Something about being on the gulf coast made every sunset seem more special, and priority to watch slip into the sea every evening. We caught them from the soft white sands of Siesta Key Beach, to the shell covered shores of Captiva and Sanibel Island and then even further down to coast to Marco Island. […]

A few weeks back Dave planned a little day trip for us to New Hampshire for some winter fun. The morning started off with us heading into Lincoln for an hour snow mobile ride thru Franconia State Park. The night before the area had gotten a few feet of snow, so everything was bright white […]

Squeezing in 2 or 3 days trips into our hectic schedules this summer has kind of turned into me and Dave’s new special skill. I just added that into the list of special skills I already had going, like spotting wigs on people and being able to husk every piece of silk off of an […]

On our 2nd trip to Asheville  leaving proved a lot harder than the first time. Every time we visit, we find more and more reasons to stay, or at least start saving for a vacation home! I like to tell all my friends it feels a lot like North Hampton, and everyone says hi to you when […]

A few weeks ago my husband and I traveled down to Tennessee and North Carolina for the week, and Spring was in full bloom. So I basically got 2 Spring’s this year, because by the time we got back home to MA, everything was awash in chartreuse and buds and loveliness. Something about this year is really […]

A weekend in DC is not enough time…not even like a 3 day weekend would cut it. Not when theres free museums, monuments up to waahhhzooo to visit and cherry blossoms to see. It popped into my head a few weeks before, a vision of springtime and cherry trees blossoming. I pitched the idea of driving down […]

A few weekends ago my husband and I set off for a weekend trip to Philadelphia. Its main purpose was to see a band who’s reunion had been long over due, but also to see the sights and take a break from the hustle and bustle of weekday life. The Friday afternoon we arrived, it was […]

When I was a child my parents took me and my sister to Yosemite National Park.  I only have a handful of memories from that trip……one being that on the 4 hour drive to the park my mom let me and my sister roam the back seat of the car WITHOUT seat belts.  Yup, we built forts […]

We got to spend one afternoon in Joshua Tree National Park, and one afternoon is not enough to appreciate all that it is. What really shot to the core, of how that afternoon made us feel, was best explained thru one of the first quotes we read upon entering the park.    “If future generations are to […]

The afternoon we spent that first day at the Grand Canyon was unbelievable, and that first night even more so. We didn’t plan it, but that first night happened to be a night of a blue moon!  One of the rangers had planned a night hike, so we signed up. It was more of a […]
