ABC Wednesday means VARIETY.
This week is no exception.
The theme letter is " V ".
was the first word to come to mind since we just
returned from one.
The brilliant colors of Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland
will make it a VIVID memory.

Please remember to ENLARGE the photos to see the detail.
You will be missing a lot if you VACILLATE and don't do it.

VAST crowds VENTURING down Main Street trying to VIEW
the Castle could try one's patience.
It could be VEXING
but definitely worth it.

Along the way we saw an antique VICTROLA displayed over
the Music Shoppe.

The Candy Shop had a VARIETY of yummy snacks like these
VERY expensive candy apples.

Even the flowers in Southern California VIED for our attention.
I haven't seen Hibiscus blossoms with those gorgeous
colors before.

Last but not least,
I just had to throw these cute little Shelf Sitters
into the mix.
Aren't they cute VEGGIES?

I like the VAST choice of VEGETABLES waiting to be bought.

My favorites have to be the first picture, and the beautiful flower!

Beverly said...

Oh, I love the apples, but especially the hibiscus, and that's my favorite color.

Wanda said...

Very exciting Vacation and your Variety of lovely picture as always. I love that you can Dave are still kids at heart, and had a great time at Disneyland.

If you see my "Got a Minute or Two" will see our friends that were at Disneyland and stopped by with an armload of gifts... Wonderful visit.

Hilary said...

As much fun as the Disney experience is, I think I would enjoy photographing sights even more. Your vivid images confirm that. You got some fine pics, Sue. Really fun stuff.

Sandra said...

the detail on that hibiscus is amazing. so beautiful and i have only seen one like it and that is at Selby gardens. i love that castle and i did enlarge and the second one blew my mind at the number of PEOPLE... what a crowd...

It's always so much fun to visit Disneyland! I've been twice and one of my daughters has even been 3 times! I'd go again in a heartbeat - it's just as much fun without kids as it is with.

I'd try to go without kids, I've been twice with nieces and nephews, but as Leslie said it would be fun also without kids.

I love that night picture with all the lights. Looks like you had fun!

I've NEVER been to a Disney theme park. Feel like I'm culturally deprived.

The crowds... that's why I avoid going to Disney! It's different of course when you have a performance there (years ago I was past of the huge Christmas choir they had in Dec.)

What VIBRANT photos! Even though I'm not a huge fan of Disney World, that castle photo is truly magical.

Joy said...

The Sleeping Beauty castle looks very magical in your photo. The candy apples are imaginative, and tempting. Love those veggies.

ChrisJ said...

That last picture is especially colorful. You did a great job with V. Disneyland is a great experience the first time, but the large crowds and long lines are not as much fun, once the kids grew up.

Laloofah said...

Such a Vivacious and definitely Varied post! And definitely worth the enlarged Versions of your photos.

I share your View that Vast crowds can be Vexing, as well as a love of a Variety of Veggies to buy! (Naturally, being a Veg-loving Vegan!) :-) Those little shelf sitters are really adorable! I'd get one or two if I were there (and could afford them), they'd be so cute on a kitchen windowsill.

Sleeping Beauty's castle is just gorgeous lit up at night like that! But that Variegated hibiscus bloom really caught my eye. What a beautiful photo!

Lisa said...

We were at the Magic Kingdom in September and the castle was still under construction. Your shot of it is stunning! Can't wait to take our grandgirl back to see it someday. I also love your hibiscus flower. They are one of my favorites.

imac said...

Love the colour in the 1st shot also that last shot is magic.

Black Jack's Carol said...

This was a Veritable feast of excellent photos! The victrola stood out for me, even though I'm not quite old enough to have had one :) I also really loved the hibiscus blossom.
