I entered 2010 with a blogging anniversary. And I debated about my blog theme of posting art and photography that relate to each other in a fun way. Sometimes it's hard to find photos that relate to my art. I have very few photos of dogs. But this week's post did give me a good excuse to talk about one of my favorite places on earth. Hotel el Silencio del Campo in Costa Rica. The first photo was taken while we were driving there. I'll never forget the first sight of this classic cone shaped Volcano. On a clear night you can see lava pouring down the side. It's a very exciting place. But you won't be alone. The tour buses flock there on a nightly basis. The rest of the photos were taken on the other side of the Volcano. At my favorite hotel. The first year little Tiki was the only dog in residence. He loved to eat breakfast with us. But the next year he was joined by Mishka. I never did get a very good picture of him. So there you have it. A week of dogs. Tiki, Mishka and Belly LaGossa. Oh, and one husband!
