Sick of Spain? How about a hike?

I have been doing “other things” since the trip to Spain (which is part of the reason I am so far behind). I managed to finish this page and thought I’d toss it up here, just to shake things up a bit. There are a lot of pictures, which are nicer than the story, so feel free to just scroll your way through!

I’m still here!

It has been a long time – too long – since I had anything to add to my site. Remember that sore thumb from my birthday ride last February? It turned out I had completely torn the ligament on my thumb! Surgery was required, as well as a very long healing process. To be honest, it still isn’t one hundred percent, but it is getting there! All of that recovery time meant that I didn’t have the ability to do much else so I guess you could say that life was pretty quiet up until last month.

And now I have something to post! Dan and I took a two week trip to Spain! It has taken me a while to get around to writing it up, as we have a new garden and the weather has been excellent for it. Yes, I have been distracted by plants. And it has been either too hot or too rainy to get any good riding in, but I hope to fix that soon, too.

Now I invite you to join me for this adventure – but be warned: only the first day has been posted 🙂

Site redesign!

Hello all! I have recently taken the plunge to use a new WordPress Theme. I have been wanting to do this for a long time and with a quiet holiday coming up, I decided to go for it!

It was not a seamless change – I had to go in and re-design my directional pages and sometimes make new ones. And I have yet to do that for the Motorcycle Trips (saving the best for last, right?). Actually, it is a lot of work and I ran out of steam. But I hope to finish everything this weekend.

Final steps will be to insert any missing photos and see if I can make anything better. And, of course, I am always interested in hearing from you. If you run into any problems, or just want to give some feedback, please let me know!
