Matanzas River

October 18, 2018 Last Sunday, we kayaked on the Matanzas River near the Matanzas Inlet.  The river meets the ocean at the inlet.  It was a beautiful day, so there were lots of folks out enjoying the water.  That meant there were lots of…

Kayaking in Florida

October 6, 2018 We’ve been back a month and we didn’t get out kayaking until a few days ago.  We kayaked on Guana Lake in the late afternoon.  We saw some drama with an Eagle and an Osprey.   I’ve been volunteering in several…

Bird Sanctuary at Estes Park

August 24, 2018 This morning, we went in search of moose.  We went to Brainard Lake near the Indian Peaks Wilderness.  We did not see any moose, so we hiked to Long Lake.  We didn’t see any moose, but the views were incredible.  Of…

Elk

August 23, 2018 The night after we saw the wild mustangs near Cody, it rained hard.  We were hoping that would get rid of some of the smoke.  Instead, it was far, far worse.  Apparently, a cool front brought a lot of the British…

Wild Mustangs

August 19, 2018 The night before yesterday it rained, so we woke up to beautiful weather and the clearest skies we have seen in weeks.  It was the first time in awhile there wasn’t smoke in the air. We headed to the Bighorn Canyon…

Greater Yellowstone

August 18, 2018 We left Red Lodge to head to Cody, Wyoming.  I love the Greater Yellowstone area.  It is beautiful and full of wildlife.  It is a large area with few roads.  The distances are long out here. We didn’t have far to…

Post Fire

August 2, 2018 We found out that there were 3 fires in the area within the last two months that have burned an extensive part of this area.  (Here is a link that shows pictures of one of the fires.  Click here.) One fire…

Octopus

July 26, 2018 On our final day on Bainbridge Island, I went to Seattle to have my stitches removed.  The wound looks better than I expected, so I don’t look like Frankenstein.  It will take six months to completely heal, but it’s off to…

Back to Bainbridge Island

July 22, 2018 When we left Omak, Washington, the temperature was expected to exceed 100 degrees.  While we were there, we got great views of Mars and the moon. Because I was scheduled to have surgery in Seattle to remove some skin cancer, we…

Amazing Sunset at Sunset Lakes

July 13, 2018 We saw the most amazing sunset the other night over the lake at our campground.  We have been thoroughly enjoying this lake.  I kayak a few times a day to check out the wildlife along the shore.  Regis went snorkeling for…

Grand Coulee Dam

July 11, 2018 Yesterday we drove to see the Grand Coulee Dam.  It is such a contrast to see the Columbia River against the dry countryside.  It makes the water look particularly refreshing. Sadly, there is no way for fish to pass the dam. …

Through the Cascades

July 10 We left Burlington yesterday morning and drove through the North Cascades.  It was the toughest drive the motor home has had to do.  The mountains are huge and there was endless climbing, following by endless going down.  The temperature rose significantly as…
