… Authentic NYC…

Part about what I love about New York City is all the little pockets of different worlds you can find within it. One of these places where you feel like you’ve stepped into another time and place is in Corona, Queens. Here we stumbled upon a game of bocce being played by Italians and being observed by, what appeared to be, fans and passerby’s alike.

…simma summer…

We have definitely had a few very hot days outside. You didn’t need to check the weather to know that however I my iphone reminded me when it started to overheat!

… The hot weather, although at times unbearable, mean we are in the thick of SUMMER and that means road trips with dog in tow 🙂

Addendum… Road Trip…

…California 2.0…

We went from New York out to California and back to New York. On the last leg of our trip we hopped back on a plane and made (what took us 10 days each way to drive) it back to California for a wedding on the beautiful Northern California coast…

Our first stop however was to see a preseason Raiders game at the Coliseum…

… it wasn’t a great game.. but Elvis was there so it made it all worthwhile…

Our drive up to Gualala, CA (partially along Highway 1) was breathtaking…

… we also were lucky enough to have a beautiful full moon during our visit.. which looked surreal over the ocean…

… on a side note it was also the August meteor shower and because of the full moon.. we didn’t see as many shooting stars as we would have liked… although we did get to see plenty 🙂

Our drive back did involve a bit of…

… we decided to detour from there to the Marin Headlands and Fort Cronkite for a walk along the cliffs…

… check out this fisherman fishing from the side of the cliff all the way to the ocean below… although he didn’t catch anything it was still quite the sight…

As our summer comes to a close.. we both are so thankful to have had the opportunity to travel together and see so many great sights this country has to offer. Although we are both ready to sleep in our bed without having to unpack :)… it was an amazing experience that neither one of us will ever forget…!

We hope that you enjoyed all the photos (and following our adventures) as much as we enjoyed being in the places that they were taken in.

…Idaho…

Yesterday we spent the morning hiking on the Boundary trail – a trail just inside of Yellowstone National Park on the Montana side which was a great local find since Yellowstone is largely not pet-friendly :(.

It was a beautiful day with comfortable weather …

…and then headed back to the car and headed west towards the forever potatoes state, Idaho…

Idaho… was a landscape of mostly (pretty much all…) Potato fields…

… which went on FOREVER (literally hours…)..

We ended up in Twin Falls, ID which from the map didn’t look like much, but was the home to a failed motorcycle jump across the Snake River by Evel Knievel in the 1970s. However this little town was breathtaking…



… now on to more familar territory… Lake Tahoe!
