Fun on the island of Cozumel!
I always have fun, fun, fun when I come to my second home, the island of Cozumel in the Mexican Caribbean! From friends to fabulous restaurants to great boat dives and great shore dives and tourist attractions like the awesome Cozumel Pearl Farm, there is always something to do! My 2018 summer trip is almost over, but the memories will last forever. Take a look at what I’ve been up to on Cozumel! [Read more…] about Having Fun, Fun, Fun on the Island of Cozumel!
You should visit amazing St Simons Island if you love animals! I was overjoyed to find different types of interesting animals in and near St Simons. My son in law once asked my daughter why our family always spent our vacations looking at animals. The answer is animals are endlessly fascinating, and important to our ecosystems…. I love them, and since I planned the trips,we traveled to see animals. [Read more…] about Visit Amazing St Simons Island if you Love Animals!
Stroll through Downtown New Braunfels! On a recent visit to New Braunfels, Texas, between San Antonio and Austin, I took a Saturday morning stroll with Jan Kingsbury of SPASS Walking Tours. Jan has lived in New Braunfels for most of her life, and knows the city very well indeed! I was fascinated by the history and color of the town. Let’s start our walk at the Farmers Market, open every Saturday!
I hope you will visit New Braunfels soon and discover its German, and Texan, charm for yourself!
Thank you to IN NEW BRAUNFELS FOR HOSTING ME!
I recently had a Beautiful Morning on the Guadelupe River, near the quaint town of New Braunfels. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a water girl. Whether I am diving in it, snorkeling in it, swimming in it, looking at it, kayaking in it, or rafting in it, I am happy. That’s not to say I haven’t had a mishap here and there, and my beautiful trip on the Guadelupe had some exciting moments, but hey, that is par for the course!
My gracious hosts at In New Braunfels set me up with Rockin’ R, and I was so lucky to have Woody Welch as my guide. Woody is an expert on the Guadelupe, and is writing a book about it. He is a professional photographer, conservationist and fellow water enthusiast, so I was very excited to be with someone so experienced. The Guadelupe is low, but there are still some rapids and waterfalls to navigate. The second waterfall we went through was the one I fell out of the boat on, Clutter Falls. I was cluttered all right! But after a few moments I was able to steady myself against a rock, work my raft/kayak free, and float down to where I could get back on. A few colorful bruises and scrapes, but happy to be back paddling the river.
We were paddling for 3 and 1/2 hours, and we did not see another human being the entire time. We saw blue heron, red hawks, peregrine falcons, geese, ducks, cormerants, and deer on our journey. It was absolutely peaceful and spectacular at the same time. I had no idea it was so beautiful! The water was teal! New Braunfels is a beautiful place, and one you should make time to visit! I hope you enjoy my photographic journey on the Guadelupe!

Want to see some Awesome Travel Photos from Texas during 2017? As I think I have mentioned before (hundreds of times!) I love traveling in Texas. I haven’t made it all over the state yet, and I certainly want to, but I have done some great exploration in the Hill Country. I know I have just scratched the surface, but check out my amazing Texas travel photos!
I had a wonderful opportunity to be hosted by Fall Creek Vineyards for their annual Grape Stomp. I didn’t know what to expect (other than the I Love Lucy show), but it was so much fun I want to do it again! Thank you to Fall Creek Vineyards for having me! I loved it, and I highly recommend everyone go to it at the end of the summer!
Ham Orchard will reopen in midMay! Put it on the calendar, folks!
I traveled to Austin quite a bit this year, my son and his wife now live there, and my first grandbaby was born in November! Adaline Rose is a dream come true! I am now a grandmother, as hard as it is (for me, anyway) to believe!
