JOY      a noun – origin – Latin       ” to rejoice”

Our joy is found in family, friends, music, books, art, travel, design and food.  We hope to inspire you to celebrate “joie de vivre”…share that joy with others and vanquish the darkness that threatens to cover the world…

We are taking our joy on the road.  Here is a link for our summer travels.   Summer Travel Trip Map.  We will be posting our travel stories and photos.

We beat the heat of the valley by traveling during the summer. This will be our sixth summer in Phoenix and I don’t care what you have heard about “acclimating”….it isn’t true.  Humans begin to cook at 160 degrees…and that my friends can be the temperature inside your car when left in the grocery parking lot.

This summer we will begin in Sweden before boarding a cruise through the Baltic States, ending in Denmark.  From there we fly to Iceland to join Andy Mumford for a eight day photography workshop out in the tundra.  The sun doesn’t set until 11 p.m. and rises around 3:30 a.m. so I’m packing eye shades for sleeping during the day.  The second part of the trip will be back to Nova Scotia until early October.

Share the joy…and you, too, will experience a feeling of great pleasure and happiness The exultation of our kindred spirits will fill with triumph, delight, jubilation, glee, exhilaration, exuberance, elation, euphoria, bliss ecstasy,  felicity, glee, enchantment and excitement.

bon voyage!
