Tweet France is a place that I slightly have a hate/love relationship with. I do really enjoy parts of France and the scenery can be some of the most spectacular in the entire world. The French people on the other hand…. Let’s just say that old line about France — “France is such a wonderful [...]
Tweet Recently I was contacted by some folks wanting copies of some of my old photos from a number of locations. Hopefully they end up liking some of them and using them. It did make me go back and re-edit some of my pictures from my RTW trip in 2009-10 though, which was good. This [...]
Tweet I had the chance last fall to head to Grenada to spend a month or so with one of my good friends who works there. I scored a really great couple of sailboats to stay on there though my friend, including a 43 foot catamaran that I fell in love with and found plenty [...]

Tweet I have few goals in life. Some are big ones. Travel to as many interesting places as I can afford in both time and money. Build the one house I want to live in, on the land that I want to live on and be buried on. Write the book that I’ve had in [...]
