Deep Creek Hot Springs, Apple Valley, CA

June 15, 2013


Deep Creek Hot Springs hike was my first experience at a nudist area. This was a memorable day for sure. The hike was a good workout, the water cool, and refreshing but a bit murky, and we met all kinds of interesting people. There are two main ways to start the hike to Deep Creek, […]

Memorial Day – Coronado Island

May 29, 2013


I love spending the day in Coronado Island, and the experience starts when crossing over the bridge, looking at the sailboats, downtown panorama, and the feeling of anticipation for a fun carefree day. I live in North San Diego so when visitors come from out of town I like taking them to a few places […]

Maui – Day Three

May 23, 2013


Today we set out to experience (and survive) the road to Hana. Several people told us leave early! Why I wondered, it is only 50 miles, but takes a minimum of two hours to get to Hana. Not only due to the 600 curves and turns, 57 bridge crossings, but this one lane road has […]

Maui – Day Two

May 20, 2013


Day two started out with another trip back to maui’s Kahului airport to pick up Jordan and Ashley. We greeted them with Orchid leis and set off for the condo near Kaanapali, which should have taken 45 minutes but took us four hours. I’m hungry and I want to shower, were Jordan’s first words after […]

Maui – Day One

May 19, 2013


When I landed in Honolulu it was raining. I loved it, the smell, the mystic feeling, the tropical atmosphere. I only had an hour layover in Honolulu before catching the flight to Maui so I walked in and out of the airport shops checking everything out. When I landed in Maui I was greeted immediately […]

Blogging for fun

May 5, 2013


Just to set the record straight, blogging is my therapy and I make no money from my blog. If there are ad’s at the end of my posts, WordPress put them there. The great thing about blogging is that you are self publishing. Your content is not driven by your publisher and your story angle […]
