Lighting bugs, light bugs, ground stars at night, whatever you want to call them…they are summer; they are the light we ponder as adults and the magical light we want to capture as children. Sitting here thankful we are home, back in New England…Playing bocce ball and watching the world cup in Amherst, then dinner on a farm in Vermont. Seeing our loved ones and breathing in the fresh air moment by moment. What a wonderful weekend.
Thursday to Tuesday …the new weekend! This gypsy life is something to think about indeed. The deeper threads of conversation dipped into the rat race, the state of society, wealth distribution and the never-ending saga of bills that come along with all of that. These topics will be raised again, but for now the bottom line is so many of our friends have had enough!!
Throwback Thursday photo… Heading back East from Cali…With the warmth of the Spring sun leading our way!!
Local, Local, Local… Shortcake, Strawberries and Whipped Cream! This is the way to say goodbye to Spring and hello to Summer in New England!!!!
On our way to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum… We ran into this super cool mailbox. The day was a bit cloudy with rain drops every so often, but that didn’t stop us! On to see the animals and rocks. 🙂
It’s been far too long since we last posted. And we have a lot of catching up to do… But here is a sneak-peak from our time in Sedona, exploring the rocks in style with Barlow Jeeps.
iFLY Austin… This is a must do for anyone! Ages 3-103 can enjoy the ability to fly 🙂 I absolutely LOVED it! More pictures and a longer blog to come… Couldn’t resist sharing this right away!
We have felt very welcomed since we drove into Texas… All the southern states were kind to drive through. That has only continued to grow once we reached Galveston. The awesome people at Galveston Island Conventions and Visitor’s Bureau helped us to know the best things to do in Galveston in the off-season. January is the coldest month there and this year was no exception, except maybe a bit icier. We planed to go on a speed boat and parasailing but the weather put a stop to that… But that led us to museums, history, ghost stories, great food and an Amazing time at the Hotel Galvez and Spa ( which opened in 1911 and was the summer White House for a year during one of Franklin Roosevelt’s terms. ) —>https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gemini-Extreme-Adventure-Team/420345111395649?ref=hl
We started out of the Great North East to the warmer winds of Eastern Texas, 27hours and 1,600 miles, taking turns at the wheel… And we have finally made it out of the land of frozen nights!
We are grateful for your support… And we are excited beyond belief to be able to go on one of your epic wilderness canoe trips, summer 2014!!!
This new year is bringing about a lot of changes… Hitting the road with our family, to journey the country! Seasonal energy in tune… As we let go of the old to make room for the new!
