West Coast Spring 2018 – Grand Tetons, Part Two

August 6 -7 We continued on to Jenny Lake, stopping at an overlook that afforded many shots of the lake with the range in the background.  At these crowded spots, it sometimes takes many moments to get a clear picture without any other tourists in the frame.  It’s the price one pays for traveling during […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Victoria, Part One

July 14 – 16 With a three hour drive ahead of us to clear customs and catch our 12:45 ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, we wanted to leave plenty of time for Jenny Manetta to bugger things up, we made sure we were out the door by 8:00am.  Just before hitting the road we […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Russian Gulch State Park

June 27 – 29 After a pretty good breakfast at the Best Western, we loaded up the car and headed out, for what we’d originally anticipated would be a short drive, but turned out to be longer as we opted to head to Highway 1 instead of Highway 101 for the journey to Russian Gulch […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Oakland, Part One

West Coast Spring 2018 – Sikeston

May 18 – 19 Because we had to cancel our weeklong ride along the Katy Trail, we needed to fill up the days before arriving in Kansas at my sister Bev’s place.  We added a day to Nashville and one to our stay with her, which still left us with six nights to fill.  We […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Nashville, Part Four

May 14 – 17 With some time to kill our last morning in Nashville, Joanna took her bike out for a ride on the nearby greenway (my knee was still in no condition to do so) while I read and worked on the blog.  After she returned and cleaned up, we drove to Post East […]

Europe 2017 – The Legend of Jenny Manetta

August 24 – November 15 As promised (threatened?) in the last post, I’d like to talk a bit about Jenny Manetta, who we’ve referred to quite a few times while we recounted our month with the Greeks, and for those of you whose heads are spinning as I’ve time shifted major sections of the blog […]
