Dungeness Crab – Dinner Fit For A Queen

February 16, 2018

On Valentines Day some women get chocolate or flowers but Rob surprised me with a dinner of Dungeness crab. Now… that doesn’t mean we went out for dinner, but he delivered six crabs in the form of “live” in a bucket. Rob is friendly with the people that run the crab catching business in Sooke and […]


They Paved Paradise And Put Up A Parking Lot

February 13, 2018

As I sat down to write this post I was trying to think of a title and then all of a sudden the words to a song by Joni Mitchell just popped into my head – “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot” from the song “Yellow Taxi“. It started out to be […]


Life In The Fast Lane

February 8, 2018

Now I don’t normally do life in the fast lane, but yesterday turned out to be one of those days. There was so much going on that I couldn’t keep track of things. I would start to do one thing and then another popped up that took priority over the previous chore and consequently nothing […]


A Conscious Choice

February 3, 2018

Throughout our lives, we make millions of choices and decisions, but how many of us actually make a conscious choice for each of those decisions. From the time we are little our lives are dominated by choices. Some sources claim that people make 35,000 decisions a day. So, if we sleep 6 hours a day, that […]


I Heard The Raven Call

January 22, 2018

I heard the raven call today and although some say that it sounds hoarse and harsh, to me it is music in the making. He walks beside me and in his glistening coat of black, cocks his head to one side as if he hears what I cannot. To me… Ravens are the messenger A […]


Enough Is Enough!

December 2, 2017

After getting home from the desert and being all hot and warm we came back to the rain of the west coast. Being without rain all summer, these downpours are much needed to fill up reservoirs, top up the water levels and replenish the earth. But did it all have to come at once? It’s […]

Day 14 – Camp Verde, AZ

November 20, 2017

Today we just stayed around Camp Verde and had a bit of a downtime day. Went back to the Montezuma’s Castle as Rob wanted to buy a flute after listening to the flute player. The flute is the oldest know instrument and he’s always wanted to play something musical. There is a story around here […]

Day 12 – Willcox to Payson, AZ

November 18, 2017

Traveled from Willcox to Payson, AZ today. The day started off a little cooler at 52 degrees and it actually felt quite nice after all the heat. It soon warmed up the mid 70’s and the temperature was perfect. The first place we stopped at was Dankworth Pond State Park which is just 12 miles from Safford […]
