Rendezvous Caye Sunrise

My Photography Equipment

NOTE — This information has been moved to a static page and will be kept current there. ***Click Here*** I’ve always enjoyed photography, but I’d say a trip to Belize in 2010 really piqued my interest.  I took two point and shoot cameras (one for underwater).  During a three day sailing and camping adventure along […]

Snorkeling the Belize Barrier Reef

Note:  Resolution on all of these photos has been lowered for easier uploading.  Higher resolution photos will be posted to my Flickr account (alaskagirlatheart) at a later date. Yesterday was the first absolutely gorgeous day since we arrived in Belize a week ago.  The day before was pretty nice too, but the water was still […]

Places to Eat on Isla Mujeres, Mexico

My friend Barb and I visited Isla Mujeres in September 2011.  We rented a condo and although we ate some of our meals in, we did venture out to restaurants frequently.  We used TripAdvisor as our guide and in most cases we agreed with the ratings that the places got, but in some we disagreed […]

January 2012 Adventure of the Month

When I decided to take on ‘Adventure of the Month’ for 2012, I wanted to prove to myself and to others that you don’t have to spend a lot of money and travel long distances for adventure.  I’m like everyone else and sometimes find it hard to enjoy what’s in my back yard.  Bring on […]

Seattle Aquarium and Pike’s Place Market

The third day of ‘Tour Seattle’ is now complete and as expected it didn’t go as expected, but we still had fun through the teeth-chattering cold.  The initial plan was the Seattle Aquarium and a one-hour Harbor Cruise.  I sure know how to pick a weekend for ‘Tour Seattle’.  We’ve received the worse weather of […]

EMP, Pacific Science Center, Space Needle

Day two of ‘Tour Seattle’ was a winter wonderland and included the Experience Music Project, the Space Needle, and the Pacific Science Center.  All three places were threatening to close early due to the weather.  I’m so glad they all remained open until sometime after we left for the day.  I had envisioned the day […]

Museum of Flight

Today was day one of ‘Tour Seattle’ and it included a visit to the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.  I’ll admit this was not on my bucket list, and even after going there it didn’t get added.  The quality of the museum is fantastic, but it’s just not my thing.  I think my friend […]

Museum of Glass

On January 8th my friend and I visited the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington.  We live in Western Washington so it was a quick adventure south of us. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the balmy and sunny 50 degree weather, which is pretty great for January in Western Washington.  The reflective […]
