Out and about with the Two Antes....

Today I took the two Antes, Fiona and Marisol, with me when we went out for lunch (my goodness, does it seem like we're always going out for lunch!!!!  It's just that this is when I take the dolls with me for photos! Honest! )

The weather today was really bright and sunny, but it was sooooo windy and the wind was really chilly.  However, it didn't stop us taking a detour up to the top of a cliff to take some photos of the view.  It wasn't till I took the dolls out of the car to photograph them though, that I realised just how windy it was.....poor Fiona nearly lost her wig!!!!  And my camera was jiggling all over the place being tugged by the wind!  (That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!;) )



The water looks really chilly...


 

Not many people on this little beach today! 


Even Fiona looks cold, it's a good job she has on her nice warm hoodie.....


 

 Sheltering from the wind, the perfect spot to catch her breath after the climb...



Where she is joined by Marisol who had opted to stay in the car whilst we went to the top of the cliff, as she'd insisted she'd not be cold without her cardigan! 


Back at sea level again, most small towns have a place where locals can go and collect drinking water from communal taps.  The water points are either natural stone with a trough or highly decorative Andalucian tiles like this one below!  Of course the water that comes from the mains taps in our houses is completely clean and drinkable these days but some people still like to collect their drinking water from a local water point.  Often the water comes from a natural spa so people prefer the taste.






Since she learned this 'sign' Marisol seems to want to do it in every photo I take nowadays ;)



Well we are already almost one full week into the New  Year......and I have already taken two lots of dolly photos in public!!!  Must be a record for me!

      It would have been lovelier had it not been so windy, I really did think we could be blown right off the top!!

    1. Thanks so much JS! I think I might have been a little bit crazy actually, especially as it was so high and there isn't a fence around it!

  4. Oh my Sharon, these are just gorgeous snaps of Fiona and Marisol, I love them all. I wish I could take dolly photos out doors, but I am limited to what I can do. Those tiles are beautiful too, but I think the fifth shot of Fiona and the second last shot of the two of them together are my very favourites.

    By the way I have just tagged you for an award.
    Hugs,

    1. Thank you Xanadu, I'm glad you like them! I like taking photos outdoors as it is normally where I get the best results, but I still struggle with people looking at me and thinking I'm weird...even if it is a bit true LOL!
      I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.
      And thank you for the award :)

    1. Thank you very much Ginger! The truth is that my dolls are here at the coast with me and most of their clothes are at home in Sevilla, so they really had to go out in what they were wearing. Marisol could really have done with her sweatshirt but she had to go without!
      I'm glad you enjoyed it though :)
      Big hugs back to you too!

  9. Wonderful to see you 'out and about' again with your 'girls.' I did tell you that it gets easier with practice.
    Love little Fiona's outfit and the way it shows off her poseability, especially on those rocks at the beginning and adore Marisol's pretty petite face and hair colour and style.
    (Very taken with those canvas shoes. I have a few pairs for my Sasha girls.)
