After our stops in the Canary Islands(Time in Tenerife; La Palma and Lanzarote) , 0ur first stop on mainland Spain was Cadiz. Cadiz is a grand old city. In fact it is one of the oldest cities in southwestern Europe. Todd and I wandered the city, getting lost in the narrow streets. It is a beautiful city surrounded by sea.

Do you have any idea what the yellow flowers are?
I don’t. They were on a tree. Maybe someone on here will know.
Sure are pretty!

Beautiful photos of Spain and a walk to the past exciting experience!
Thank you 🙂
Beautiful collection of pictures!!!
Breathtaking! Loved the angles in some of your pictures. I LOVE the tree. What kind is it? Also, liked the the orange, yellow and green. Wow! Thank you!!!!
I don’t know. Thanks.
That tree would be a ficus – otherwise known as a Moreton Bay Fig in Australia. The buttresses are fantastic aren’t they!
thanks!! They are gorgeous
It is so fun visiting around the world through the view of your camera. Oh my goodness look at how bright and blue those skies are. Take care, BAM
What an absolutely gorgeous city. Your pictures are so inviting!
Thank you. I enjoyed Cadiz.
You photograph it all so beautifully. Loving your European trip!
Thanks. I’ve got more. 😉
Thanks again Vicky.
Thanks for sharing, I love Cadiz but haven’t been in at least five years.
You are welcome. Thanks brixpoul.
What a sky!
Nice pics. Looks like a nice place to visit.
It was very nice. Thanks Mary.
I love this! Wow!
Thank you so much Jayden.
You really do have a flair for photography. Lovely shots. Thank you!
Thanks for your kind words.
awesome,.. AGAIN~ 🙂
Thanks again! 🙂
How lovely. I love that we get to re-live this trip with you through your photography. Feel like I’m right there experiencing it in the flesh. it’s a nice supplement from actually being able to go lol.
Thanks! Well hopefully you can go one day. Spain is lovely.
All that blue and white – just beautiful. I can almost smell the salt air!
Spain you got art and architecture, supporting and encouraging for brighter days or happier moments with the end with colorful nature..very nice sequence :)) domes, the piers, the statutes the churches ..
Awesome. Thanks kalabalu.
They look KIND OF like a mimosa trees flowers, but I am not a botanist so don’t quote me on that. The ones I’ve seen up close here in the states are usually pink in color but a google image search pulled up some that were yellow
I think you might be right.
GORGEOUS photos yet again! I love the angles you shoot from! What a great perspective! And how lucky to be traveling so much! 🙂
Thanks Rebecca. I used to travel more. 😦 Waiting for my next vacation.
Where will you be going next? (Or would like to go?)
I don’t know. I think Todd is planning a 40th birthday cruise for me next year. (probably after my bday in August) I would like to go many places. Australia, New Zealand, Eastern Europe are a few.
Fantastic architecture, great photos 🙂
Thanks! I thought it was a very nice city. I would like to spend more time there some day.
We were there in August….brings back memories!
I am sure you had a good time like we did.
Nice post and pictures!
I appreciate the tour! I’ve been day dreaming about living somewhere in Southern Spain. Cadiz is beautiful! I love the angle of your shots, very interesting photos.
Thanks! Soon, I’ll be posting a few shots of Barcelona from that same trip.
I wait with bated breath. Love the photos.
I’ll watch for them.
Great photos! I am going to Spain visiting Granada/ Madrid/ Barcelona; any advice on what to see in those cities? Thanks.
I havent been to Grenada or Madrid but we did stop in Barcelona and spend two days prior to coming back to the States. I’m posting a few pictures from Barcelona shortly. In Barcelona you will want to see La Rambla(famous avenue), and of course the Sagrada Familia. But I just enjoyed walking the streets and sitting at the cafes. I look forward to seeing which you prefer, Madrid or Barcelona.
Thanks for sharing these! They’re fantastic. I was born in Spain (Seville) and was in Cadiz at some point (my family traveled a lot through the south of Spain), but I was too young to remember it.
Nice. Cadiz is the port city for Seville and a lot of folks took a trip up there when we stopped. Next time I’ll check it out.
Stunning photos of a beautiful place. Maybe I’ll add it to the list of places to visit! btw, think the tree with yellow flowers is an acacia (mimosa) – compare with this link http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3452/3247197940_67bab413b2_z.jpg.
I agree Igg, I think it is a Mimosa too. Thanks for the link and the comments.
Beautiful pictures. We visited Seville in February and were very tempted to visit Cadiz as well. Definitely on my list of places to visit – even more so after seeing your photos.
How did you like Seville?
Oh to see a sky so blue and feel the heat these pictures evoke. Fantastic photos x
Thank you so much. I am glad they evoke you.
Absolutely gorgeous photos. I might’ve just caught the travel bug again. Adding Cadiz to the list.
Thanks Greg, you should visit there someday. It may not be as exciting as Barcelona but it is worth a visit.
I’ve only ever been to the United States and Canada. While North America’s absolutely beautiful, I want to see a lot more. Your photos remind me there’s a whole lot more to see of the world than I could ever imagine, and that I need to get started!
Where in Canada have you been?
I’ve been to mainland British Columbia, just north of my native Washington State. My dad brought the whole family along on a hunting trip to my cousin, Doug’s lodge, a little cabin in the middle of massive fir trees, right next to a picturesque little creek. Doug bragged to us that he had both running water and electricity thanks to his self-made hydroelectric dam. I was 5.
I’ve also been to Victoria, B.C., which is an absolutely gorgeous city. Teatime at the Empress Hotel and the Butchart Gardens still stand out in my mind. My S.O.’s also been to Quebec, and has done some paintings based off of photographs her brother took while there. If you’re interested, they can be found here: http://www.aurelis-art.com/?page_id=11
Have you been to Quebec or B.C.?
Yes, I’ve been to Montreal but never to B.C. I’ve also been to Toronto. Both of these cities I visited often when I worked for the airlines but that was several years ago. I live about four hours south of the Canadian border here in Ohio. I should drive up there sometime and take photos.
Loved that kool tree! All of your photos were brilliant!
Thanks so much Kelly. I am glad you enjoyed them.
All wonderful Great travel “photo-log” you have going. Love it.
Thanks! I am posting a few Barcelona photos soon. I will continue to post photos of my adventures around here as well. It will be more difficult though as the weather sours. But, I do look forward to snow photos when we start to see the white stuff.
How does the sky looks so beautifully blue all the time in all your photographs.?? You seem to love it more than anything. Your frame always has it. Lovely pics.
Thanks Payal. I guess I am lucky when I travel. I’ve never thought about it but you are right.
The 2nd one ‘blue & red’ is lovely. but the last one ‘orange, green, yellow’ is what i liked the most. thanks for sharing
Thanks again Payal. 🙂
Love the last photo.. What plant is it?
And I guess I like the Canary Islands the most. 😛
Thanks. I think it is a Mimosa tree. The Canary Islands are very unique.
Thanks back 😀
Yea? Hm, I hope I’ll get a chance to go there ^_^
very beautiful pictures!! 🙂
It’s very beautiful
Thank you jukk888
Thank you for the like on my post about Spain’s economic depression. Good luck with the pictures, I love the blue of the sky of the second last one.
Thanks! It was a very nice day that day.
Lovely photos the skies are so blue
Thank you pommepal.
This is one of my favorite places. You have captured it beautifully!
Thanks Sarah. I am glad you enjoyed.
Those yellow flowers are amazing! 🙂
