Dievole Wine Resort in the Hills of Chianti Classico

I spent the last week at a photo workshop at the Dievole Wine Resort in the verdant hills of the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. It was an incredibly beautiful and restful location for both the workshop and for just being. Lovely rooms, great staff, and delicious food. It is within an easy drive to Siena, San Giminagno, and several small hill towns.

Copenhagen Canal Tour

It was a sunny but brisk day in Copenhagen. Perfect for a late afternoon canal tour.

Departed from Nyhavn, or new harbor. Now a trendy and tourist area, it used to be a bad section of town.

The Opera House, a gift to the country from Denmark’s richest man.

The National Theater

One of the kings liked Amsterdam so he built canals.

There are lots of low bridges.

You can climb the spire of Our Savior’s Church. Spot the tiny people.

Three entwined dragons top the Borsen, a 17th-century stock exchange. The dragons represent Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

Back to Nyhavn.

On the Road Again: Copenhagen

Arrived this afternoon for two weeks in Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Stockholm. Staying around the corner from Nyhavn.

Backroads America: The Royal Bar, Park Rapids, Minnesota

The best hamburgers in northern Minnesota.

Once the first movie theater in Park Rapids, The Royal Bar serves a mean hamburger. The old movie theater sign is inside.

Great staff and service.

Park Rapids is famous for its parking down the middle of the street.
