The Road to Quitobaquito Springs

Steel Bollards on Puerto Blanco Drive J ust north of Lukeville, a border crossing town with a population of 35, we turn on South Puerto Blanco Drive. This is low-elevation, open desert country, with broad sandy washes and hills of sand and clay soil. Senita cactuses, another large species, begin to appear here, and this very southern portion of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument feels more like Mexico’s Sonoran desert than Arizona’s. The washboard road winds its way around gullies and saguaro stands, and then, around one particular bend, we…

Across the Beach in Okinawa – Stuck in Customs

14 April 2021 : Wednesday Apr 2021 : Wednesday Daily Photo – Across the Beach in Okinawa Okinawa, although an island by itself as part of Japan, is like a country of its own. The culture there is like a small parallel universe of Japan, which is like its own parallel universe. The country does not have much of a “beach culture” where families go out to hang out on the beach, so most of them are quite empty. In the middle of the summer, the weather is still pretty…

Bombay Beach: Broken-down and Beautiful

The Sunk-down Town I have landed at Bombay Beach, which has recently been cited as the next projected earthquake faultline, and it feels like I am dead-center at the apocalypse. There are thousands of birds here, perched on a number of vacant buildings. Although it is true that the Salton Sea has become a critical sanctuary for migrating birds, the pelicans and egrets and gulls do not fly when I approach. I wonder if some are sick, dying perhaps. Birds in the Salton Basin routinely go through bouts of cholera…

My Husband’s Pandemic Hobby. – The Everywhereist

Look, I am going to confess something, and as I do, please, please, please do not hurl anything heavy, because odds are, due to the pandemic and the ubiquity of the internet, we will not be in the same room, and it will not hit me. You’re just going to destroy your own computer or possibly damage something in your house, rather than hurt me. Or maybe have at it, I’m not your mother. Okay … ready? Rand’s pandemic hobby has been cooking. PUT THAT SHOE DOWN, WE DO NOT…

Over Sintra – Stuck in Customs

13 April 2021 : Tuesday Apr 2021 : Tuesday Daily Photo – Over Sintra This is the first spot we took people during the Portugal workshop in Sintra. We were staying there in the Ritz-Carlton, and it was quite cool because there were many ruins within walking distance. You can see a bit of the old Roman aqueduct there on the top. Obviously, they built a golf course all around it. I decided to get this vantage point with the quad to make the photo a little confusing on purpose.…
