Mt. Rainier and the Cascades Guest Blog

Taken from the window by Sue Reinfeld as she was landing in Seattle. You’ve read my friend Sue’s comments on the blog. Recently we were photographing goats together along the Monongahela. Thanks for the beautiful view, Sue.

Mt. Rainier and the Cascades

Last year I received a photo of Mt Rainier above the clouds from 8 year old Ellie and she was guest blogger in July.

Troll Crossing in Norway One Year Ago

Trollstigen (Troll’s Road) in Norway.  If you click the link you can see pictures of the winding Troll’s Road.

One year ago I was on the Arne and Carlos‘ Knitting Cruise going up the coast of Norway on MS Finnmarken.   Thanks to Pam from Massachusetts, my knitting colleague and ship roommate for sending this pic today. Yes that was a wonderful trip of a lifetime and there are many great memories.

I was so happy to receive an email today with this photo of myself that Pam took by the  Troll Crossing sign.  I was able to go and find the one I took of her, too.

Our tour bus was to drive up the winding roads but due to bad weather, the Troll Road was closed. (After looking at the photos of the road I think I am a bit relieved it was closed)

Thanks again for the fun memory, Pam.  I’m glad you follow the blog. Hope you like this post!

Homer Beach Just Before Bed

We made it to Homer on the Kenai Peninsula.

So happy to be here. Welcomed by dear friends. We sat on the deck and caught up, then-

King Salmon, King Crab and Halibut for dinner.

Mary and I had a beautiful drive down from Anchorage today with sunny skies and blue water, snow topped mountains.

Tonight you can hear the waves on the beach. We’re ready for a good night’s rest and more adventures in the morning.

It’s a peaceful setting to sleep well.
