Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

It has been 12 years since I got married to a man who got overdose with patience. I mean, really, he is the only person I knew who has lots and lots of patience, not only with me but to others around him. I am blessed to have him. Today is Dec. 12(12/12) and it's my 12th year wedding anniversary. God is good! This is Kong (aka Kovu, Kolu)When we arrived here, our good neighbor saw our two dogs and was happy to see them. She said those dogs can scare off the cats who roam around her back yard. But little did she know we have a cat too, oh uh! This is Kong, setting pretty on her back porch.

A Perfect Christmas

My idea of a perfect Christmas Is to spend it with you In a party Or dinner for two Anywhere would do Celebrating the yuletide season Always lights up our lives Simple pleasures are made special too When their shared with you Looking through some old photographs Faces and friends we'll always remember Watching busy shoppers rushing about In the cool breeze of December Sparkling lights, all over town Children's carols in the air By the Christmas tree A shower of stardust on your hair I cant think of a better Christmas Than my wish coming true And my wish is you'd let me spend my whole life with you My idea of a perfect Christmas is to spend it with you

First Chapter

Image
When we moved down here from Fairbanks Alaska, we started a new chapter of our lives. Now, I must say, the first chapter is almost done. We have decided to put our house in the market and move overseas, once this house is sold. That's all I can say for now. I'm looking forward for the second chapter. Abby, my girl, she will be an international dog pretty soon.

Happy December 1st

My friend Angela mentioned about feeder for squirrel that is hard for them to get the seeds out. So, we did some experiment and as you can see, the picture says it all. At first we thought the squirrel got stuck in there, but after few minutes, my husband went out there to check. When he got close to the feeder, the squirrel had quickly jumped out and ran. Happy December 1st everyone.
