John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, wrote, “Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike”. John’s observation is more relevant than ever….get out and enjoy nature, even if it is in own garden! Continue reading Yosemite – John Muir’s Legacy
We set off in early June with our e-bikes for one of our favorite destinations, Park City. The steep hills of the Wasatch Mountains would put us and the bikes to the test. We stayed in a condo built into a rugged hillside above Main Street. Continue reading Park City, Utah
Twiddling our thumbs at home for most of the past six months gave us time to reconsider the way we travel. Like most of you, our international and domestic travel plans were cancelled. Continue reading See the USA!!!
The ramp was lowered. We drove in an orderly line onto land from the belly of the ferry. Continue reading Prince Edward Island
In 2017 we spent 3 weeks in Nova Scotia driving from Halifax to Peggy’s Cove, to Chester Basin and Wolfville. This year we are spending 8 weeks driving the entire island. We learned not to always trust the GPS. It will take you on a direct route that may include a few rough dirt roads. To avoid any surprise off roading, we got an old fashion paper map.

We knew a monster was coming for us. Nothing could alter its path, stand up to it or stop its appetite for the land and the sea and the air. Nothing in its path, including us, was safe or would be the same. It began near the Bahamas and was closing in our hideaway by the sea. Terry’s video below shows Dorian chewing and whirling and spinning its way by Lockeport, downgraded to a category 2 hurricane when it hit Halifax. Continue reading Hurricane in Lockeport
Vacationing at a cottage by the sea has always been a dream of mine. Tall pine trees filled with singing birds should surround it and the shore needed to be close enough so the waves would lull us to sleep each night. Continue reading Chester Basin
Labor Day marks the end of lazy summer days. The video below is a visual love letter from two cottages that were our home during our stay in Nova Scotia…..enjoy!
We landed in Reykjavik, Iceland two days before our workshop and booked a stay at The Silica Hotel adjacent to The Blue Lagoon. We sat transfixed looking out the window at an endless black lava field covered with sage green moss. No trees, no bushes, nothing but a barren landscape reminding us we were in the land of volcanoes. Continue reading Ah…..The Blue Lagoon
Terry has wanted to go to Iceland for three years. We went for an eight day photography workshop. I began to write our post describing our experiences using words and phrases like otherworldly, stunning, wondrous , dream-like, and lunar landscape…but I failed to put into words the vastness, the beauty and why our breath was taken away by this land. Continue reading Why Iceland?
