Out and about in nature. The shady coverage was perfect for an warm afternoon in the Columbia River Gorge area
Note to self: Don't close eyes while showering in a rock waterfall shower? I felt around for the shampoo and hit my forehead on the rocks! Oops!
This morning's Puget Sound sighting. I get tickled when a ship, sailboat or tugboat go by and I love boats! Kinda weird for a gal that gets seasick.

The HGTV Dream Home 2018 has been the topic of conversation here in Washington state. It is the first time that Washington state was chosen for the dream home location.

A fellow traveler and I took to the streets of Gig Harbor in search of its "secret" location. We came dangerously close but got deterred by multiple walking neighbors on the private road. I found it on Google Earth and decided that I could live there should I be lucky enough to win the sweepstakes. 😉😂. #HGTVDreamHome2018

Last autumn I stayed at Treehouse Point in Issaquah, WA and discovered outdoor showers. It was the best shower ever! Now I look for them in my travels. 😁

It feels like spring today. Okay, it's only 40-something degrees but the sun is partially out and rain has taken a break for the day.

Two days in Bellevue, WA for continuing education at work. I call it the Orange County of the #PNW. 😂. A nice place to visit with upscale shopping and lots of restaurants.

This train dining car and lounge is a blast! Delicious food, fun setting, friendly servers and a memorable experience. #Definitelycomingback #trains #traindining #Hobostew

Here's a blast from the past! This young traveler in the photo aka me was headed to live in Istanbul for the summer. I embarked about a week after this was taken.

Dreaming about spring and summer and all the fun I plan to have. Countdown to spring has been delayed because that PA rodent predicted six more weeks of winter! 😒
