Largest Library in the USA

The McAllen, Texas public library is the largest single-story library in the USA, and we visited it! As you might know, libraries are a regular part of our life on the road. A few years ago we read about a library in Texas created from a former Walmart store. (Pretty cool – huh?)  As we were only an hour away, for one of Robert’s presentations, we knew...

Hello Florida – You’re Irresistible!

Florida is an irresistible paradise of sunshine, and things to do and see. That doesn’t surprise you, does it? Before our  full-time travels, Robert and I had only spent more than a week in Florida three times.  All our experiences were swift, and included the requisite Disney visit. We enjoyed our holidays, as I’m sure many of you also have enjoyed...

The World of Coke

Coke. It’s found everywhere in the world. The unique flavor was created in 1886 and that distinctive glass bottle has been tempting people since 1916.

Four Weeks Near Atlanta

Four Weeks Near Atlanta

We spent four weeks during October and November near Atlanta, Georgia, in the Twin Lakes RV campground . It was one of the nicer camps we’ve stopped at – spacious and well tended – with two pretty pond-like lakes. At night the fountains were lit with a blue light and a green light. We never got a great picture of them, but you can imagine, I think,...

A Taste of Hawaii in Shipshewana

It wasn’t what we were expecting in the heart of Amish country. And it really wasn’t the weather for this bit of indulgence, but it sure was fun! Robert had some meetings near Shipshewana, Indiana, so I spent my time touring the little tourist town. It was touristy Amish all the way – buggies, people in traditional clothing, home crafted oak...

Constructing a Little House On Wheels

Gypsies had their wagons, pulled by horses. And as long as the automobile has been around, people have been incorporating their sleeping space with their vehicle. The recreational vehicle history is more than 100 years old. Robert and I spent September in Michigan and Indiana, learning more about this industry of RVs.  At Elkhart, Indiana we visited the RV Hall of...

Drive In At Dusk

Do you remember Drive-In Movie Theaters? Date night in a darkened car… Can you imagine large, open areas, with huge outdoor screens… the cars streaming in, crunching through the gravel and parking in rows, all facing the screen? And dusk slowly darkens the sky. The smell of popcorn fills the air, a few movie-goers set up lawn chairs in front of their...

Cold, Crystal-Blue Water and Rocks: Tobermory Ontario

Tobermory lies at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. It’s a tiny town, with a main focus on tourism. Summer tourism… I’m not sure anyone wants to be there in the winter!* Robert and I traveled up the peninsula from Lion’s Head to Tobermory on August 28th. I hadn’t been there since 1987 when we came back from Victoria, BC. All...
