Packing up

MAOs’ Enchanted Forest  |  April 15 – August 31, 2018

Our stay in West Vancouver has come to an end.  Again I am amazed at the passing of time.  When we arrived the creek beside the house was a raging river, today it is much calmer and quieter. 

It has been wonderful to experience spring and summer in the enchanted forest.  Enjoyed the wildlife of our backyard forest – black bear, wolf, owl and woodpecker were delights to see.  The lost hikers and dog walker were fun too.  😉

Cypress Falls Creek was the soundtrack to our days and nights.  Raging in early spring … Gentler and quieter at the end of August.  

We have loved every minute here and were grateful to have friends and family come to visit us.  So wonderful to share our enchanted forest!       

Grateful today for our time here. 

Our hearts are filled with the beauty , wonder and awesomeness of nature in BC. 

Ready to get back on the road tomorrow with MAO.

Moon River

Savannah Street

After a lovely stop in St. Augustine,FL we arrived in Savannah, GA.  
Early afternoon check-in and then out to the streets…
And what lovely streets they are!

Passed Moon River Brewery on our walk, and started humming as we walked…
Stopped to take a photo of a statue in a park…
Turned out to be a statue of Johnny Mercer – composer of Moon River.

A warm evening for a walk along the river, and through the beautiful park squares.
Loving the preserved architecture, history and plaques along the way…
Spanish moss in the trees, with colourful azaleas everywhere…so lovely.

Grateful today for
a safe drive here – made it through 2 tornado emergency alerts,
walking with my mate and exploring a beautiful place together,
and for a fun set of jazz that started early!

My Irish Charm


My Irish Charm

As we drove from Brevard County, our phones went off…
Emergency Tornado Alert… What?!!
Thankfully no incident and we made our way to St. Augustine.

Enjoyed walking through historic St Augustine.
After lunch, we continued on our way to Savannah, Ga.
Another Emergency Tornado Alert! with lightning striking the highway!

Got off the highway to wait out the storm, and then decided to carry on.
30 minutes later, we were in sunshine, and made it safely to the hotel.
Whew! No doubt, my Irish charm had something to do with it!

Grateful today for
making it to Savannah without incident,
the beautiful place that we are in – so looking forward to more exploring…
and for another city to do my favourite thing…
– hold my mate’s hand as we walk, explore and experience new places.
