Grackles

November 28, 2018 Yesterday, when I was taking pictures in the morning and jumped in the car to warm up, a Boat-tailed Grackle came to check out my camera and scope.  We were nicely entertained. This morning we went to St. Marks National Wildlife…

Next Stop

November 24, 2018 While Regis did most of the packing for the short camping trip we are leaving on tomorrow, I went birding.  It was a great deal for me. We are headed to see the St. Mark’s Wildlife Refuge.  We should be able…

Back in Florida

September 1, 2018 Once we left the Rocky Mountains, we headed directly home without exploring.  It is the longest that we have had the tow vehicle hooked to the motor home without removing it.  We drove from 275 to 375 miles a day, stopped…

Beartooth and Chief Joseph Highways

August 16, 2018 I think the whole west is smoky right now.  We may have moments in the morning where it doesn’t seem so bad, but as the day progresses the smoke and haze increase. After we left Glacier National Park area, we headed…

Leaky Mountains

August 12, 2018 Yesterday we headed to Glacier National Park.  We thought the smoky situation would get better after we got over the mountains in Idaho, but it got progressively worse as we neared the park.  We could barely see the mountains when we…

Trip Planning

August 10, 2018 We left the west side of the Cascades and headed across Washington state to Spokane.  It was very smoky the whole way.  When we watched the news, it said that the smoke from the California wildfires was entering Washington on both…

Cooking in the RV with Smart Cookware

August 9, 2018 Yesterday we took Coco back to Jason.  She is a very sweet little dog.  We had a nice dinner with Jason and Dan last evening and got to see their pictures from their recent trip to Iceland, Sweden, and Norway.  Beautiful! …

Bee Sting and Wicked Wind

August 1, 2018 Yesterday, we had to take Dart to the vet.  The nearest vet is 34 miles away.  Dart’s been having digestive issues and yesterday was going on day 3.  We’ve been down this path many times, so I knew he needed some…

Cashmere

July 28, 2018 Yesterday, we went to Lake Chelan to explore which is about 30 miles from where we are staying.  The sky was smoky the whole way and by the time we got back, it was also smoky back at the campground.  A…

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…
