjoyed our week together so much. I too loved the last photo. A passerby took the photo for us.

Your trip is amazing. You are blessed to have this time together and to see so many interesting places. I am really enjoying your many photos. I am going to your Pink Sat. post now.

Happy traveling to you and your hubs.

Lieve Riet,

Wat een mooie foto's uit Pals. Prachtig die kleine straatjes. Daar zou ik ook wel doorheen willen lopen. Mijn ouders zijn er in het verleden geweest en waren er ook heel enthousiast over.

Een fijne voortzetting van je vakantie!

Lieve groeten van Madelief x

This looks like a beautiful city, Riet. It reminds me of towns i saw in Italy. There were also many that had many steps to climb!
