South Dakota

August 22, 2015 The dogs handled sleeping in the tent surprisingly well. Jack was happily reunited with his blankie girlfriend even though he had figured out how to squeeze himself into the gap between the front and back seats in the car where I kept the blankets. Leo kept trying to climb onto my inflatable […]

August 21, 2015 I had a bit of a dilemma this morning when I woke up.  I have an uncle and his family in Nebraska that I haven’t seen in forever and I had planned to head down that way. I had called them when I had an idea of when I’d be passing through […]

An Adventure…without Dawgs

I fancy myself a bit of a runner.  I am not fast and I only completed my first marathon last October.  I do not run a lot of races but I have done a few over the past couple of years as this is something that I have adopted somewhat late in life.  Last year […]

A Brief Interlude

I am going to take a break from recounting our past adventures to tell of a more recent one, an adventure more in line with what this blog (and the associated Instagram, Facebook, Twitter accounts) are all about. I had heard of a “barkery” just over an hour away in Hamilton.  A place where one […]

With the car packed up we began our journey back to Ontario.  After stopping to let a duck cross […]

North Through The Catskills

April 28, 2015 The Hotel Strasburg was lovely and quaint and just like staying at grandma’s house if grandma was living in the house her mother was born in. A light breakfast and off we went. I asked about a place to get a good cup of coffee and was directed to a cafe around […]

Homeward Bound

April 27, 2015 On our way home. The Days Inn had a continental breakfast so no waffle this morning. It made me sad. Initially the plan had been to follow the coast back north but there were just so many CITIES in the way. It’s not that I don’t like visiting cities; it’s just when I […]
