The Only Thing more Tedious…

… than sitting through someone’s holiday snaps, is sitting through their plane-by-plane and train-by-train account of their not-after-all disastrous (indeed miraculously but hence rather boringly snag-free) journey home. So I shall spare you the latter and merely inflict the former on you

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The first one, by the way, is not a photo of where a really interesting bird was about 3 seconds before the picture was taken, but is just to remind me of what a properly blue sky looks like. Or indeed, any kind of a blue sky. If today was anything to go by, I’m going to need to keep referring to it until about March.

Here’s wishing you all a fantabulous new year and many more adventures in 2011. I shall be taking my jetlag to bed around about 9:30 so if you guys want to stay up and celebrate, please do so quietly.

Thank you.

    I thought the idea, when putting ones holiday photos on the internet, was not to put up the best ones and let us go ‘ooooooh’, but instead to put up all 700, including the ones that are hopelessly out of focus, appallingly framed, and hideously lit and force us to sift through them all. Perhaps I’ve just spend to much time on Facebook 🙂 Some nice piccies there.

    Hope the new year tiptoes in quietly while you are sleeping peacefully and having lovely dreams. May the coming year bring you peace, happiness, health, prosperity, fulfillment, and enrichment, and may there be more Hello’s than Goodbye’s.

  5. Whispering: Thank you for bringing Colorado home with you!! Great pictures. (You’ve really made me miss it. Fair got me in the gut, they did.) Glad you made it back safely – and the Weather Gods blessed you! Happy New Year when you’re up and ready for it. xxx

    The west, particularly in the mountainous regions, does have the most vivid blue skies. I could look at them forever. It’s one of the reasons I so looked forward to moving back to Las Vegas after an absence of 10 years. What a disappointment to find that smog had diluted that gorgeous color to the same watery blue I could have looked at anywhere. Sigh.

    Colorado is fabulous, though. Great photos. Glad your trip went off safely and glitch free. Here’s to a Happy New Year!

    Thanks all. New Year ended up even quieter than planned, due to a power cut for most of the evening. Thank goodness for wood-burning stoves, candles, and wind-up radios!

    Sad because the link doesn’t work. I will try it on a real computer. Glad you made it home safely.

    Thanks. Hope you get the pictures to show eventually

    Are you sure that’s “properly blue sky…”? I can’t say I’d recognise it if I saw it, so I must beg to your experience. It looks pretty good though! I was looking forward to the blow by blow of your return trip, far too many changes of modes of transport, end ing up with a xx hour trip by rail to Bigtown? I bet you felt you’d never arrive. Thanks for the post.

    Colorado skies are amazing. And you’re lucky you missed the travelogue – almost as tedious to read about as it was to do. You’re right about how we felt – except by the end we were too shattered to care.
