One of the many scenes I had on a 20 day taxi road trip with 5 young Amish men (Aged 22-39). Now home, before a 7 day road trip to Northeastern USA. It feels like a 40 hour layover! Maybe after that I will be more consistent with posts!

Vacationers on the “Samson” waiting to get off of the boat, after a one hour whale watch trip on the coast of Oregon. We did see 3-4 whales!

I tried to upload a mp4 file of this car driving through this tree! Somewhat WP didn’t let me do that!?! Somewhere there is a photo of my father and a car driving through this Redwood tree in 1946! I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to see this tree or not! Now it happened! This is in the Redwood National Park, California!

I met Ruth on the Mist Trail that leads up to the Half-Dome and Vernal Falls. This photo was on the Footbridge with Vernal Falls behind us. She was friendly and encouraging. I also met a couple from England, as well as a young man from England. I hiked this trail and the Mirror Lake trail in the Yosemite Valley, for a total of 6.5 miles including the walk from the parking lot, and returning halfway to the trail entrance to make sure the van was locked. It hadn’t been locked!

Awaiting the live production at “Sight and Sound” theater, in Pennsylvania. It felt like you were right in the city of Susa. They did a terrific job, as always.

Now is not the greatest time to come to take photos of the clock tower on our Courthouse in Millersburg. Renovations are happening.

Nicaragua Beach

I am disappointed, because we were due to be touring Israel this week, and next. We did get our tour money back, but will have to wait for the money from El Al, until they are up and running. I am thinking there is likely something better ahead for us. Now glad, we decided the make the trip to Nicaragua in February. At least with 20-20 vision, we can look back and better analyze what is happening, etc., and it’s ramifications! Let’s not despair, but look ahead with hope.

Selfies

Not sure if photos of myself are called selfies?

These were taken in Nicaragua.

As we start this new year, I decided to post a photo from 10 years ago! The photo includes my grandsons on the Chowrasta (mall) riding horses off on the loop where they will see the Kanchenjunga, followed by their Uncle, our son, Dustin. They likely didn’t know what was ahead of them, as we don’t know what all will be ahead of us in 2020.

Kanchenjunga

Darjeeling, India has been an enjoyable vacation spot for us.

Thanks to all who are following my blog. Not sure what 2020 will hold. Likely more of the same as before! I would love feedback, on what kind of posts you enjoy, etc. For me, it is like a journal of our lives, but also a place, where I can showcase some photos. Around 12 years ago, I posted at least one photo daily, for many years, but that hasn’t always happened recently. Looking forward to hearing from some of you. I had thought of posting what I thought were my 12 best photos of 2019, but I had trouble making that decision! If things go as planned, we will be visiting two countries, we have not visited previously.
