Tell me a story: October 2019: Fort Clinch

For the longest time I have wanted to visit Fort Clinch and see what the State Park was like.  For most of our trips we have gone as far as St Augustine, and not gone any further.  Recently we did a trip to Cumberland Island and we took a detour along the coast and at my request we stopped at Fort Clinch.Imagine a a…

Tell me a Story: September 2019

Today is one of those months where I have two blogs go live in one day.  Earlier on I shared some time in Central Park, New York.  This blog I am going to share our trip to Staten Island. For every foreigner, New York is that illusive place you hear about, along with Miami, and LA.  It’s in the movies, it in books, you…

Tell me a Story: July 2019

Tell Me a Story: June 2018

It’s time to blog and I am sitting without a computer so I have pulled up some photo’s from last year that I had edited but not posted.  Last year we did an impromptu trip to Maine.  I happened to be chatting to my work colleague about how I needed to use up some vacation time but really hated wasting vacation time on a…

Tell me a Story: May 2019

If you did not read my previous post we are in San Antonio for a few days.  After visiting the Alamo, I had a list of places in the “town” area that I wanted to see.  First on my list was St Fernando Cathedral.  So we meandered through the town until we reached it. We passed canals and interesting buildings. We stumbled across a…

Tell me a story: March 2019

Epcot by night, that was my goal.  There was a stage show I wanted to see and the fireworks display was a must.  That said we had walked Epcot all day.  My son and daughter-in-law had left as she was struggling with fatigue as a result of psoriatic arthritis which leaves her struggling in pain.  The rest of us were pretty tired as well. …

Tell me a Story: February 2019

I have not been for a walk in the wetlands for a long while, so this past week I decided to head over to the local cay for a 2 mile walk.  While it is always nice to photography the birds I do like to photograph the different styles of nature.  This day there was some beautiful bokeh, interesting lights, and cute little critters. …

Tell me a Story: January 2019

It January and my story this month is about the new additions to our family.  Not mine, but Amy’s and Daniel’s.  So I guess that makes them grandkits. At the end of November a friend sent a text to Amy and me asking with we wanted the little black and white cat.  She had found it crying in the parking lot.  The next day…

Tell Me a Story: November 2018: Heading back to Portland

Well it looks like WordPress has made some changes to it’s layout so hopefully I will get this write. This month for Tell me a Story, I am picking when I left off at the last blog.  If you read it you will know that my whale watching expedition was a total failure and we were plagued by fog.  I am picking up from…

Tell me a Story: October 2018: Portland Part Two

I started off our Maine vacation with Tell me a Story and to be honest I have only reached day 2.  Saturday and we were in Portland.  If you did not read Portland Day 1 you can do so here.  Portland is a busy harbor town and I wish we had more time to explore it.  Our goal today was to go whale watching,…
