Road Trip Part 2 – The Magnificent Redwoods!

The Coast Redwoods are the tallest trees in the world and among the oldest living things on earth but you have to see them to believe it. They’re found on a thin strip of land 450 miles long and 25 miles wide, along the… Continue Reading “Road Trip Part 2 – The Magnificent Redwoods!”

Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip

You may have noticed I was off the grid for the last week or so – then again, maybe you didn’t as I tried to stop by occasionally when internet was available. (You wouldn’t think there’d be a problem with cell service in the… Continue Reading “Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip”

Over Seattle and Under California

Summer is the time to travel and if you have to fly there’s nothing like Seattle from the air, where on a clear day you can see forever –  at least across Puget Sound to the Olympics. And if you’re lucky you’ll have close-up… Continue Reading “Over Seattle and Under California”

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… Continue Reading “Postcards from San Diego”

Palm Beauty

California Dreamin’ on a Winter’s Day

As winter is in full swing here in the Northwest, I am in a California Dreamin’ kind of mood and remembering a special trip taken to the lesser known east side of the Golden State (at least to me) a few years ago.
