I'm home now, Liam... just lots of pics to upload! We had a great time (my daughter lives there also). I love the city, for sure! Thanks very much for the Like.

Warm regards, Marlene

P.S. I dropped my old camera and totaled it... had to buy a new pocket camera & ended up with an SX150IS. It's a nice little camera, but has a lousy grip. Hope I don't drop this one, too!
