First Stop of our cruise was St. Thomas - we started by visiting a local brewery, the Tap and Still. After a morning brew and snack we sailed over to Honeymoon Beach on St. John for snorkeling and swimming. Honeymoon Beach sits inside Virgin Islands National Park - our first national park visit inside a U.S. territory.
Stayed with Jared and Kaitlyn a few days before our cruise in Old San Juan. Plenty to see - toured the old forts and enjoyed delicious local food and drinks.
A cool day in the Rio Grande Valley so we went for a walk to see birds at Resaca De La Palma State Park and World Birding Center. We saw many of the usual suspects like the Great Kiskadee, Green Jay, Altamira Oriole, Wild Turkey along with an Armadillo and a curious Coyote.
Enjoying the unpredictable November weather here on South Padre Island - RVing on the Island at the Holiday KOA, Lots of walks, birding, and enjoying the beach on warm and cold days.
Jared and Kaitlyn came over to Fredericksburg for the weekend. We took one day of their visit to go explore Boerne, Texas. Nice little downtown area with shops, a cool wine tasting room, and a few breweries.
Heather really wanted to visit this area today, so about a 90 minute drive north from Silver City to The Catwalk. Definitely worth the trip up here!
Today we rode a nice section of the Trail of the Mountain Spirits - plenty of climbing and excellent scenery.
Time for a hike in the Gila National Forest, 8.5 miles round trip with 2,450 of climbing! No one else on the trail except our Ladybug friends mating at the top of Signal Peak.
Went out with Gary (local from Silver City) to ride a portion of the CDT today in the North Burro Mountains. More technical riding on a section of trail that sees little maintenance. Overall a very fun and challenging MTB ride with many nice vistas.
