Travel

Abbeville, Louisiana

Abbeville, Louisiana

I’d never read a southern gothic tale till after a visit to Abbeville, Louisiana. 150 miles East of New Orleans Abbeville is the “seat” of Vermillion Parish. The concept of a “Parish” was new to me as well prior to the visit but it was […]

New Orleans

New Orleans

Hot days, hot beignets, live jazz, street performers, hurricane drinks, and excellent gulf seafood are among things this fine town of New Orleans is known for. They really know how to have a good time and eat well and I admire that. New Orleans has been on […]

Crystal Cave and Trees of Sequoia

Crystal Cave and Trees of Sequoia

A day after we made it back down the mountain from this  Pear Lake excursion and after a good night’s sleep, we returned to the park for a tour of Crystal Cave. I was really looking forward to this for two reasons: 1. checking out […]

Pear Lake

Pear Lake

We just returned from a rigorous backpacking trip that was my first introduction to extreme outdoors adventure (I am inexperienced in backpacking and much of outdoor activity, so this was extreme for me). While I recover, K will tell you all about it here: I’d […]

Mission Xavier del Bac/ 1950 West San Xavier Road/Tucson, AZ /website/ Last month, during our visit to Tucson after all the antiquing and eating far too much, we made a stop at Mission San Xavier del Bac . Initially, I was lured by the promise […]

52 Weeks: 48/52

Thanksgiving came and went in the blink of an eye, or so it seems. We spent ours in sunny Arizona this year where we visited family, ate, drank, ate some more, and found time to get out and about to take in some sights. Cactus, […]

The Strange and Unusual

The Strange and Unusual

It’s that time again. Time for pumpkins, goblins, and ghouls. I like Halloween for the creative costumes, candy, decorations, but most of all, I love the creep factor. I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I can’t resist a good ghost story, a […]

A Day in Valle de Guadalupe

A Day in Valle de Guadalupe

Each time we visit Valle de Guadalupe, new restaurants seem to have popped up along with luxury lodging, more tasting rooms, and vineyards. Just last week we watched an old video of our very first trip to Valle de Guadalupe when there was only a […]

52 Weeks: 41/52

It’s always good to have something to look forward to, right? My friend calls it the “happy thought”, a place one can revert to when the week is dragging or when you have a bad day. Well, we had plans to head to Baja this […]
