Well, what an experience that 8 week sojourn in South Western America turned out to be.  We were stunned by the different scenery we saw each day [different to anything we have seen in other parts of the world], the intenseness of the heat in Death ... Read more >

Each night we sit on the patio - surrounded by a cloth gazebo with black nets - attached to our friends house in Salina [pronounced Sal eye na].   We watch the antics of the many and varied birds feeding from the two enormous bird tables, ... Read more >

The day started bright and sunny, as usual.   The sea was pounding on the rocks near our hotel and the seagulls screeching their demands of each other as we made our way to our breakfast place of choice, a superb bakery for Malc to have ... Read more >

Malc was dreading arriving here and Diana was really excited to see what it was all about. We came via the Hoover Dam which we enjoyed walking over [not the heat] and travelled towards LV.   We saw it rise out of the desert from a distance ... Read more >

Bye bye San Francisco - so sad to leave

USA | Tuesday, 22 May 2012 | Views [539]

After leaving the bright lights of Las Vegas behind we headed for Death Valley, Diana with some trepidation and Malc with great excitement and anticipation; he was keen to know how the GPS   would display minus sea level if at all and ... Read more >
