Peñafiel Castle, Spain, quick look

Here’s just a few snapshots from Peñafiel Castle. I had been there several years ago, took the door, and checked out the wine museum. All very interesting. Here’s a look at the main gate:

And just for fun, here’s a view over the nearby countryside.

Fields and vineyards for as far as the eye can see. It really is beautiful. Then again, most all of Spain is. Take your time to enjoy it all.

Views of La Rioja, Spain

La Rioja, like much of Spain, features some marvelous views. A broad valley of fields and vineyards, it is dotted by some hills from which you can see for miles.

View from Zeerover, Aruba

I’ve posted about Zeerover before, a great stop in Savaneta, Aruba for a cold drink and a great view. Here’s a quick video look again for those of you who might need another fix and/or some who have never been.

The app I purchased for making video with the iPhone 6 is proving a little challenging. However, I’ll keep working with it and post more results here at The Bent Page.

Aruba, Mangel Alto Morning

So, I’ve been trying some things out with my iPhone 6, including a video app. Decided it would be instructive and fun to make a few little clips around Aruba. Here’s the first one, “Mangel Alto Morning.”

Save that view for January (if you’re in the northern hemisphere of planet earth). It will surely thaw your bones then. This is a great place to snorkel and just enjoy the Caribbean. Check out other posts on my blog for more Aruba stuff.
