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.

On The Road Again

After being parked in the Coachella Valley since October, we are back on the road again.

If any of you have seen the movie "RV", you can visualize the rolling "turd" as it makes its way down the highway.
(The difference is ours isn't a rolling turd!)

Anyway we are heading east after spending over a year in the west and soon we will be northward bound too.

Currently we are in Del Rio, Texas near the Rio Grande where the weather is overcast, warm and humid, a stark contrast from the dry heat of Desert Hot Springs.

The scenery is beautiful and different from California; no place is the same and isn't that wonderful?

Unlike where we were in California, there are cowboys in these parts and though they may not be riding horses, they do ride in jeeps!
