Our retreat at Runamuk

What I hope will become an annual trek to the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Dusk on Durphee Lake

So far Leta has caught four fish, and Marlo has almost dumped the bait into the lake twice that number.

Ragged Point

“Stilettos and broken bottles, I’m spinning around in circles…”

Balboa Beach

To gluten or not to gluten while eating on a pier at the beach.

Punching their cards

Another zen moment to remember on mornings like these when dragging two girls out of bed who do NOT want to go back to school.

Tanzanian sunset

One way in which I catalog my travels.

Low tide

Watching out for sea urchins.

Stone Town

The final hours in Africa filled with winding alleyways, gorgeous beaches and sweat dripping from every part of my body.

Big Bird

When you can sprint up to 43 miles per hour, why would you even need the ability to fly?

Oh, you know, just an elephant in the wild

They informed me at the airport in Tanzania that my suitcase was WAY too heavy for the plane back home.
