Where Do You Go?

Whenever I post photos of nature, this is one of the first questions that pops up. I also get, “I want to go where you go,” “Where is this?” “Can you take me with you?” Who knows how genuine these queries and comments are – haven’t we all supported our friends’ posts in similar ways? … More Where Do You Go?

Sunset Celebration

The husband and I recently trekked across the state for a brief respite from all things home – mostly responsibility of any kind – to visit the gulf.
