Today's adventure is a trip to Victoria, BC on the MV Coho out of Port Angeles, WA. I am excited to finally go over and check out Victoria. I plan on finding some poutine and giving this classic Canadian dish a taste. Cheese curds and gravy over fries - how can you go wrong? And … Continue reading May 4th, 2018

Didn't sleep very well last night. You know that trouble you have getting a good night's sleep when you are in a hotel or a new place. On top of that I heard a damn dog barking - even without my hearing aids in. One of the joys of being in a populated area. I … Continue reading March 10th, 2018

Change of plans. I loaded up the truck right after work and made a run for it. The weekend is supposed to be nice all over and it will be busy on the roadways. It was actually pretty busy tonight on the way here to the cabin. I wanted to avoid it tomorrow morning and … Continue reading March 9th, 2018

Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9.

We saw a couple of classic windmills yesterday as … Continue reading Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg

Most of the buildings were not what I expected - modern and minimalist. Function over form. We cut … Continue reading Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg

Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England


Cheers from our next stop...London! We flew into London and arrived around noon or so. Not as early as we wanted and the plane boarding and leaving late was unacceptable. We flew easyJet and they were pretty disorganized. Flight attendants were nice but the gate people just were not Fortunately, this was our last flight … Continue reading Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England

Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland


We got some really good sleep last night (8 hours!) in Dublin. We both missed out on a couple of things we wanted to see but we had to have some downtime to get over walking an average of six miles a day on hard pavement. The exercise is great but pavement is not a … Continue reading Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland
