You are so lucky to have such a wonderful view to wake up to Angie, I too love the sea, I used to love walking on the beach in Wales with my mum and dad when I was a child. I would love to move to wales as some of my relatives live there.

Coimbra is in the north part of the center of this small county named Portugal.

The Brits tried to invaded it once, same as the french and the spanish... but they realized that they were trying to conquer a people that will find many ways to evade taxes so they quit :p

It's a nice place to visit actually. Many UK tourists visit portugal the whole year, mainly the south part of the county because of the weather.

This is a view from the building, where I work in The Hague.



The 'inevitable' windmill, in the old part of Zoetermeer, where I live.



The new shopping center, down town Zoetermeer.

Yeah, The Hague, Haia, Den Haag, 's-Gravenhage, it's all the same.
When I'm at work and look out the window, I can see the estate where our Queen lives. I think it's maybe a 10 minute walk ;)
I can also see the dunes & the North Sea. It really is a great view ! Big smile

Wow, all of those pictures are beautiful.
I'd love to visit where you live angie, it looks perfect for me Razz



I'm from Washington State (USA).

We get a lot of snow at home Smile



This is where my boyfriend and I go camping every year in october, I love it because it resembles home more than any other part of southern california.





This is back home in Washington by the ocean, it's so beautiful, I love that you can't tell where sky ends and land begins.



And finally, this is where I live now, I little more dry than I'd like, but still a very beautiful place.




(all images by me with my cheap camera Razz)

My gawd all of these places are breathtaking..... Shocked I won't even bother showing anything because Dallas isn't exactly the most beautiful city on Earth (and I'm on the outskirts of Dallas), but I have to say wowwwww at these photos!

*waves furiously at Evie the Muse*

That's a order!! hand dance I'm a small city girl, not so much for big city life, as far as living, but visiting...I LOVE seeing the big city lights and my jaw continually hitting the floor in amazement!

I love visiting my Sis in Atlanta, GA. It's so beautiful, especially at night!! And there is so much to do and so much to see!

You guys are so lucky to have these awesome views right underneath your noses!!

Ok, I have some of my own images but they are on my old computer which is a bit fudging slow and I can't be bothered to drag myself on there. Anyway, here is what is just a drive away:

Sydney - Darling Harbour

Cockle Bay Wharf. This place is really nice, day or night. It's also home to the Lindt Cafe.

Everybody knows what this ugly thing is. Nice bridge though. Razz (Opera House and The Harbour Bridge). I once went on a cruise and it took me under the Bridge at night, my god it was beautiful. I've lived here my whole life yet this place can still amaze me.

Sydney's Famous Bondi Beach. I love Bondi as in the area, the beach not so much.


The Entrance, up at the Central Coast. Very much worth the 3 hour drive.

The Hunter Valley. A little bit past The Entrance. It's wine country Big smile

That's Sydney for you. Well... NSW.

I love living in a village and we're actually not that far away from the countryside with rolling green fields and cows and sheep it's so beautiful, mind you I would love to live in Wales now there's a place with gorgeous scenery....that or my dream wish Massachusettes....*sigh* one day I will live there lol

Hug007 Yayz for all the slushy mushy Mom's!!! Let's see...my view is more apartments!! I live in a huge complex and how it's situated you can't see the road. The entrance is set away from the apartments; if that makes any sense. And sense I'm in one of the larger apartments I'm even further from the entrance.

Now my Mom and Dad's...wowzer...they live in the country, actually in Tennessee's oldest town, it's a historical town and celebrated yearly! They have this HUGE front yard and even larger backyard and these humongous trees that almost shadow the road sometimes! Very scenic and peaceful!! My Dad loves to plant roses and rose bushes so they decorate the lawn and he is so meticulous in his lawn care, they really truly keep up their home as do all the neighbor's in their neighborhood. I almost bought a house right around the corner from them....but then I thought...geez...RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER....nope...not happening... duh lauging 2
