Jason’s friends Sam and Mike invited us on vacation to Mexico’s Pacific coast. It was my first time meeting Sam and Mike and my first time in Mexico! From Vallarta, we took a guided hike through a hilly jungle and along a coastline- Boca de Tomatlan, to Playa Los Caballos (Horse Beach), to Las Animas. […]
Extremely thankful to have spent Memorial Day weekend at the beaches – kayaking thru mangroves covered in tiny crabs and spiders, sifting for shark teeth, and holding sea creatures. Jason’s friend Spinach showed us so many cool, fun things!
Stops on the way back home! Boyett’s! Hong Kong Willie’s Muffler Man with wasp balls! Haaaa! I loved Buc-ee’s, Jason did NOT.
I’ve been to Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden a few times now and every visit is special. This time, we stayed at the bungalow right on the property– which gives you unlimited access to the garden since it’s right in the backyard. Listened to Elvis at the chapel under a full moon, ate VERY WELL, I […]
Quick stop back at the Rock Garden, giants stomping around Lilliput.
After Amicalola Falls, we went to the Bigfoot Museum! A large permanant collection of genuine Bigfoot artifacts, life-sized dioramas, sighting maps, a theater and a room that is all Boggy Creek! LOL, the feces sample was “collected while steaming warm.”

Like Cloudland, this is a spot I repeatedly end up in times of major self-doubt, confusion, loss, or heartbreak. Most recently, I made it out there in time to see a gloomy sunset and let my brain empty out […]
July 2017 Known as “The Happiest Place in Pennsylvania,” Randy Gilson’s Pittsburgh home and public landmark really is a mood-lifting rainbow. The courtyard is packed with recycled art treasure. It’s that rare type of art that succeeds at being for everyone while still feeling deeply special.
2020, 2018, 2016 A striking granite monument on a lonely hill in Elberton. I like to think of the Guidestones as my state’s own Doomsday Stonehenge, and it felt like a fine time to revisit them. I drove out into a clear, black-skied pre-dawn to catch the sunrise. As the light started to creep in, […]
