~~ Friday’s Hunt v.2.26 -- "Z" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of December 23rd:  (A) Starts with "Z"; (B) Week's Favorite; and   (C) Holiday.

Pictures are from our South American cruise (L.A. California to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 31 days)(click on any picture to enlarge--click it again to make it super sized): 

These pictures were taken December 20th at the smaller town of Coquimbo, Chile.  We got off the ship and walked around the seaport, down the main street up a couple of blocks, then back in time for lunch.  It was about an hour's leisurely walk. 

This is what Wikipedia has to say about Coquimbo:
"Coquimbo is a port city, commune and capital of the Elqui Province, located on the Pan-American Highway, in the Coquimbo Region of Chile. Coquimbo is situated in a valley 10 km (6 mi) south of La Serena, with which it forms Greater La Serena with more than 400,000 inhabitants." (from Wikipedia, link)

 (B) Week's Favorite:  We love ice cream and generally have it once a day, most often just before bedtime.

When we are away, the vendors generally have an ample supply of our favorite for that, a Magnum Bar.  This fellow did.

(A)  "Z" is for  ___'s":  "Z" is for "Z's".  Lucky me, during my latest 'walk' I found these two dogs, catching their "Z's"

(C) Holiday:  One of my favorite Holidays is Thanksgiving, mainly for the Annual Houston Thanksgiving Parade.  It generally lasts an hour plus, starting with high school and college bands, horses, cars, fire trucks, and lots of clowns.

There is always a name person for the official parade marshal and the last float with have either the marshal or Santa Claus.  And it is all the more fun when we can take our Kids and/or Grandkids.  I don't believe we've ever gone without doing this.

But, ... Here are a few pictures from our latest 'Holiday'.
