2016 was another terrific travel year, discovering four new states and two countries. Most of the year’s vacations were long weekends, visiting Charleston for a girls’ weekend, Chicago for a ballgame, Philly, Montreal, and a bitter cold weekend in the mountains of Maryland “Becoming and Outdoors Woman” in an unheated drafty cabin. The big trip of the year was France, where I found the people, despite the reputation, to be lovely. I fell in love with Paris and will be back for sure.

Snowzilla hit the DC/Baltimore area pretty hard, the Eastern Shore dodged the bullet a little bit, getting about 16″. After the shoveling, I decided to stay off the couch and play with my new camera.
A game of frisbee is fun no matter what the weather.
A black dog in the snow has to be one of the hardest exposures to get right.
Lolli, the neighbor’s corgi, peeking through the fence.
Nandina – a burst of color.

Window at the library – is that snow inside?
I love how these little seed heads poking out of the snow resemble a landscape of trees blanketed in snow.
Lots of textures.

2015 was a good travel year, taking me through 14 states and one foreign country. Discovering things near and far, embracing the great outdoors, tasting many fine, and many not so fine, wines and exploring brew-pubs throughout the U.S (the big trend seems to be IPAs – not my fave). There were cultural experiences, such as the National Portrait Gallery, which I can’t believe I had never visited before, and on the opposite spectrum – South of the Border. I ate local delicacies, stone crab legs in Florida, BBQ in North Carolina, blue crabs in Maryland, and tried whale, puffin and reindeer in Iceland. I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings.

Lebowski Bar, Reykjavik – sounds cheesy, but it’s not. If you are a fan of the movie, you must stop there.

When in Florida, one must by citrus, lots and lots of citrus.
