Traveling and Blogging

Parked outside of the Casa Monica was a beautiful car of yesteryear.

Travel blogging can be full of surprises.  Readers, my recent trip to St. Augustine, Florida was a vacation spot you do not want to miss.  It was quite a special experience seeing the oldest European city in the United States.  I thought it would be fun to begin a blogging series of random photos and share of few interesting facts along the way.

Travel Log Part I

It was a great getaway weekend of R and R visiting friends along the beautiful and picturesque central California and Coastal city of Monterey. This historic waterfront district on Monterey Bay was made famous by writer John Steinbeck. It has been a while since I have shared some photos so thought it would be nice to give you a bird’s-eye view of my trip. Enjoy.

My handsome son Luke when he took mom out for dinner!

I had to repost this blog with Luke in his vocational class as they tweeked it some so the other link was no longer available. I hope those of you who could not see it are able to with this link. WE have a wonderful public school district here trying very hard to work with our disabled citizens. As a parent of a typical developing young man as well as Luke I get the unique opportunity to see two worlds. I do not take either one for granted. We need the two to become more inclusive though as my heart knows if others see the world through the eyes of the special needs, I believe real progress could be made. OK folks enjoy your day and give lots of hugs to your loved ones as we have no guarantees in this life.

Long Island, NY: A Unique Perspective

In April of this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Long Beach, Long Island, NY. It was for a reunion with an old Army Buddy from my Desert Storm Days. WE had not seen each other for almost 25 years. It was a great feeling to see my friend and to her delight she could not wait for me to see her beautiful town that she resided in called Long Beach. She took such pride in showing me around and giving me the “grand tour” of the area. Neither of us thought that only 6 months later, the whole area would be devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Please enjoy these photos from my Panasonic DMC-ZR1.

Montgomery, Alabama On Tour- A Unique Perspective

I was born on Maxwell Air Force Base in 1963 in Montgomery, Alabama.  I guess you could say I was born in the middle of the Civil Rights Era timewise and location wise.  My father was in the military.  We only lived there a short while and moved again.  However, by the time I was 13 years old, my parents decided to retire there.  I ended up living in a town I was born in, but I never wanted to live there again.  Go figure. I was a teenager and my parents  moved me from Hawaii.  How would you feel?

Alabama grew on me and I still call it my hometown even though my home is now in Seattle, Washington.  Here are a few shots taken by myself and a great friend I went to school with in Alabama.  Donna Noble Burnett is an amazing photographer and gave me permission to share of her work alongside mine.  My BLOG is grateful. Enjoy:
