San Diego – Nature

While on my trip to San Diego, I was not only able to enjoy seeing art, but I also was able to enjoy the nature there, as well as the beauty of the coast.

Turning Over a New Leaf

“You are out of order!” someone says as the gavel hits the block. This is what I am imagining in my head right now as I am posting events out of order here.

San Diego - Art Museum

I was only going to be gone five days. But the weather in San Diego was going to be warmer than it had been in Boise. I had to dig out some shorts and that would mean some sandals, too. There was also an artist reception and gallery walk and talk to attend and I needed something nicer to wear, along with nicer shoes.

With clothing choices made, I decided to try to get everything into my regular sized backpack, knowing the plane would be small and I didn’t want to pay to check a bag. It was tight.

Today is the big day for the eclipse. Idaho is in the path of totality. Boise, itself, is only 99.5% of totality, but that is good enough for us. We don’t want to get into the crowds of people that are at the places of complete totality.

A Trip to Canada

Several weeks ago we packed up a cooler, threw our luggage in the car and set off on the long drive up to Canada (two days). We met my parents outside of Banff in Canmore and stayed for three days before heading back home. The only thing we really did was hike and soak our bodies in the hot tub. No shopping, except at the grocery store.
