Lompoc- Santa Barbara’s flower-filled, wine lovin’ neighbor

Lompoc is a small city in Santa Barbara county. You’re thinking, “huh? never heard of it” and that’s ok to admit. In fact, unless you grew up around the immediate area, even most Californians have no idea where Lompoc is. With a population of 43,000 people it’s safe to say it’s a pretty small town. [...]

Variety at The Front Porch Cafe-a South Beach breakfast

For the most part, we tend to “do” South Beach once a year or so. Between the expensive parking, booze, and food, once a year is good enough for us. Last week, we rented a pretty decently priced hotel and settled in for a last weekend of partying and saying bye to our friends before [...]

A lifetime of airplanes at the National Museum of Naval Aviation

  Museums? Seen plenty. Free museums? And I’m already in the area? Ok ok you convinced me. We ended up at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola on a camping road trip though Florida. I don’t know much about planes but I know I have never seen such a large collection of them in one [...]

A surprising sunset in Miramar Beach

A few months ago we stopped in Destin to stay at our timeshare. They had some cottages across the street from the beach. We pulled ourselves away from our cozy couch to check out the sunset. It did not disappoint. I took some pictures with a lens I’d rented for the trip. Raw as I [...]

Camping at Florida’s Northwestern parks:Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

Our visit to Topsail Hill came right on the heels of leaving the Caverns State Park so we were expecting the same setup (plus some beaches to walk along). The weather was a bit cold thanks to a cold front that had pushed in. We tried to get 2 consecutive nights at the Caverns Park [...]

Exploring the only air cave open to the public in Florida

After coming across an article talking about new finds in Florida, particularly the discovery of a rare work of art, the oldest carving of a walking mammoth onto a fossil stone, discovered by a leading anthropologist in Vero Beach, it got me thinking about all the exploration I had not done here in my own [...]

Camping on Florida’s west coast-Hillsborough River State Park

As a part of beating the post travel blues we decided to take some camping trips in Florida now that the weather had cooled down a bit. Florida has over 70+ state parks to have fun at. There is no shortage of places to lay down a tent and chill. First stop was the Hillsborough [...]

Rainstorms, heavenly beaches, and a drinking session that ended in a broken camera

A day that included getting drunk at midday, fighting more roaches, breaking the camera, and lots of relaxing. Photos!

Hiking in Aliso and Wood Canyons Park

While I was living in Orange County, I knew the best way to explore would be to get hiking in Aliso and Wood Canyons Park. I visited this park a dozen times, and each time I left completely fascinated with the views and the wildlife. On one such lucky occasion, I had the pleasure of [...]
