All Over The Map

I started this morning with a long to-do list, intent on running through it like a boss. But here it is, almost 9 o'clock, and I've had to resign myself to the fact that tomorrow's list might look a little bit like today's. We're in the last week of the April A-Z Blog Challenge and I don't want to miss the end. Question for you-why are the last six letters of the alphabet such oddballs?

Another question for you-will this be the year we finally master the selfie? 

Not so far. 

We had a nice weekend with gorgeous weather, and since the pollen is mostly down we took our boat out for the first ride of the season. We discovered a plug needs replacing so hopefully that can happen tomorrow. 

It's always something when you own a boat. Or a house. Or a car, but I digress. 

Day 21-U is for Unexplored 

I like to go places I've never been. That might be a country, a city, or a new-to-us path through the woods. I get excited about a car trip where I know we'll be on roads we've never traveled, and unless we have a set arrival time we are all about stopping at whatever interesting, quirky, out-of-the-way spot catches our eye. We especially love to see a mom and pop restaurant with lots of cars in the lot that tells us this is where the locals eat. fyi-they almost always have pie. 

I know people who vacation in the same spot every single year. I understand the appeal, but that could never be me. How will I see the world if I always stick to the same four corners? 

My list of unexplored places I still need to explore is long, but near the top are-

The Grand Tetons
Banff-Lake Louise

What's on your list? 
Any plans to explore the unexplored? 


  1. You definitely need to get to Ireland :)

  2. If they ever let people like me back into Canada I'd love to see Banff and Lake Louise. It's only a 7 hour drive from my home. Ireland would be wonderful to visit, too.

  3. I always wanted to go to Ireland because my maiden name is Kelly. I thought I was mostly Irish. Then came Ancestry DNA. I am 2% Irish. What?!! I am 52% Scottish, 34% British, and 9% Scandinavian. So now I want to go to Scotland. But I will most likely not make it now. I do love road trips though and agree about exploring new places. Joe and I called it 'going on an adventure'. Always fun!
