Equal time for daughter number 2. That refers to birth order only. Not to any of the other things Stefi has imagined. This photo was taken at the Roadrunner in Los Barriles. We were there listening to Mary perform for the Sunday brunch. Roadrunner also has an open mic night every Wednesday with great talent […]

Today has been a windy day with lots of whitecaps on the Sea of Cortez. The windsurfers and kiteboarders are in heaven. Also, when it blows like this, the large seabirds including the pelicans, frigatebirds and seagulls are out soaring. Often they soar by right in front of our condo’s terrace. Another great day in […]

Niki is in high school now. I cannot believe she is 15 and learning to drive. She has now left us behind in Los Barriles to go back to school in Delta. I took this photo sitting in front of the Los Barriles elementary school while we were waiting to pick up Stefi’s friend, Heidi. […]

This photo was taken last weekend in Cabo Pulmo. I really like the shadows cast by the Palo de Arco shading plus the cool colors of the chairs and tablecloths. Palo de Arco is the tree that the sticks for the Palo de Arco shade comes from. Apparently they are very tough and resistant to […]

Hey, whaddya know?! I CAN take a non-HDR, non-sunrise photo! The pelicans remind me of WW-II-era PBY Catalinas. Or maybe pterodactyls.

We enjoy walking the mile on the beach to Los Barriles for breakfast at Martin Verdugo’s. This tradition began 6 years ago, shortly after we moved to Los Barriles from Cabo. Our foreign exchange student from Taiwan, Angel, was with us, and we decided it would be fun to walk to town for breakfast. We […]

I have been hearing from several of you in Iowa that you wish you were in Colorado to see the gorgeous sunsets. YES, they can be beautiful in Colorado. BUT, they also can be beautiful in Iowa. Here is one from the farm last fall in Iowa. Notice the grazing elk. I think it is […]
