Weather has been a lifelong passion for me; while my husband and 4 kids all in college and beyond, one now married, have patiently gone along with me!

A week before Christmas and I am officially taking a break from the travel blog that has a long way to go. I don’t have time to add on to it at this time and therefore decided to resume in January when life dulls down again. Perhaps by then everyone will be ready to see sunnier/warmer climes again and a break from the winter blues.
For now, it is a busy season. And an exciting one as well, especially since all of ...

Costa Rica and Panama Canal
I’m back to further show our trip to Central America. In this section we will continue traveling south.
Our friends dropped us off at the border of Nicaragua and Costa Rica so we could walk across. There were no other Americans, or anyone other than Latin Americans doing this. Once we cleared customs and immigration (with the “help” of a local guy who was slick at towing us along th...

The three weeks we have been home have been busy ones, and at the same time stati...

Wow, it has been quite awhile since I have been by here! But, I am back home (have been for almost a week) and lots has happened. We made our trek across the country! We drove just under 3,000 miles from Seattle to Maryland. It went fine and was quite enjoyable. It took us six days to reach Maryland. We stopped at a few places but mostly just traveled onward. The car was tiny and with four of us in it, plus quite limited luggage and th...
