North America » United States » Florida » Juno Beach January 2nd 2007

Florida is much more than Disney and water sports! This is our first blog entry - the trip was a short hike through the Juno Beach Natural area (a dune restoration project). Expect more this weekend from another, much more forested location! ;) ... read more

North America » United States » Georgia » Suwanee January 2nd 2007

A couple days after Christmas we headed up to Georgia to visit my stepfather's sister Jane and her family for a few days. My parents sat in the front and my nephew Cristian and I were in the back. We had enough luggage to be going away for a year - more actually. It is a good ten hour drive to Suwanee, GA from Lake Worth, FL so we were well prepared. Cris had his video games, a portable DVD player, and books to keep him occupied. I also had a book so we were good. The ride was mostly uneventful, except when we had to wake the boy up when we stopped for lunch at McDonald's. I know - more McDonald's. But this was a road trip without much in the way of options. He ... read more

Finally were headed for the Bahamas. We spent 13 days waiting on weather in Plantation at the Lloyds. Small weather window, won't have much sailing, basically put main up and iron genie. Sea Dancer i doing a great job with the boats. Karen calls each boat name 1 every hour. This is great during night time, keeps one awake. And there is safety. ... read more

North America » United States » New York » New York January 2nd 2007

Firstly I think I should explain the bed situation in NY at New Years and the complete lack of planning and blind/stupid optimism me and Jacqui had before leaving on our trip. Every single bed in NY is occupied on the 31st of December without exception, we only had the faintest hope of a whiff of a chance of a place to stay, but smiling and optimistic we both jumped on the China Town bus from Boston and arrived in the Big Apple mid afternoon. Not only did we only have a hope of a whiff of a chance of a place to stay but both me and Jacqui had rather big bags to drag around with us. Put it simply if our "accommodation" for the night fell through we were up a certain creek without ... read more

Friday 22nd December Laura - Today we flew from Las Vegas to New York. It wasn't very exciting or eventful. The highlight involved playing a general knowledge quiz. It was raining when we arrived in New York and my first impressions weren't great as we got into the disgusting subway system that makes the London underground look like business class travel! I did get more excited when we got into a yellow cab and I saw lots of "New York" appartment blocks complete with fire escapes. Our B&B is also very nice, so that's another bonus! Paul - We're staying a couple of nights in the East Village, if anyone is interested. Saturday 23rd December Laura - We got a tube uptown and spent a few hours looking around the area near Central Park and Times ... read more

North America » United States » West Virginia January 2nd 2007

TUESDAY 1/2/07 We’ve just finished a week with Andy’s brother’s family in Piney View, WV (near Beckley). We arrived on Christmas Eve day with Kevin in tow. The prior week we had spent in Andover catching up with dentists, doctors, hair dressers, friends and family. Kevin and Heidi arrived on the 21st just in time to celebrate her 31st birthday. Andy Wall joined the crowd on Friday night in Boston. On Saturday, Heidi & Andy headed north to Maine and the three of us headed South. Our week here in West Virginia was unseasonably warm and allowed for some great walks and short local hikes. We even worked in a trip to John’s cabin on the New River. The rest of the time was spent with lively Apples to Apples games, euchre, and Blokus. In typical ... read more

A little blog hiccup as we "lost" one entry and haven't posted for a while. We left Alberta in late September and crossed the border into Montana. After a 3-day drive, with nights spent in Montana and Idaho rest stops, we arrived in Las Vegas for a little playtime. The bus was washed and waxed and we enjoyed the desert heat after the Canadian chill. By coincidence, Alan’s nephew Michael was visiting a friend in town, so we all met for dinner one night. We then headed for Tucson to visit Alan's dad for a month. We had to have a security inspection of the bus before we could drive across the Hoover Dam. A new bridge being built just south of the dam will solve that problem in a couple of years. The massive construction ... read more
