Oh, the joy of a sunset. A sundowner is one of the favorite part of any day of ours, and we have experienced thousands of spectacular ones throughout the world. The end of one day, transforming into the night before the cycle begins again is consistently magical. This one, from the scenic coast of Oregon.
The pink limo pulled up in front of our camping cabin at the Graceland RV park. Taste buds drooling, we climbed in for our short ride to Marlowe’s BBQ restaurant, a BBQ institution in Memphis.

Although I had traveled through the area several times as a child, for some reason my parents never found the area interesting enough to actually spend time in.

We have a fairly substantial shell collection from our travels around the world, but this partially damaged sand dollar was particularly appealing to me.
At the Tombs of the Emperors temple complex, just south of Hue on the Perfume River, has some fantastic temples offering exquisite detail. If you find yourself in Hue, taking the very interesting, albeit touristy, cruise down the Perfume River is a must.
