San Juan and St. Croix

US VIRGIN ISLANDS | Wednesday, 30 Jan 2019 | Views [86]

WE SPENT THE MORNING EXPLORING SAN JUAN.  After all, the Summit wasn’t scheduled to sail until 8:30 PM.  The old city, Viejo San Juan, became a National Historic Site in 1949 and was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1983, one ... Read more >

More Puerto Rican Birding

PUERTO RICO | Monday, 28 Jan 2019 | Views [86]

OURS WASN'T A LUXURY TRIP by any standards but the lodging Gabriel booked was more than acceptable.  All of the hotels were clean and relatively quiet, modest places for real people.  My favorite was La Parguera Resort in the funky beach town ... Read more >

Birding in Puerto Rico

PUERTO RICO | Saturday, 26 Jan 2019 | Views [78]

WE ARE SHARING THE 3-BEDROOM SUITE at Casa Aramana  with Otto and Helgor from Dusseldorf and Michael from Scranton, but it is like having the place to ourselves.  The Germans are napping and Michael is off to the beach.  This is a perfect ... Read more >

Up In The Air

USA | Thursday, 24 Jan 2019 | Views [83]

THE TRIP HASN’T ACTUALLY STARTED and already I have something to report.  JetBlue has a ticketing option that includes checked bags — for a fee, of course.  And I believe it comes complete with TSA pre-check which avoids the general ... Read more >

Cruisin' Again

USA | Tuesday, 22 Jan 2019 | Views [124]

I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME REMEMBER WHERE IT CAME FROM — a travel poster for Barbados that adorned my Rutgers dorm room back in ’65.  I don't know what it was that attracted me — wasn't even sure where Barbados was —... Read more >

A Day At The Beach

USA | Saturday, 12 Jan 2019 | Views [147]

THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT THE BEACH.  And the Fort Myers area has a number of beaches to choose from.  The most costly are, appropriately, located on Sanibel Island.  Beach access is actually free but a combination of the $6 ... Read more >

The Same Old Song

USA | Sunday, 6 Jan 2019 | Views [132]

EXCEPT TO THOSE WHO ARE WORKING WITHOUT PAY, the government shutdown is hardly noticeable here in Fort Myers.  It’s not like much work has been getting done recently anyway.  The Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve on Sanibel Island, ... Read more >

It Was A(nother) Very Good Year

USA | Tuesday, 1 Jan 2019 | Views [181]

THE HOLIDAYS PASSED WITHOUT MUCH FANFARE.  And nary a flake of snow.  Except for a few golf carts decked out in lights blaring carols and some half-hearted fireworks, Christmas and New Year weren’t much different than any other day in ... Read more >

Audubon Christmas Bird Count

USA | Saturday, 15 Dec 2018 | Views [141]

IF IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE REPRISING the Winter of ’16, not only have you been following Vagabonds, you’ve been paying attention!  So it won’t come as a surprise that we are in Naples again.  We remember so much we could probably ... Read more >

Florida's East Coast

USA | Saturday, 24 Nov 2018 | Views [110]

WE REMEMBERED NORTH BEACH RV RESORT in St. Augustine as one of our favorites.  The sites are canopied by live oaks and it sits right across from the beach.  It also gave us a chance to visit my sister again.  Who knows at my age, when ... Read more >

Florida Bound

USA | Monday, 29 Oct 2018 | Views [107]

IT’S A LONG WAY FROM THE PLAINS OF THE SERENGETI to Plains, Georgia.  Heck, it took 35 hours just to get to Atlanta!  The RV was waiting for us at Carole’s farm, just as we left it, so after doing a couple of loads of laundry and ... Read more >

Safari's End

TANZANIA | Sunday, 14 Oct 2018 | Views [93]

BENDING TO GROUP PRESSURE (and flashing a smile at us) Omari stopped at the “official” African tourist store, something Connie admonished him about last time.  We shared our little joke as Becky looked for gifts, Andrea inspected the ... Read more >
