This is a map 'depicting' one of my favourite vacations ever! We spent 4 days & 3 nights aboard a Maine Windjammer, the Stephen Taber 1871. It was a dream come true, and far exceeded our expectations; to wake up in your cosy cabin and smell the wood fire from the cookstove, and the food...oh my...gourmet dining & fine wines on the seas! A small crew & group of travellers, what a wonderful time, we were the only Canadians aboard, but made ever so welcome by our fellow American travellers! No electronics, just the sea, scenery, sights & sounds, occasional boat races. A surprise night of kettledrum music & partying ashore, fishing villages visited, during the day! It was heart-breaking to have to leave. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend this boat for a 3, 4 or 6 day cruise! not for the faint of heart, you really are stepping back in time! The vacation that "DNS- as Captain Noah said, "does not suck".
The Harz mountains are the highest elevation in Northern Germany and they're a region of fairy tales, wild animals and lots of forests. The Harz national park is great for hiking, biking, or sightseeing. Here are some of my favorite places to visit.
This year's part-shade container garden is brought to you by a Mother's Day gift of eight bags of Sea Soil, some West Coast Seeds (and some saved seeds), and Mother Nature. I included several highlights from various sketches made throughout the growing season. Amazingly, there is enough food elsewhere in the creek for the squirrels that they leave my humble crop of beans, greens, and tomatoes alone. After two years of observing the local conditions and critters, I am still experimenting and learning what works in this garden.
A map of one of my favourite local motorcycle routes. Not an exotic island, but lots of wonderful sights & smells! I love exploring rural roads, rolling hills & lots of winding roads, which are great fun on a motorcycle! Then toss in the smell of fresh cut hay, rivers & lakes and wood-fires on chilly mornings or evenings, it's one of my favourite routes! I'm very fortunate to step out my door, onto my bike and within 10 minutes, I'm riding some great rural fun roads!
