Time-lapse Ride From Water Witch

Ride home from the Water Witch coffee shop in Highlands. Time-lapse of about 6.5 miles, 35 minutes or so. I slowed it down for the section on the beach.


mmmm, asparagus

All along the irrigation ditch that runs adjacent to our property we have the best volunteer asparagus.  On any given day we can just take a walk and pick as much as we need for a great snack or dinner compliment.  It is so yummy.

Early Morning Run!

Got up early and drove 30 minutes north to Blanchard Park for the Orlando Runners Club 5K. This was a spur of the moment idea when I ran across a blurb for the run online.  I haven't done a full 5K for several years but felt I was in shape enough to do it in 2min/1min...

Hyperlapse Video

About 7 minutes of Hyperlapse video of my 40 minute ride home from work at the Matawan Aberdeen Library. It starts off on surface streets for about 1.5 miles but the balance of about 6 miles is on the Henry Hudson Trail which parallels the Ocean, sometimes only a...

Captive in my own home

Although my recovery is coming along fine, my mobility is limited by abdominal tenderness. I've been on the couch or in bed for days on end and it is annoying to say the least. The other night brought a beautilul sunset with bright long shadows that enticed me from...

Ma Famiglia in Meeker

Went to lunch with Brandy, Matt, Justin, Dakota, Jimmy, Eva and Sandi.  We were there for Justin's opening game 'Cowboy Football!'  Beer choices are sometimes hard, but Drop Top carried the day, and we found that mother Eva reallllly liked it!

Sandy Hook

Here's a few recent pics to keep things updated.  Taken at Sandy Hook on a blustery, cold day using my Insta360 One X2.

Range Call ’04

Getting settled in

Believe it or not, we are still unpacking stuff.  I worked all day in the garage today and didn't make a dent. A few weeks ago I did get my weather station installed and it is operating with almost all features enabled.  I still have to hang the lightning detector,...

We’re famous! Look at us!

^^ Sandi was featured in a gallery exhibition in Denver. ^^ They put me on a gate fence just at the entrance, I drew quite the crowd. Hehehe, actually it is just a new free iPhone app called PhotoFunia that embeds your photos in a number of different and fun...

Great Memorial Day Burgers

Having a beer with my little friend

He was under my table. He talked me into saving up to 15% on some great discount auto insurance.

Irrigation ditch work

Spent a few days building an irrigation diversion box and began the installation yesterday.  Had to break out the side of the concrete V-ditch to make a connection to the new diversion box.  I'll post some 'after' pics in a few days, but this is one taken during the...

We have a new baby!

After waiting 11 months we finally have our new baby pony.  Even before leaving California we tried to get Zanna pregnant but had little success with artificial insemination.  The original stud just didn't have good swimmers I guess. Well, last summer we...

I’m finally back here again

Looks like I'm getting an entry in here about once every year, whether it needs it or not. I never was good at journals. Well, the Flag Creek Cafe lasted until about July 15, at which time we completely understood why the restaurant business is so different from...
