Hey +Kay Lynn Gabaldon I didn't forget to find more good music from my library. Have you ever heard this album Moodfood by Moodswings? It's awesome and the whole thing plays and flows almost as one song!

Traverse City sunset

There are some beautiful homes on Traverse Bay with their own docks! Could see myself sitting here on many an evening enjoying the view. If this were mine there'd be an open invitation for all of you to come enjoy the view too! Have a lovely day my friends!

Exploring America in my truck!
Introduction

I'm a guy who loves photography and adventure! In fact I've been taking and developing my photos for over 25 years!

After some upheaval in my life I've decided it's time to hit the road and see this great country I live in. I'm traveling across America and photographing as much of it's beauty I can manage to find. I hope I can meet you and we can go shooting together. Let's go!!

I made the Kessel Run in under 11 parsecs! :-)

Great and inexpensive! I don't need anything fancy just a clean comfortable room but this place went beyond those expectations! It was a big room with a fridge and microwave. The bed was big and comfy too!

This place is awesome! Beautifully maintained gardens and an astounding number of butterflies to watch and photograph. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everyday they release the newly hatched butterflies and the staff member gives information about each type as they are released! Don't forget your camera with a macro lens because there are beautiful tropical flowers too!!
