Dorset: North of Spain. 8  Posted on 03/14/2014
We visited a souvenir shop on the way out, picked out a few postcards we ended up not ever sending, snacked on a soft ice cream cone and then plotted out the next couple of hours.  We walked down the pretty streets of Salisbury...

Images of Spain: Hanging out the Wash  Posted on 12/01/2013
