Inspire our future generation, this is what I want to do 🙌
INTO • THE • BLUE
From the white sandy secluded beaches surrounding Porky Beach Retreat to the untamed rocky cliffs down south, the Island’s diverse coastline will awe and inspire you 🌊 ✨
Thanks Minnesota, it has been an awesome visit home. I enjoyed getting new snaps, reconnected with a childhood friend, got hugs from 3 of my nieces, watched some hockey, indulged on my sister’s homemade English Muffins (did you know they are fried, not baked?), and learned a lot about the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Does a trip get any better than that? 😂 PS: a question for you all - should I put myself in more of my pictures? Or are they better without? Feel free to be honest!
Living for these November days💫
Let’s go for a wander.
There’s a great little part of the Lizard that never gets the attention that Kynance Cove or Lizard Point does. But the coastline between Kynance and Mullion is beautiful. Wandering this stretch of the SW Coast Path will take ages because of the sights and sounds along the way. Park up at the National Trust Predannack site and fill your boots with awesomeness!
This spot is called Gew-graze according to my OS map - if I remember the day correctly (this image was taken a few months ago) pronunciation was the least of my worries due to herds of curious cattle and swarms of bitey bugs. Hopefully we won’t repeat the experience today 😄

I’m having a very normal Tuesday (read: hectic, flexing my patience muscles 💪🏼😓, etc.), but it was such a nice long weekend. I love our proximity to Seoul! I’d never seen it with fall colors, and it was 🤩👍🏼! Skyler and I had such a fun day trip while Matt entertained the younger kids. We walked a ton, including a completely futile trek to a cafe we’d read about then they said we couldn’t go into 🤷🏻♀️ because of the wait, and laughed ourselves silly. Also, these @teva
boots kept my moody feet happy through it all. #notsponsored
, I just think friends should not let friends wear shoes that make their feet hurt. So if you’re looking for a comfy and warm pair of shoes, these are for you! 🥾 (thanks @skyyy.tea
for the 📷)

Beginning of October. I repeat. This was the beginning of October
Discovering the parts unknown in nature, in life, in myself.
I grew up hearing your songs, little friend.
You sang outside my bedroom window, often one of the first things I heard when I awoke.
You sang while I picked blueberries with Mom, gardened with Gram, fished with Dad and tended to the grapevines with Grandpa.
You sang while siblings, cousins and friends frolicked and played in our woods.
Winter. Spring. Summer. Fall.
There you were. ❄️ 🌸 ☀️ 🍁
Thank you for being part of the magic of my childhood, and now, my adulthood. 💗

Diego Columbus was the eldest son of Christopher Columbus and 2nd Viceroy of the Indies under King Ferdinand II. Diego, who was Portuguese by birth, began his service to the Crown of Spain as a page to the royal court after his father departed Spain on his first voyage to the Americas. Diego served the the court for years but fell out of favor after the 1506 death of his father. Diego tried without success to regain his father’s titles for years. He finally succeeded in 1508 when, after a stroke of luck (and a marriage to King Ferdinand’s cousin), he was granted governorship of the Indies. .
Diego arrived in Santo Domingo accompanied by a splendid entourage. The newly named governor had brought along not only his new wife, the firs gran dama of the new world, but his brother, uncles, cousins, his fathers old retainers, as well as servants for him and his wife. One of his first acts as governor of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Cuba was to order the construction of a new residence for him and his family, the Alcázar De Colón. .
The palace was easily the most impressive structure in the new world after its 1512 completion. 1,500 Taíno Indians slaved away to build this fifty room mansion and its accompanying grand gardens and courtyards. What remains today is only about half the size of the original construction ordered by Diego.
I am so unfit, and with what should of been a quick hire up Ngungun almost killed me, I have decided I need more exercise in my life. Thanks for the rad chills @xxmeiksxx
my new climbing buddy! Anyway, killer view from the top and totally worth all the work!! More to come..! #benmakepicture #exploreeverything
One does not simply stop paddling when you have a 15 mph headwind slapping you in the face! Especially when you are in the last 2 miles of your 12 mile paddle day! But man are these Old Florida views worth every single stroke!
Enjoying God's creation, making new friends, catching a few fish, taking in the REAL Florida, and getting a workout at the same time... that's why we do what we do!
A much needed rest period before hitting the last 3 mile section of the Econ River which greeted us with a 10-15 mph NE wind to our faces! And no... that's not a nice welcome to receive after just paddling 9 miles in some of Florida's most beautiful scenery! Thanks to Mike Conneen for snapping this shot!
