Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who only dream at night. – Edgar Allan Poe

I am the wind, he is the wall

The man in the RV next to us sweeps the sand from his pad three times a day. Morning, noon, and night, on a schedule. What I see as a lovely encroachment of the beach melding the two of us together, he sees as a mess that needs to be pushed back. I said to […]

Lana Del Rey sings to me in Playa del Rey

  “I was always an unusual girl. My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality. Just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean.”  -Lana del Rey  

Anza Borrego wants me dead

The desert wants me dead. The wind blows in , and my synapses go crazy. Last year had me fainting and falling into walls til I was sure I was having a stroke. Doctor took one look in my ears and told me I had water in there. “Spring super bloom causes this!” he said. […]

La Push, Washington – the land of werewolves and vampires

My daughter was the perfect age to be caught up in the whole Twilight craze. As a young teen, they were her introduction to the realm of young adult horror and fantasy fiction. She read all the books, and saw all the movies. She was there on the upswing when Twilight was the most wonderful thing […]

Port Townsend, WA – Fort Worden State Park

Washington State parks are impossible to get into in the summer, unless you pre-book, which we hate to do. We felt lucky enough to get into the marina RV park, but we had to go over and see what we were missing on the other side of town. It’s a gorgeous little park, with gorgeous sandy […]

Port Townsend, WA

Originally named “Port Townshend” for the Marquis of Townshend by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, it was also called the “City of Dreams” with the thought that it would be the largest harbour on the US west coast. Officially settled in 1851, many of the homes and buildings reflect the Victorian times of the city’s […]

Sequim, WA – Pokemon makes friends and enemies

Sequim, pronounced Skwim, is a little town along the the upper coast of the Olympic Peninsula. Known as the “Lavender Capital of North America”, it’s a sleepy little town full of Chinese restaurants and little craft galleries. We were in town to see what it offered, but more so, to walk around and catch some creatures for […]

Story: That’s how a girl does it!

When I was in Grade 4, we had to write a list of instructions for how to make something. The teacher used “Building a Go-kart” as an example. This just happened to be my obsession at the time. It’s how I spent all my off hours with the neighbourhood boys – I was in grade […]

Bellingham, WA – Silver Reef Casino

We finally got back on the road! I gave Harold a day off after returning from Hungary, and we left Sunday afternoon. The Silver Reef Casino in Bellingham has been home the last few days, stocking up on groceries, visiting breweries, catching Pokemon, and getting used to the new motorhome. It was a very short drive […]
