It Has Been A Slice!

Well my friends, I am retiring this blog.

I will leave it alive for a few more weeks and then one day it will quietly disappear; no muss, no fuss!

I haven't been blogging on here lately anyway so it will be no loss and I will continue to write on the web page, .

It has been fun but because Motorhome traveling is no longer in my repertoire, writing here is becoming somewhat pointless.

Happy Trails folks and you can still find me at Coulson Castle on Wheels!

My good, horse loving friend Laura Ouellette from Denver wrote to me yesterday and reminded me that it has been a very long time since I have added anything to my Blog!!

Alas, she is has been over two months so I am posting today.

We are in Cochrane, Alberta right now just outside of Calgary and today we drove to Drumheller.

Along our way, this fellow seemed to be waiting for us, so I took his picture and I am posting it for Laura.

I do journal everyday on our website though which can be found at!

What Would It Be Like?

Being in Amish Country in Northern Indiana we are encountering a simpler way of life.

We have always enjoyed it here; the country side and picture perfect homesteads are a sight to behold.

Here is an Amish farmer with a team of horses pulling a corn harvester.

Bits and Pieces

It seems like just yesterday when I posted here last, but then I looked at the date and realized it has been two weeks. How did that happen?

We are in Ontario, Canada and have been revisiting old friends and old haunts.

We have also been gearing up for our son's wedding next weekend.

The days are whizzing by and ever so slowly, the temperatures are inching up. Along with warmer temperatures, at this time of the year, come tiny, pesky blackflies! Argh! Though I have yet to receive a bite, I know it is inevitable.

Here is a picture of Gloucester Pool, part of the Trent-Severn waterway and where my sister's cottage is located. We've been fortunate enough to visit it making the cool weather and bugs not so bad after all!

A Simpler Life

Once again we are in Amish Country in northern Indiana.

We have been here before, several times, each time during a different season and everytime we return we always notice how neat and tidy it is.

There is a lot to be said about living life the "old" way without all of our modern conveniences.

Beautiful Coastline

The Alabama coast, though small in comparison to Texas, Florida and Louisiana, is one of the most beautiful coastlines we have seen.

The sand is white and the water is as turquoise as the sky is blue.

Yesterday we cruised around on our motorcycle and at one point we stopped so I could take a picture on the beach.

Dressed in motorcycle leathers is not the attire I would have liked to be wearing but it didn't stop me from getting this shot.

Texas is A' Blooming

Yesterday we drove from Del Rio, Texas to Houston along the I-10.

Everywhere we looked, on both sides of the highway and along the centre median, there were vivid colours radiating from the grass.

Texas is in full bloom with spring flowers of all colours and it is beautiful!

We passed folks pulled over on the side of the highway taking pictures but I did my best with a zoom lens while Rick drove.
