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 […]

Taos, NM – Taos Pueblo and the Rio Grande

Taos Pueblo is a Unesco World Heritage site located 3 miles northeast of the old town. Established in the late 13th and early 14th centuries, the pueblos are considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. It was a beautiful sunny, warm, breezy day when we drove out there. The tall […]

Moab, UT – Arches National Park

As soon as our wheels were back on the trailer, we screeched out of the lot in Wendover, and were racing across the salt flats for the very, very last time of our lives. It was raining and dark by the time we were half way to Salt Lake City, the highway was poorly lit, […]

Burning Man – It’s tutu Tuesday!

On Tuesday, we’re a little sluggish and slow to get going. I go through the book, write a bunch of events down, ready our backpacks with water and supplies and eventually, we’re off. This is my lunchtime list. It’s just a small portion of the events available at that time. Just the one’s that most appeal […]

Craft Beer Sampling: Steamworks Brewery

Steamworks is not much to look at from the outside. It’s a plain brown brick building with the brewery and offices taking one end, and the tap room in a scalene triangle shaped room at the other. At the head of the triangle is the entry, containing a very old wood panelled car, and then the […]

Craft Beer Sampling: Moody Ales

We’ve obviously been away too much and not paying attention to what’s going on locally. It’s only been a couple of weeks since we heard of two “new” craft beer breweries with tasting rooms in Port Moody. And when I say “new”, I mean almost a year old. The first brewery we visited was Moody Ales. […]

Tombstone and Bisbee, AZ

On Sunday, my parents offered to look after our dogs while we drove down to Tombstone and Bisbee. We left early, forsaking breakfast to get on the road, but the temperature was already pretty hot. By the time we drove into Tombstone, we were both pretty hungry and the sun was blaring hot. Cars lined […]

Fernie, BC could have been our t-shirt town

This statue is the original Fernie who the town was named after not to be confused with the current day Fernie who is my stepfather. My stepfather Fernie doesn’t come from Fernie, BC. I expect it would have been very strange to have the same name as his hometown, so it’s probably better this isn’t […]
