Lunar Eclipse 2019

I have always enjoyed watching the night sky and relish the opportunity to see an eclipse.  I wasn’t sure the weather would cooperate but the sky was mostly clear so I went outside to watch the event. I was joined by two cats who…

A Stop by Bisbee in Blue and Yellow

On one of our trips to Tucson, Arizona we drove south to the old mining town of Bisbee just past Tombstone near the border with Mexico.  Founded in 1880 and known as the ‘Queen of the Copper Camps,’  Bisbee was once a thriving town…

The Rain, the Park and Other Things

I’m borrowing the title for this post because it fits and if you don’t know it’s a song that’s okay too –  I guess I’m showing my age. It’s been a rainy week in the Great Northwest but what else can you expect in…

A Rainy Day at Historic Balboa Park

It never rains in San Diego except when it does. Fortunately we’d already planned to spend the day at Balboa Park where we could hide in museums when necessary. So I left Bob at the Air and Space Museum and roamed among the gardens…

Postcards from San Diego

We finally got the blue skies and sunshine one expects in San Diego (it rained yesterday while we hid in the museums at Balboa Park) so on this first day of 2019 we headed over to Coronado Island, home to Coronado Beach and the…

The Mountain

On our recent flight to southern California I made sure to book seats on the left side of the plane in hopes of getting close up views of that most beautiful mountain. My husband graciously forfeited the window seat and shortly after takeoff Mt…

Lincoln Park on a Blustery Winter Day

It’s been raining like crazy the past few days and windy too, but when it slowed down a bit we took a chance and headed to Lincoln Park in West Seattle. This park has everything you’d want for an urban hike: old growth forest,…

Dreaming of Sunny Arizona

Most of us who live in the Pacific Northwest will at some point long to escape the gray and rainy days of winter.  The lucky ones are ‘snowbirds’ who migrate south to the blue skies and sunshine of Arizona.  Unfortunately I am not one…

Blue and Gray and Cloudy Day

Earlier this week I found a break in the rain and got my walk in at Coulon Park where the clouds were awesome. So were the Olympics wearing both snow and clouds so it was hard to tell which was which. When I returned…

No not Germany, but the Castle is Amazing!

I finally made it to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World, Orlando. I was prepared to like the original Disneyland in California better. Maybe I do. But after getting over the shock of the enormous size of the park, it began to grow on…

A Walk through Time at Columbia City and Seward Park

Temperatures were in the 30’s today but skies were clear and blue so we bundled up and went for a walk at Seward Park.  But first we stopped by Columbia City, one of Seattle’s old neighborhoods, full of charm and memories for my husband…

The Icy World of Glacier Bay

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week Cold, I was reminded of our cruise last year into Alaska’s Glacier Bay, where we glided silently on turquoise waters under cloudy skies up close to ‘calving’ glaciers and into the secluded nursery of baby seals who…
