Surfing Del Norte

Surfing Del Norte

One of the furthest north surfing spots on the coast of California is at Clifford Kamph Memorial Park. Located in Del Norte County, it is also one of the first spots for Oregon surfers to catch a wave in California. The locals call it, “Toilets”. Not sure how they came up with that nickname and … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge:Culture

One of the reasons I love to travel is to experience different cultures. Believe it or not…not everyone lives the Western mentality. And not everyone eats at McDonald’s. Well…almost not everyone. Not every 7-11 store gets their deliveries by a semi truck, unloading cardboard boxes onto the shelves. Some receive their stock via a tuk-tuk … Continue reading

Room With A View

Alan and I are celebrating our 32nd anniversary this weekend in San Diego, CA. I had to specify CA. because when I did a weather forecast on my smart phone it brought up San Diego, Columbia and it was drizzling and low 60’s for the weekend. I was so bummed. You can imagine my relief … Continue reading

I Simply Can’t Parallel Park

I have never learned how to parallel park. Sad story I know. But it’s true. I am sure if I practiced I would figure it out, but it is rather hard to teach an old dog new tricks. And why bother? If I come to a place where I need to parallel park I just … Continue reading

Most people I know want to spend Christmas at home with family. The idea of being at home with loved ones and opening presents, eating a huge, yummy Christmas dinner is what the special holiday is all about, tradition. I agree, but…. 2 years ago we spent Christmas with dear friends in Bangkok. Now I … Continue reading

Aliesha and our tour guide, D. are joking around about the interpretation in English, it isn’t perfect, but it gets the point … Continue reading
