A Look Back

As we embrace a few changes in our life, we thought we would share a few highlights from recent travels to begin our new blogging effort. Hopefully, you won’t be too bored as we sort out how things work and how we want them to look.

Your suggestions would be most welcome!

Since we are avid birders, there is a more than probable chance this “new” blogging thing will still include more than its fair share of bird images. (Today’s post will be short on birds as we wanted to highlight locations.) Our hope is to merge more information and photographs about habitat, environment, creatures other than birds and what we’ll call “local flavor” – history, cuisine, life.

Thank you for staying with us or, if you’re new here, welcome aboard!
