Nostalgic – weekly photo challenge

Wigwam hotel, Holbrook, Route 66


The 'mother road' – Route 66 – may be THE iconic road image for nostalgic. The I40 (interstate 40) which replaced route 66 has left many deserted towns along the way, but I've included Winslow Arizona, because it's nostalgic for another reason- the Eagles track Take It Easy, from 1972 which included the lines standing on the corner of Winslow Arizona .

My favourite hotel/ restaurant (john sharp's Turquoise Room) on Route 66 is La Posada, so the road trip to Santa Fe had to take in an overnight stop on the return leg. The bread pudding is to die for even at breakfast!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
