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…

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…

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…

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…

Home Again Home Again

It’s good to travel.  And it’s just as good – maybe even better – to be back home again. Back home to the familiar and the comfortable and the ordinary.  And of course back home to the kitties. For though they are well attended…

Postcards from Charlotte

Just a quick hello from a few days spent in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city – surprised because I’m from Seattle and never expect other cities to measure up. A bit snobby I know….

Hood Canal, Dosewallips and Pleasant Harbor, a Journey Back

Let me introduce you to some new places in Washington. New to you, not to me for Hood Canal has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Canal? No, not really. Hood Canal is a fjord, a natural inlet…

Dreaming of the Road to Hana

Not Hana, but the Road to Hana, a narrow, winding, white-knuckle drive through tropical forest, over one lane bridges, with dramatic views of waterfalls and the Pacific Ocean. Yes, this is the ultimate road trip and you’ll find it on the island of Maui…
