Heading to the Baja, Mexico

November 16, 2018

We left home only 2 days ago heading for the Baja but it feels like we’ve packed a week into those 2 days. It all started with getting up at 2:30 am and going to the airport. Going through the checkpoint was relatively easy as there were little or no people there but Rob ended […]


Birds Of South Padre Island, Texas

April 14, 2018

The birds of South Padre Island, Texas are numerous and spectacular. and so different than the birds we get here on the west coast of Canada. Well… not entirely different as there are a few species that travel through our neighbourhood on their way too and from the nesting grounds. Birds like the American coot, black-bellied […]


Corpus Christi to South Padre Island, TX

March 24, 2018

Today we went from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island, TX. We got up early and checked the weather. Cold in Corpus Christi as the cool air headed down from the north and the warmest place we could find was South Padre Island, so down the road, we went. The sky was overcast and there […]


El Paso to Corpus Christi, TX

March 22, 2018

After arriving in Arizona (you can read about that here) the next 2 days were a blur of travelling from El Paso to Corpus Christi, TX. We had spent a very restless night as we listened to all the traffic on Hwy 10 and were glad to get on the road the next morning. Wanting […]


Sooke, BC to Casa Grande, AZ and Beyond

March 9, 2018

Recently we took another trip down to Arizona and the first day went from Sooke, BC to Casa Grande, AZ. If you want to read about our previous trip you can start here. After 20 days of rain, the weather was heading for a cold snap and was even calling for snow which is unusual […]


Day 15 – Camp Verde to Phoenix, AZ

November 21, 2017

Not a lot to report today as we made our way from Camp Verde to Phoenix, AZ. We stopped at a couple of places and but basically, we drove to Phoenix as we are flying home tomorrow. Flying home to rain and here the temperature is just going up with no rain in sight. Ah […]


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 13 – Payson to Camp Verde, AZ

November 19, 2017

We have finally come full circle driving from Payson to Camp Verde, AZ. If you have been following our trip you’ll know what I mean. Here’s a link to the first post. After leaving Payson we headed to Tonto Natural Bridge State Park. Having been there before, we thought we knew what to expect, but there […]


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 […]


Day 11 – Tombstone to Willcox, AZ

November 17, 2017

Tombstone to Willcox, AZ is one of the greatest birding areas in southeastern Arizona. Of course, that is only my opinion. Lots of hawks, ducks, and sandhill cranes dot the countryside as well as numerous passerines that winter here. After visiting the town of Tombstone for a look see we headed out and turned left on […]
