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".
I was lucky enough to have a great friend, that won a weekend in NYC and took me with her, and this map is a 'flashback' to that great weekend! I could never thank her enough!! It was a first for both of us, and we crammed as much into those 3 days & 3 nights as humanly possible!! and I tried to put the 'high-lights' of that magical weekend into this map! We covered a lot of ground in 3 days, lots of walking...got the key sites in...lots of laughs & great memories made! I left the background white, because I thought the story was 'colourful' enough for such a colourful city! (and the feet featured at 30 Rockefeller & Battery Park...yeah, those were our selfies!)
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.
Part of a map series I was commissioned to do for the 'New York Hotel Bokning' travel website and blog. Featuring quirky restaurants and cafes as well as all the great sights of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Harlem. See the full range collection: http://www.newyorkhotellbokning.se/
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!
