Long before finding ourselves living on the West Coast, we’d been discussing the idea of visiting places along the Pacific Rim. It wasn’t very long after we moved into our Seattle apartment that we started thinking of destinations to try. It turned out that our first excursion was Maui. Our eleven […]

At (New) Home, With a View

With the decision made to move to Seattle and become stationary after two-and-a-half years of nomadic life, we began the hunt for an apartment. It seems strange that a place in downtown Seattle could prove more economical than living in our little trailer in a campground 35 minutes outside the […]

Our Front Yard

We’ve decided that, for now, purchasing a television and signing up for a cable package isn’t necessary. We’re enjoying the view from our new place so much that there’s certainly no lack of entertainment! Right below us in the Olympic Sculpture Park, we’ve watched: Art classes, yoga classes and fitness […]

Photographing Our Future!

So who knew that more than a year ago when  visiting Seattle,  we’d be walking right by and actually photographing our future! The low, white building behind the Serra sculpture is our current apartment building, and I can almost see our balcony! We took this photo in the sculpture park […]

We had a wonderful time in Colorado at a family reunion and memorial for Stacey’s nana (Virginia Ryan), and then headed back to California for some interesting changes . . . TJ flew up to Seattle to interview for a “stationary” job, which was offered to him on the spot. […]

We’ve known for a few days now that we’d be heading to the family reunion in Denver via the California Zephyr, but it wasn’t until late last night that we decided to take a different route to get us closer to Sacramento, opting to make an entire day out of […]

Exploring the Eastern Sierra

Thumbnail image for Exploring the Eastern Sierra

On the ride out of Point Reyes, we began to discuss where our next stop would be—coast or mountains? After a quick check of road conditions, we decided to explore an area in the Eastern Sierra; many of the mountain roads were a little too snow covered last time we […]

A Point Fit for Kings

Thumbnail image for A Point Fit for Kings

Long before we hit the road, one of our most often discussed must-see spots was Point Reyes National Seashore. Our love of all things “beach” was evident by the frequent trips we’d make to Fire Island National Seashore whenever we needed a reprieve from Manhattan. Naturally, no trip to the […]
