Between September 27th and October 28th, 2018, Carol and I took a trip to the UK to visit friends and relatives, and to see where our family came from. It was a wonderful trip and we want to go back again, soon. This is a review of the trip, sharingContinue Reading

We’ve just returned from a nice, relaxing week in Hilton Head.  It was interesting seeing how the town coped with Hurricane Matthew.  As we travelled around, there were trees down everywhere.  I’m sure it will be a long time before everything is cleaned up. Below is a collection of photographsContinue Reading

We left home very early Saturday morning for our October trip south to Hilton Head.  Saturday was a fairly uneventful trip southward (927 km) to Cincinnati, Ohio. Our first real adventure took place on Sunday when we went through the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina.  Along theContinue Reading

It’s February 6th and we’ve finally arrived in Mountain View.  The trip was largely uneventful, having driven through South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. We drove I-20 from end to end, 1,539 miles.  We were surprised at the vast expanses of nothingness, as wellContinue Reading

We had a lovely, sunny day today, with temperatures up to 9°C.  We drove to the outlet malls, just to see if there was anything interesting.  Travelling with the Miata, there is precious little space for purchases.  As we thought, we found nothing worth looking at, particularly with the USDContinue Reading

We left Peterborough on Wednesday night after Carol finished work.  We thought that perhaps we’d get a few hours behind us and stop for the night in Fort Erie.  However, the weather had other ideas.  When we arrived at the border, we checked the weather reports for the route downContinue Reading

Over the last couple of weeks, Carol and I took a trip to Canada’s east coast, visiting Quebec City along the way.  We made stops in Charlottetown and Baddeck before driving the Cabot Trail and hiking some of the trails.  Coming home, we travelled through Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, andContinue Reading

We’ve returned safely from our cruise in the Eastern Mediterranean. It was a wonderful 15 days and we would very much like to return. The weather was generally good; we were rained on only for a short while in Pompeii. Rome was quite cold, requiring jackets and gloves, as wellContinue Reading
