Wordless Wednesday - Zakopane #1


My next series of pictures will all be of ones taken in Zakopane, Poland. Located on the border between Poland and Slovakia, the Tatra mountains are the perfect setting for this little town with alot of character. While we visited Zakopane, we rented a big mountain cabin perched on the side of a hill overlooking the mountain range. This picture of my kids frolicking was taken outside the front door.

This looks like the perfect place to run free. Just beautiful. I'd love to just pick up and move to a little town with scenery like this.

Alice and Margot - I've actually been posting Polish pictures since July sometime, and have many months worth yet to publish! If you get a few minutes, cruise back and take a look!

This rental cottage where we stayed was actually the same one we stayed in four years ago. It is just perched up there on top of a hill/small mountain with the beauty laid out before you. I really didn't even want to leave the house, just drag a chair out in the yard with a book and a beer.

reminds me of a simpler time, but then kids always live in a simpler time. how nice. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

OK - first of all - how did you get all fancy with your signature?

These photos keep reminding me that you haven't updated us on your diary translation project. Soooo??? That setting would have been a perfect place to work on it.

Bumbles - I was playing one day, and remembered during BBAW that someone had mentioned a website called mylivesignature.com. Fun. Go try it!
