Colorado Road Trip: Garden of the Gods

It was time for us to leave Colorado Springs and head to our next city on this 2-week trip – Denver. But before arriving, we made one major stop at Garden of the Gods. When we initially mentioned this trip to family members, the first suggestion […]

Colorado Road Trip: Cheyenne Mountain State Park

The beginning of a 2 week Colorado roadtrip: Great Sand Dunes National Park

{ Did I mention that we moved back to Texas?? It’s true. As much as we LOVE the outdoor scene in Florida, our family and friends are here – and at the end of the day that is what makes both of us happiest when we […]

Ride 4 the Animals – Dunedin, FL

Ride 4 the Animals – Dunedin, FL

  When I found a bike ride that supported local animal shelters, it didn’t take much for me to get on board. “Ride for the Animals” offers 3 different distance options, each with a cute and clever dog name: a 62 Mile “Mastiff” Route, a 31 […]

As some of you may, or may not know, Tony and I have recently moved our “home base” from Florida back to Texas. Among a number of reasons for the move, the main one was for us to be closer to family and friends while we […]
