Slot Canyons, Caves and Hot Springs (Arizona and Nevada Borders)

July 20, 2019 |

Had an impressive 2-day, back-to-back jet ski adventure with The Armstrongs exploring parts of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy the outdoors in our desert summer heat waves which exceeded 100°F. But wearing / bringing sun protection, having ice cold drinks in a cooler and taking an occasional dip in the water helped keep our cool. Not a sunburn or feeling of heat stroke. Enjoy a glimpse of the area we visited with the videos I’ve put together. Read More

Our Choice Beachfront Hotel in Tamarindo, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

May 25, 2019 |

We say “Goodbye!” Left on Saturday but didn’t get home until Sunday. Although we checked out 3 different accommodations (… Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas and Villa Amarilla Beachfront Hotel …) in Tamarindo, this beachfront stay was the best. I’ll miss: Read More
