On Saturday, Marga and her mother went to Bilbao to shop for dresses for cousin Andoni's upcoming September wedding. I was specifically not invited, much to my delight. It was a beautiful day, so I took several long walks around town. In the evening, I went out to the little lighthouse, where I had been the day before, to take some photographs and sit and read. I took some wonderful panorama photos of the port and the tidal basin around it, as well as a cool timelapse video that I will share in my next post.

There's something awkward about a boat sitting on the ground like that.
But it has to be tethered, because when the tide comes in it will be in several feet of water.

Really, though... How many human faces do you see in this photograph? Our brains are well trained to pick them out.

On Monday, one of Marga's coworkers asked her, "Was that your husband that spent an hour out by the lighthouse on Saturday just reading and taking pictures?" She replied, "Yep, sounds like him."
