The Olympic Peninsula in stop-motion

The week before Easter I went on a little road trip with some friends to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. It’s funny how you take your own backyard for granted! I’d been thinking and dreaming of visiting the Olympic Peninsula National Park for years, but since it’s mere hours away from home I’d always […]

Only Crazy People Road Trip in the Winter

And by crazy I mean awesome, of course. On February 3 we set off on a bright, sunny (albeit a bit chilly) Vancouver day. It was Judi and Cotty and the Blue Gnu (it’s a blue VW Golf TDI) and me in my Mini Cooper which I aptly named “Mini Me.” I’d been trying to […]

And and Rand Take Manhattan Day 3

A quick Day 3 Roundup! I have never been so full (of NYC cuisine and art!) Oh my goodness, I’m going to need to eat nothing but watercress and drink ┬áhot water when I get home. I cleanse will be in order I think! We had a slightly less hectic day today and enjoyed just […]

And and Rand Take Manhattan Day 2

Here’s Day 2 in photos! Can I tell you I was freaking exhausted I was at the end of the day? It was The Hispanic Society Museum, then taking the subway all the way down to the tip of Manhattan to the Cloisters, then bussing it back to the Neue Gallery (no photos of that […]
