Weekly Wanderings #49 – Surprise AZ

Merry Christmas Eve! The BIG day is tomorrow. Months of shopping and prepping and planning will be over. I for one will be happy to see it go although to be honest I have been out of the realm of retail madness for the last few weeks. I'm not one for the holidays and I would like to be able to go to Target without facing a madhouse! We left Elephant Butte last Saturday, stayed a night in … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #48 – Elephant Butte

After (mostly) ten days of laziness in Key West and then seven days driving (eight days total as we spent an extra day in San Antonio) we had a nice week in Elephant Butte in New Mexico. On Saturday, we re-scouted Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge for sunrise, sunset and full moon photos. Last time we were here was in February and the water levels in different spots were different, … [Read more...]

Things To Do in San Francisco in the Winter

San Francisco is extremely lucky to have very temperate weather. That affords a certain freedom when it comes to being outside all year round. Most of the things to do in San Francisco in the winter can be done any time of the year, but winter does offer some unique opportunities! San Francisco Bay Cruises I think one of the most important things to mention is that there just aren't as … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #47 – On The Road

We traveled on I-10 West for daaaayyyyyssss.......  We hit it last Friday when we drove through Tampa. We stayed in North Tampa that evening. Then Tallahassee on Saturday.  Given that Key West is the southernmost spot in the U.S., it took us four days to get out of Florida! We hit rain in Tampa and Tallahassee and Sunday we stayed in Mobile where there were major thunderstorms.  Didn't prevent … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #46 – Key West & On The Road

The ten days we were in our little RV oasis in Key West were simply perfect. One day blended into the next. I didn't know the dates, most times I didn't know the day.  It was exactly what I needed.  We had done something similar for ten days at Newport Beach on the coast, but it was a little different - cold, foggy, without internet.  I read lots of books and watched lots of CNN. This time, in … [Read more...]

Rocket Launch(!) at Kennedy Space Center

After visiting Kennedy Space Center for the first time two weeks prior, Mr. Misadventures and I found ourselves back at the complex to knock an item off our bucket list - a rocket launch!  Maybe we don't qualify as space geeks. I'm not sure what the qualifications are. We love SciFi movies and TV shows, but you won't find us at a Trek convention.  However, we do love NASA and we're following the … [Read more...]

Super Duper 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Weekly Wanderings #45 – Key West

I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.  For my friends in Paris and beyond, hope it was a good Thursday ;-) We tried to go to the beach.  And we succeeded.  We arrived at 8:00 a.m. to get a good spot at Bahia Honda State Park. We got a great spot, in fact we were the only ones there! But then at 9:30 it started pouring down rain and we were forced home.  … [Read more...]
