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


Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, Co

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is in southern Colorado, 1.5 hours south of Salida, CO, where we are staying. It contains the tallest dunes in North America. Established September 13, 2004, it just celebrated it’s 12th birthday. It’s a small park, made up mostly of the dunes and creek and beach that lay […]


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 […]


Bellingham, WA – Schweinhaus Biergarten

The Schweinhaus is celebrating it’s 2 year anniversary. This isn’t the sort of place you have a tasting flight. Everybody was drinking 1 litre mugs. Harold and I probably looked cute with our 0.3 litre glasses, Veltins Pilsner on the left and Everybody’s Logger Lager on the right – both great beers. I belatedly realized Schwein […]


Bellingham, WA – Aslan Brewery

Aslan Brewing Co. is in downtown Bellingham, a block from the Community Food Co-op on the corner of Forest and Magnolia streets. We made it here just 6 minutes before happy hour was over so we put in our food order quickly. They were out of Portbello fries, so we opted for: Waffle Fry Poutine – […]


Bellingham, WA – Kulshan Brewing Company

Coconut Kennys is a local chain of pizza joints with locations in Bellingham, Burlington, Ferndale, and Sedro Woolley. They serve some of the best deep dish pizza I’ve ever tasted. Just a half block from Trader Joe’s, we’ve gone by this place a few thousand times, but never stopped in until today. Boy, were we […]
