In the never-ending, take-no-prisoners, 24/7 plugged in, forever-online world we live in, when is the last time you stopped to enjoy the actual world around you? Honestly?  When was the last time you appreciated life’s simple outdoor pleasures like jumping in a lake in the summer heat, inhaling the cool mountain air, feeling the salty ocean mist hit your face, gazing up at the stars on a still night, or feeling the wind hit your face on the Great Plains? It’s time to stop staring down the proverbial barrel of your computer screen and put a few miles in the rear-view.

    The Importance of Socialization for Your Dog

    $0.00

    Many people have misconceptions on socializing their pet. Recently Susie and Beau were at one of our local dog parks and a commotion developed between two dogs. My policy is if it looks like it may get out of hand or even if there are too many dogs in the park – we leave, which we did in this situation.

    The Everglades

    $0.00

    From our home base in Everglades City, we headed out to get an up close look and feel of the Everglades. We wanted to photograph its beauty and somehow understand how this amazing “River of Grass” works. We went in February so there were few bugs and temperatures were between 55º to75º. We walked on boardwalk trails, drove our car way back non-paved roads and took a 2 hour boat ride. What we found left us amazed. The interconnections between the animal and plant life with the salt and freshwater underline the international importance of this natural wonder.

    San Juan Puerto Rico is a wonderful destination for a Caribbean style vacation, with some of the creature comforts many of us enjoy.  San Juan is the Capital of Puerto Rico, which is officially a territory of the United States.  This is great news, as it means that US citizens do not need to have passports to travel, and US dollar bills are the current currency.  Add this to the fact that San Juan is a 2 hour nonstop flight from many east coast cities, and that English is spoken, and you have a terrific location for a vacation.

    Caving with Carlin Part 4

    $0.00

    Carlin led us along a scenic hike along the base of a cliff, clambering over a multitude of rocks and the occasional root.  Looking up, there were always towering walls of rock soaring up towards the sky.   We reached this place called “the Anvil” and here we looked up and saw a giant rock formation hanging precipitously over our heads!   I looked around and saw no place to go from here and wondered what Carlin had in mind for us now!  As we took a moment to catch our breath he told us about the rock climbers and how there are several routes up this steep cliff!   In my mind I am saying “are you expecting us to climb up there?”
