Summer 2022

Shore to Shore! I was on the Big Island of Hawaii the latter part of May. The upper left photo shows the scenic southernmost point of the United States. Tropical forests, lava fields, dolphin watching from our lanai, and snorkeling filled my days. While my snorkeling focused on sea turtles I also had a chance for a night snorkel with manta rays!

Continuing the ocean theme, two weeks of June were spent on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off one of our most eastern states, Massachusetts. After missing my annual trip for a couple of years, it was nice to be back.

These travels have provided lots of new inspiration.

Spring 2022


Spring is my favorite season. The flowers start blooming, the hummingbirds return, and it is green again. We’ve had a wet and cold spring so the season has unfolded slowly like a concerto’s adagio movement.

The end of February gave me a chance to see the beginning of the sandhill crane migration along the Platte River in Nebraska (35,000 cranes.) If you have not seen the sandhill crane migration, it is one of the earth’s great migrations. This year the March 21 sandhill crane count was 625,900 birds in the Central Platte River Valley.
