August 30th is here, and…

…and it’s National Beach Day! Happy to say that I’m heading out in a few hours to get in on the party! If you’re anywhere near the coast–any coast–I hope you’ll get some sand in your shoes today. That’s my plan exactly! Just threw… Continue Reading “August 30th is here, and…”

Two Nights at Jetty Park

Because of work commitments, our vacations are generally of the weekend variety. Which may or may not actually fall on a weekend, by the way. In our most recent getaway, we had occasion to camp for two nights at Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral.… Continue Reading “Two Nights at Jetty Park”

It’s Only Three Weeks

It’s only three weeks until we set out on another camping adventure. This time it will be Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The park that’s well-known for — among other things — being very, very close to where the Cruise Ships launch in… Continue Reading “It’s Only Three Weeks”

Quick Trip Back to the Beach

It had been about three months since I had made a beach visit. And that’s way too long. Because it’s been difficult — as well as risky, of course — to get to the shore, I’ve been eager to get some sand in my… Continue Reading “Quick Trip Back to the Beach”

Earth-lovers are smiling today

The Supreme Court has ruled that a Utility Co. providing water to Maui County must stop injecting contaminated wastewater into the ground where it eventually reaches the sea. Because we’re… Continue Reading “Earth-lovers are smiling today”

A Quick Look Back Over Some…

I did want to take a quick look back over some of the outdoor fun I had this year. Although I would have loved to have had even more outdoor fun, I had plenty of it in 2019. Less than I’d like but undoubtedly… Continue Reading “A Quick Look Back Over Some…”

Beautiful Beach, Good Weather and No Shells

Wrapped up a fine and long-overdue trip to Cocoa Beach recently. I love the beach, and the City of Cocoa Beach is always a pleasure to visit. And yes, the weather was near-perfect. But for whatever reason, it was tough finding shells. Now, I… Continue Reading “Beautiful Beach, Good Weather and No Shells”

Canaveral National Seashore in Dorian’s Wake

Made another trip out to the Canaveral National Seashore yesterday and it was a bit different. It was our first visit since Hurricane Dorian passed by, skirting our coastline. Although the storm never got closer than about 50 miles offshore, the unmistakable tell that… Continue Reading “Canaveral National Seashore in Dorian’s Wake”
