Montréal, Canada ~ Montréal is a vibrant city, mixed with historic and modern architecture, and equally diverse citizens. Our stay here was brief, but we fell in love instantly. These photos were taken on a stroll one afternoon around the city. I usually jot down the names of the streets and major locations, but I was having too much fun sightseeing, and completely forgot to take notes. Anyhow, you’ll just have to visit to see these places for yourself! […]
Post, TX ~ Post is a small town about 45 minutes away from Lubbock, TX. This was often a stopping point on our way out of town. There is a really good (in a bad way) burger stand on the north side of town. They served all of the goodies I remember buying at the snack bar in high school – burritos, cheese fries, ice cream, and, of course, a texas size greasy cheeseburger. These pictures were taken on a […]
Levelland, TX ~ Levelland is about forty minutes away from Lubbock, TX. This is a nice drive if you want to get out of town for a while (assuming you live in Lubbock). Plenty of fields and sky to admire on the way, and a beautiful park and town square to enjoy when you arrive. We even drove out here once just to do laundry.

Boise, ID ~ While I lived in Boise, the state capitol building seemed to be under constant construction. It may have since been fully renovated, but somehow I doubt it. Another impressive aspect was the town’s cleanliness (no sarcasm implied; it was unusually clean). I have yet to visit a comparable city, except perhaps for Des Moines, IA. Finally, if you are ever in the neighborhood, you must visit the Egyptian Theater. It was established in 1927, and has been beautifully maintained. […]

Artesia, NM ~ If you are a David Bowie fan, check out the movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” It was filmed in Artesia and surrounding areas, which is one of the reasons we decided to visit. The town isn’t very large, but it has tons of character and many historical elements.
South Haven, MI ~ We visited South Haven in late December. Michigan is cold in the winter, but even colder near the lake. Seeing the frozen shore was fun, but a little dangerous. The shore is icy, making it difficult to walk, but well worth the risk. It is not evident in these photos, but the wind gusts were also quite powerful.
