Sailing

We were supposed to travel down to Key West last week, but hurricane Irma decided to come through and leave a trail of destruction. I’m not so out of touch that I think losing out on a vacation is the most horrible thing that could have happened. Obviously, the people whose homes and businesses and lost […]

Warrenton Old Jail Museum

I’ve been very interested in travel recently, but it made me start thinking – what about being a tourist in my own area? It seems pretty convenient since I’m already in the area. I decided to check out a local museum that I didn’t even know was here, despite walking past it several times.  We investigated, […]

Cruising Part 3: More Island Photos

Because it’s hard to get people to come over and look at my scrapbooks, here it is in digital form to be forced upon you. This picks up from my earlier complaints about my cruise, and then my post on how amazing flamingos at the zoo are. St. Thomas The next cruising stop was St. […]

Cruising, Part 2: The Bahamas

This was our first stop. We only had from 7am to 1:30pm to explore. We had no excursions planned, we simply walked off, and starting looking around town. There are many shops right by the pier, from the straw market and tourist souvenirs to high-end luxury brands, screaming out their “Duty-free” status. There’s a public […]

Cruising, Part 1

When you do end up going someplace, you spend the whole vacation worrying if everything is alright. […]

It just started this last weekend and runs for the next 8 weekends. This past weekend had the theme of “Children’s Weekend”, but […]

A Blogger Meetup!

  The nice thing about meeting other bloggers is you already know what you have in common: (obviously) horses. I’d been following Sarah from A Soft Spot for Stars for some time now, possibly as long as I’ve been blogging, and a few months ago we started talking directly online. One thing to led to another, and […]

Renn Fest 2015

Of course we went to the Maryland Renaissance Fair this year. Of course. We started out by getting food/wine. Sure, it might have only been like 11am, but Dave had been talking up those turkey legs, so there was a small demand for them. Then everyone got to watch me get my hair braided. Luckily […]
