Got me looking... another picture from overhead. Yes sir eee... you would be on the water front. Think they moved the MT where the NEX is now to partually fill. But more had to come from somewhere.

Better words once again. It was a really pretty day and watching the kids on the rings at the end of the day was great.
This post is a little late. Somehow it was hidden amongst all the other posts I've made in the last few months...we've been busy! In late November 2015, we packed our lunches and made our way toward that beauty....Fuji-San!...

I think I would have enjoyed the lights at the rice patties. Looks like a real nice day.

His big mouth and bombastic attitude has found a way to disrupt his "winning" ways. 
U.S. Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign appealed to Capitol Hill for support on Monday as his attacks on the Muslim parents of a decorated American soldier killed in Iraq drew sharp rebukes from fellow party members.

Fiscal responsibility means providing a budget where spending is LESS than revenue. We do it tomorrow NEVER happens!!! They don't run their house that way, they shouldn't run the government that way either.

Outstanding once again. Thanks for the visual and personal trip.
We decided to spend our final day in Southern Japan exploring Miyajima (officially named Itsukushima). I was pretty excited to get my feet onto this island, but I didn't realize just how much I would love exploring this plac...

If the loudest voice wins the Republican side, I'm going to need better noise cancellation headphones.
Donald Trump is defending Russian President Vladimir Putin against allegations that he has given orders to kill journalists in his country, and adds “you're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty,” which is an American thing, not Russian. Trump-screengrab-ABC ...

Three bedroom, 1 bath accommodation. In a very good location to visit temples and shrines in Kyoto. Close to a train station and buses. Use Japan Rail PASMO get anywhere on the city. We used this as a home away from home for four nights. Frig, stove, broiler, shower, tub, 2 real beds and futons enough to sleep six. It met our needs most excellently.

Only spent one night, but this new hotel was outstanding. Clean room, great fitness room, good complementary breakfast. In a quiet area of town with new buildings all around.

We stayed at the Intrepid's Lodge and had an excellent experience. The Tents we stayed in were first class with an en-suite facility that all our needs. The food and service was great. I highly suggest that April is a great time to visit the reserve. We were up close and personal with all the wildlife that the reserve has to offer. It was a wonderful start to our two week Kenyan Safari.

What a find. We arrived at 7pm without a reservation. But were told we could get served now in the bar area. Sat, ordered and served in less than 20 minutes. Outstanding shrimp and grits and lime grilled shrimp. Go the next time you want a great meal.

It is up a very long and rough dirt road but is shown as a jewel of a resort when we arrived. You are at 7,000 ft and the air was clear and dry. All the services were great with a room that was down a path but on the doorstep of nature. I highly recommend the Lodge as a place to stay on your Kenyan Safari.

Top notch resort with outstanding service, food and views. We spent the day just on the property and enjoyed everything. It was a highlight of our Kenyan Safari.
