Florida Keys

USA | Sat, 6 Jul 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [171] | Comments [1]

BRAZIL | Sun, 13 Oct 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [163] | Comments [1]

The Company You Keep

USA | Fri, 24 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [85]

THE COVID NUMBERS ARE CLIMBING, LOCALLY, NATIONALLY and Worldwide. I’m not especially anxious nor overly concerned but I do check the new cases on the web every morning.  The odds are still very much in our favor — fewer than three ... Read more >

You Can't Roller-Skate In A Buffalo Herd

USA | Thu, 30 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [72]

WHEN YOU SAY "BUFFALO" MOST PEOPLE THINK OF YELLOWSTONE National Park. But a substantial herd of American Bison — buffalo are native only to Africa and Asia — are thriving at Rocky Mountain Arsenal near Denver.      ... Read more >


USA | Fri, 8 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [58]

DESPITE THE DARK TIMES, THINGS ARE GOING surprisingly well for us.  The rates for both Covid-19 infections and deaths in Colorado are declining — which is not the case nationally.  "Stay-at-Home" has given way to "Safer-At-Home." ... Read more >

Rocky Mountain High

USA | Wed, 13 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [47]

BLUE SKIES.  SEVENTY DEGREES.  CLEAR PINE-SCENTED AIR.  On a day like this Eldorado Mountain Open Space seems like the right place to channel our inner John Denver and maybe see a few birds.          ... Read more >

Just A Little Off The Top

USA | Tue, 19 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

TODAY WE TOOK A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE.  Maybe it wasn't the wisest thing we could do but we have already survived our visit to the dentist.  Besides, we  had our last “official” haircuts in Auckland on Valentine’s Day, ... Read more >

Oh, Say Can You See?

USA | Tue, 26 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [6]

PERFECT VISION THIS YEAR — 20/20 IN 2020 SO TO SPEAK — just might not be in the cards.  Our annual visit with the ophthalmologist this morning was far from routine.  Connie’s ongoing vision problems are now attributed to ... Read more >


AUSTRALIA | Sat, 18 Jan 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [265]

FOLKS SAY, “IT’S NOT THE HEAT, IT’S THE HUMIDITY.”  Cooktown has both heat and humidity— in abundance! — and a bit of rain to keep things interesting.  But not much else, at least not the birds we were seeking.... Read more >

Safely in Cairns

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 6 Jan 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [199]

THE BRISBANE AIRPORT SEEMED FILLED WITH Queensland Fire and Rescue troops on their way to Victoria where the bushfires are out of control, just like Victoria's firefighters recently helped with Queensland's blazes.  The seasonal “Wet”... Read more >

Cowering in Colorado

USA | Tue, 14 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [81]

THE WINTERY WEATHER ON EASTER WEEKEND made “Cower-From-Covid” a little more palatable.  We did have to brave the cold Sunday morning and arrange for a new rental car.  Denver International Airport was deserted and I was pleasantly ... Read more >

Socially Distant in Colorado

USA | Fri, 3 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [78]

Moving On Up

USA | Wed, 8 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [77]

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A COUPLE OF MILES CAN MAKE.  This morning we moved into our new digs, a third-floor, one-bedroom apartment that we found through AirB&B only two miles from Upton Suites.  We are renting month-to-month and it looks as ... Read more >

USA | Tue, 7 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [74]

Man Plans And God Laughs

USA | Fri, 17 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [74]

IN YIDDISH THEY SAY "MANN TRACT, UN GOTT LACHT."   Well She is certainly having a chuckle at the expense of all of us during this Covid pandemic.  It is sunny and 80°F on the Island of Hawaii where we planned to be .  Denver, where ... Read more >

It's Too Soon, Methinks *

USA | Mon, 27 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [73]

Colorado: Things Could Be Worse

USA | Mon, 6 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [71]

WE SHOULD BE TOASTING OUR BUNS IN HAWAII.  Instead we’re sitting on our butts in a hotel in Colorado where it snowed on Friday.  But things could be worse . . . and they probably will be before they get better.    ... Read more >

A Serpent in The Garden of the Gods

USA | Tue, 28 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [70]

WE WOULD BE FOOLS TO WASTE THIS WONDERFUL WEATHER, knowing how capricious springtime in Colorado can be.  But until the migrating birds arrive we have been sticking to nearby Cherry Creek State Park for our "essential activites." This morning we ... Read more >

Going the extra Km - August 30th

BRAZIL | Sat, 31 Aug 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [258]

  We are taking detours from 101 north and space from “keep going” and are rewarded even though a lot of the little (but paved) roads are steep as hell - we even had to push our “plus size wire horses” at times......moans ... Read more >

USA | Sun, 30 Jun 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [214]
