Time to travel…for 5 weeks in August/September 2016

We have spent most of the summer months at Stone Harbor, NJ on the bay, looking back at the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway and the tidal wetlands.

the Intracoastal is out about 500 yards past that 2nd island.

The twins – Garrett & Justin – are 14 now, but still planting a “farm” in our side yard.  (The farm is 4 feet by 20 feet, but gets really productive now in August…Cucumbers are the most prolific crop.

The green Cucumber is normal; still not sure about this new Chinese Yellows.

Atlantic Ocean is very clear this summer.

You can see back from the beach about 2 blocks to our house (and that sunset) on the Bay.

This year, we will be missing the WyBerrys, but enjoying the company of Donna & John Schubert of Captiva, FL and Keystone, CO.

We will be seated in the 6,000 seat Amphitheater; just about here on Sunday morning…and for the rest of the week, our day will start here for two events – a church service and a main speaker after that…this year’s headline star is Fareed Zakaria.

Then, we will head to Colorado, South Dakota and Montana…more on that part later.

    • Wow…that’s a crazy coincidence. Our friends live about an hour northwest of there. We are there around Labor Day. Are you biking there with that Fella?
