My parents came for a visit this past week. As always, I tried to show them a good Spanish time with lots of good food, good wine, and good weather. The first day they were here the weather was pretty bad, but eventually we got to go out around Colindres and Laredo. Here are a few photographs.
Paul eyes a tortilla de patatas I made.
The chef and his creation.
A good picture of my parents and my tortilla. I'm proud of both.
Obligatory walk out by the fishing boats.
Mother and son and fishing boats.
Father and son by the water.
While we rested on a bench (parents are old), I couldn't resist an artistic water reflection shot.
There was clearly a missing fisherman in this statue. Paul knew what he had to do.
My folks found this anchor out in the water and effortlessly carried it up onto shore.
A panorama overlooking Laredo's beach. Photoshop refused to stitch this panorama together without turning my father into a scary cyclops. See larger version.
The construction building the new Laredo marina is coming along nicely.
Clowning around. Not unlike my father-in-law.
Up on this hill there was a paraglider flying around. When he saw us, he swooped down towards us a few times. I only got one pass on video, though. He was pretty insane skillful.
