I was never a person who read more than one book at a time. And I was never a person who would quit on a book.
Or so I would tell myself.Continue reading “Still Reading”
The Conqueror recently rolled out a Yosemite challenge. A mere 54 miles. But something I can walk over the course of several days.Continue reading “Yosemite, Virtual and Remembered”

I was always an avid reader. Important is the word was – when the pandemic hit and we all went into lockdown I found that reading suddenly was not something I could go to to settle me.Continue reading “Reading”
Just as I approach the 40% milestone (and another tree planted) I (virtually) make it to the Whitsunday islands.
The email postcard starts off by telling me:
Hamilton Island is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands. Imagine swaying palm trees, white sandy beaches, and easily accessible coral reefs. The Traditional Owners of the Whitsundays were the Ngaro people. In the mid-1800s, Europeans settled in the region as sugarcane farmers, graziers, and loggers. By the late 20th century Hamilton Island was turned into a tourist destination. Privately owned, only a third of the island is developed. The rest remains in its pristine, natural condition.
Plus it looks absolutely breathtaking.
I continue to make progress on this one, a little each day. 1317 miles feels insurmountable and yet I’m chipping away at it, more than 550 miles already completed.
Wishing you progress on your projects as well!

It was late in the season to be visiting the Canadian Rockies. In a few weeks, ski season would begin – but October was sort of the shoulder.Continue reading “Travels Revisited: Canadian Rockies”
