Goodbye 2017, Hello Brand New Year!

By on December 31, 2017

December 2017 finds me in Barstow, California, a small city north of San Bernadino. Why? I’m not sure. It piqued my interest when I noticed its proximity to a ghost town, so I thought I’d stop here for a few days and check out the ghost town, which happens to be an abandoned silver mining […]

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

By on December 15, 2017

I learned about this wonderful place when I watched National Geographic’s “Dogtown“. My heart was forever imprinted with the images of Michael Vick’s fighting dogs arriving at Dogtown, particularly the bait dogs. It was heartbreaking. I thought to myself that if I ever got the chance, I would visit the sanctuary and volunteer. I got […]

Paris……. incroyable!

By on October 13, 2017

It was all I could have hoped for, from the cobblestoned streets to the magnificent Eiffel Tower, from the sidewalk cafes to the hidden Palais Royal. Outdoor markets, boulangeries, des pâtisseries, macarons, fine wines, cheeses, strong coffee …..everything quintessentially Parisienne. With temptation at every turn, I ask you this…how do the French keep in shape? […]

Beyond Paris

By on October 2, 2017

Been planning my upcoming trip to the U.K. tonight. Just booked an Airbnb in Central London for $50 CAD a night. Can’t beat that! I will be staying there for a few days, recovering from the crazy schedule we will be on in Paris during my photography workshop. Then I made reservations at  the Best Western […]

Getting ready for my trip to Washington, where I will spend five days with published writers and newbies such as myself, learning and sharing! Pretty excited as I move on to actually writing saleable articles. So much to learn, but it is all coming together. I may not have it all together yet, but oh, […]

Island Hopping! (Part1)

By on September 7, 2017

Decided to visit a few of the Gulf Islands while I was out that way. The first was Salt Spring Island, which was just what I needed after a harrying day in Vancouver. NEVER try to park an RV in downtown Vancouver. I’ll be paying for that mistake for years to come! A new mirror […]

You learn something new everyday! I just discovered “Boondocking”! I have been searching for places to park my mini-motorhome overnight without paying, as I embark on my adventure to Beautiful British Columbia. Not as easy as I originally thought. I have already been kicked out of a Walmart parking lot! (But I thought you could […]

Tsuu T’ina Nation

By on July 31, 2017

On my return from Banff, where I was taking a photography course with Learn Photography Canada, I decided to stop at the Tsuu T’ina Nation Pow Wow in Bragg Creek. It was spectacular! I wandered around, practicing with my Nikon. I have always admired the First Nations people for their simplicity and wisdom. I appreciate their […]

Well, after the past four months of trying to cram as much knowledge as I can into this poor, tired brain of mine, and spending a great deal of that time thinking I was fighting a losing battle, I finally feel like I am making real progress! I am actually learning something about WordPress, photography, […]
