Alabama Wedding, Part Five

May 7-15 With the nuptials to attend later in the day, we figured we’d do some sightseeing in the morning followed up by a hike, then return to the house to relax and clean up before heading to the wedding. Our first stop on the way to Fort Morgan, our focus for the morning, was […]

Alabama Wedding, Part Four

May 7-15 We arrived in Orange Beach late in the afternoon, after an easy ride down the interstate, turning convoluted when our Garmin sent us on city streets through Mobile for no apparent reason, somewhat paralleling the I-10 which we would pick up once we passed through downtown and emerged from one of the two […]

Timeline: March 18-27 We would change things up on Tuesday as Jim was leaving for home and I’d be moving to an Airbnb rental on Spruce St near 18th, just around the corner from the Monk’s Café.  Having arranged for a late checkout, Jim and I pulled away from the hotel at 1pm and I […]

Atlanta 2017, Part One

Timeline: January 28-31, 2017 Not content to let grass grow underneath our feet for long, we planned a four-night trip to Atlanta the last weekend in January. We secured lodging through Airbnb in a “1930 Modern Bungalow” with our own bedroom and a private bath. We left early enough Saturday morning to make the anticipated […]
