We took a walk this morning from the campground over to the city park and back around through the hatchery. Had fun feeding the fish like so many thousands of others have done this summer. Couldn’t help but catch a short video of this little fairy enjoying life and her time with Mommy & Daddy … Continue reading Bless the Simple Things

As I’ve said before, we love seeing new sights but more than that, we so enjoy meeting all these fascinating people and listening to their stories.

We’re closing in on 2 full years traveling and living in our “classic” 2002 Airstream diesel pusher motorhome .. and we love it. We bought her as a pre-owned motorhome from an older couple in W.
