Santa Cruz Mountains

I spent the last week house sitting in the Santa Cruz mountains spending time with Corsa: and Godiva: And 4 chickens that delivered me a fresh breakfast each morning: I had hoped to do a bit of exploring, but the rain didn’t make that too conductive. We only got out for one short walk the entire time I was there. Instead, I spent a lot of hours in front of the computer trying to catch up on all the work … Continue reading

Looking For Feathers, Finding Goose Crap

It’s a lot harder to find bird feathers than one would expect. I figured if I headed to the golf course where I know a bunch of geese were staying for the winter, I would have no problem finding a bunch of feathers (an artist friend had asked for some for a project she is doing and I said I thought I could find some). As I headed off on my futile venture, I first came to a large oak … Continue reading

Almaden Quicksilver Park Hike

This past month I feel like I did when I first started blogging and building websites. At that time I had a full time job and then I would come home and spend another 6 – 8 hours working on the blogs and websites. I was basically working two full time jobs. Although the days were long, it was also a lot of fun because I really enjoyed what I was doing (I had to be since I was spending … Continue reading

Most Days

Because I am able to travel quite a bit, it sometimes looks like I don’t have to work a whole lot. If only this was true. I end up spending a minimum of 4 hours a day in front of a computer, 7 days a week. Most days I spend a full 8+ hours. The sad fact is that even though I can work anywhere I want, I still have to work. While I don’t mind working where ever I … Continue reading

House Sitting For This Week

I’m spending this week house sitting which is a pretty good way to earn some extra money when you are a digital nomad. The fact is that I am going to be spending the majority of my day in front of my computer working, so it doesn’t matter where I do it. If I am someplace that is beautiful, I’ll make the effort to get our and explore it, but if the place is familiar like when visiting family, I’m … Continue reading

Kauai Water Spout

We saw signs for a water spout called Spouting Horn a couple of miles from the place where we were staying and decided that it would be a good walk for one of the days were were there. The walk scenery varied along the way, but some portions were beautiful: When the path met the ocean, it was a shoreline scene that combined of lave and sand. The water spout was a hole in the lava shoreline that shot out … Continue reading

Kauai Evening Stroll

These photos were taken the first night we arrived in Kauai. When we took our evening walk, we ran into a sea lion resting on the beach: As can be seen, I was still feeling the effects of the plane ride over: But the sunset didn’t disappoint…

Kauai Sunset

After a long day of hiking and (unfortunately) working on the computer, you might think that a relaxing evening inside would be the plan. You would be thinking this until you looked out the window and realized that you would miss sunsets like this each evening if you didn’t take walks along the beach… Let’s hear it for exhausting days.

Hiking Trail Slasher

Dad and I decided to head to Waimea Canyon for one afternoon to do some hiking. The Waimea Canyon drive is beautiful and is well worth the drive even if you don’t decide to do any hiking. We drove to just before the end of the canyon road to the Kalalau Lookout down the Kalalau Valley all the way down to the beach. Quite spectacular: We then hopped into the car again and made out way to the very end … Continue reading
