found on the beach x2

It’s been a minute since my last found on the beach post. I’ve still be wandering the beach, picking up things that catch my eye and photographing arrangements but I haven’t been sharing my work. To be honest, I’ve felt a bit discouraged. An anonymous commenter (of course) left some stupid, snarky response about how

five reasons to start geocaching

A little over a year and half ago I started geocaching. Over 350 found caches later, it’s safe to say I’m hooked. I took a tiny hiatus at the end of last year but the past two months Jeff and I have been going hard. I feel like I’m mentioning it just about every single

Jerry’s Junk 2017

Over the weekend I took a spur of the moment trip to Louisville, Kentucky. The trip itself wasn’t spur of the moment. It’d been in the plans for a couple months. It was supposed to be a huge road trip but with my dad’s surgery being rescheduled for the week we’d planned to be away

I can easily put my finger on the exact date I fell in love with Cleveland. It was my first bike ride in the city. Jeff and I weren’t even officially dating, and I had only been living here a little under two months at the time. He asked me to join him and some

Goldfield Pioneer Cemetery

After visiting Tonopah Cemetery I guess my excitement got the best of me because I fell asleep as soon as we got back into the car. I woke up a short time later to Jeff asking “wanna stop at this cemetery?” I’m not sure I’ve ever said no to that question. We pulled in and

Pismo Beach

I’m throwing it back to last month’s road trip again today. After driving the extraterrestrial highway, visiting Tonopah Cemetery, making friends with a jackrabbit, and getting  our fill of the desert (that’s not really a thing. I could never get my fill of the desert!) we headed to the coast. Two years back we drove
