Rainy Days and Mondays

Uncategorized

It was a busy weekend with crowds of ATVers and lots of dust. I did take a crosscountry walk with Geordie. We came across cow and deer beds and ended up in a large wash, which we followed back to the road and back to camp. Geordie doesn’t like roads even gravel roads. He tends […]

I’m Back

Uncategorized

It was nice to have a few weeks off. Did you miss me? To be honest, I’ve had some thoughts of giving up the blog. It takes money to keep it up, and I haven’t made a cent on any of the adverts I have to offset costs. I’ll mull it over more and make […]

Travelers

Uncategorized

I saw recently, on Facebook, a post from Carol Drinkwater. You might remember she was the first ‘Helen’ in “All Creatures Great and Small.” She had just watched “Out of Africa” and mentioned how young Michael Kitchen was back then. Michael Kitchen is a great actor and I like a lot of his work. His […]

No Beatles but Hank Snow


Uncategorized

Last Friday, I rolled into Hunt’s Point in the rain. Saturday, I woke to brilliant sunshine, and after coffee and a bowl of cereal, I was on the road. I went down to the town of Shelburne. In the past history, the town filled during the Revolution with England’s Loyalists from the colonies. Further back in […]

Spring in the Atlantic Maritimes


Uncategorized

Back in Digby, I took a walk with Geordie out of the campground. I found Lupines everywhere along the path. Purple was the most dominate color, but various pinks and white Lupines showed up as well. I wanted to take the drive to Digby Necks but it’s an all-day trek. The day I had planned […]

Foreign Country


Uncategorized

I left Calais, Me. on Saturday last, and crossed the border. It took a little while as the agents did a sweep of my trailer. One thing I forgot, when the gate agent asked, was the small pepper spray I had to ward dogs away from Geordie. I’d always forgotten it when we went for […]

Acadia National Park


Uncategorized

I drove onto Mount Desert Island on Sunday and to the campground I’d seen on Campendium, but found it closed. I remembered seeing a KOA while looking for camps and used voice commands on the GPS to find it. It was closed as well. I found a worker who told me that the other KOA […]

First Time Ever


Uncategorized

I really enjoyed the three day stop over in Littleton, Ma. Just down the road was one of those lifetime goals I had to see. I finally made it to Walden Pond where Henry David Thoreau lived for two years. It was back in high school when I read “Walden” and I wanted to see […]

Tours and Tires


Uncategorized

I had a great time visiting my niece and her husband. They took me to old town Alexandria and showed me around. I saw George Washington’s place and the pub he drank at. We ate outside at great restaurant, Virtue Feed and Grain. I had Barbacoa Tacos, they were so good I could have eaten […]

Oh Baby


Uncategorized

Met up with my niece and met my first great niece. This is one cute baby! I got to spend some time with her and play musical toys. One of her toys plays classical music, so we banged on cups, shook a rattle, and made the popcorn machine pop. Of course she’s in a “clingy […]

History


Uncategorized

Around here in Virginia, you can throw a feather and it lands on history. Last week, back in Charlottesville, I took the trip to Monticello. Beforehand, I took Geordie to a dog daycare kennel then off to Jefferson’s house. It was a day filled with rain. I drove to the visitor center a bit early […]

The Love Tunnel


Uncategorized

That title is a mash-up of the Natural Tunnels State Park in Virginia. It’s a nice little state park with numerous trails, with most interconnected. From the campground you can take Lovers Leap Trail down to an overlook (Lovers Leap) into the canyon. Unfortunately you can’t see the tunnels from there, you must head down […]

Round up


Uncategorized

This is the update of the last two weeks. First, my stay at the Columbus-Belmont State Park. I mentioned this was a Confederate fort but it was actually three different forts. All three had trenches dug by the soldiers and is an impressive relic. Some of the earthworks are over 12 feet high. That’s a […]
