Malaga, Spain is not terribly different from some of the other towns we had already visited over the last 30 days. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, but we have explored some of these activities before. Continue reading →
The Portuguese Island of Funchal is 600 miles from the mainland but is a great introduction to European life when cruising to Europe. Each time we have visited here we enjoyed it so much we contemplated renting an apartment for a while. Continue reading →
The Road to Hana is a popular must-do attraction for many visitors to the island of Maui. Guidebooks and audio tapes are available with descriptions of places to visit along the way, pinpointed by mile markers. This is quite confusing as the mile markers start over three times along this 12 hour route. Some tourists display the ‘Aloha’ spirit and take their time crossing the 50+ narrow one-way bridges, and navigating the twists and turns. Others are in the rush-rush mode, making the trip to Hana memorable and challenging in numerous ways. Continue reading →
The most northern tip of Northern Ireland is one of the more scenic places we have visited from a photographic viewpoint. Part of that can be attributed to a visit from a photographer friend who made me get ‘out and about’ more than I normally would have, so thanks, Doug!

Above the town of Crested Butte, Colorado, and beyond the ski area, is a National Forest. But before getting to this public land, one must pass through 1.5 miles of private land. It is hard for me to imagine that this is someone’s view each day. Crested Butte has some of the most beautiful mountains and land in Colorado.
Sometime I’ll become all wrapped up in a particular scene and with nobody to pull me away, I will get way too involved in a not so special scene. The way these three aspen tree trunks fanned apart symmetrically with the other aspen trunks in the background seemed really special. I even returned to the same spot later in different light. Upon working on the photo days later I am now not so sure…. I think it may only be blog worthy…… if that. What do you think?
