Nicaragua Part 1


A few weeks have passed since we got home but in many ways I am still trying to adjust to being home. I can't believe that it is nearly Thanksgiving and we are thinking of icy roads and hearing Christmas music. My head is still very far south of here, in the tropics of Central America, and high in the Andes mountains.

The three weeks we have been home have been busy ones, and at the same time stati...

Less than three weeks ago we returned home from our trip across America. Now, in just four more days we leave for another trip; this time South of America. This is going to be an epic trip for us. Mr. PSP and our son that is still living with us, and I are going.

This weekend we are leaving for a three + week trip to many points South. It is rooted in the fact that our son is still in Nicaragua. We will fly down to see h...

We drove just under 3,000 miles from Seattle to Maryland. It went fine and was quite enjoyable. It took us six days to reach Maryland. We stopped at a few places but mostly just traveled onward. The car was tiny and with four of us in it, plus quite limited luggage and th...

Changes Underway

Today is a good day to write about the next phase of things, as it is a very different day here than we have had in a long while. A heavy overcast is overhead, and it really rained during the night. In about six hours we received .80” rain. Only two days ago it was 99 degrees here. Yesterday dropped to 82 (only because the sun broke out for awhile in the afternoon, the rest of the day was cooler than that and cloudy) and then that rai...

Mid Summer in the Pac NW

A HOT day is forecast here for us today. It could end up in the middle 90’s. It is starting out on track for that forecast. The low this morning has only been 61 – I think without checking that last night was maybe the warmest of the year. The sunrise is through a filter of haze (smoke?) that is making the early sun a blood red color, which also can portend the “flames” of a hot day ahead.

Another busy weekend comple...
