A Panorama

One reason we fell in love with our property is that it has the most amazing views. Our very best view is of the highest mountain in Honduras, Celaque, but that's only a part of the whole. We actually have about 270 degrees of views from the top of our property - which is to say that as you turn in a circle, for 3/4 of the way around the circle you're looking at breathtaking mountain views!

I put together this panorama of one of the lesser views. I've heard that, on a very clear day, you can see mountains as far away as El Salvador in this direction.

We also have a view of the city of Gracias, far below us in the valley:

Here's beautiful Celaque:

And finally, here is a shot of the family, working on the roof this morning. I saw how beautiful the mountains looked behind them, and that got me all carried away with pictures of the view! I'll try to post some pictures of the work tomorrow!

Sorry if I've given anyone a crick in their neck, from all of these sideways pictures! By the way, as always, the pictures are much prettier close up. You can click on any picture for a better view.

Beautiful vistas. It's easier to see if you have a notebook computer! Very nice to see a glimpse of your beautiful world.

I turned my Mac laptop sideways to look at the panorama view! You have found a beautiful place to live! Makes me want to hop on a plane and come visit. Give everyone our love!
