Las Aventuras took a break this year from international travel. Why? I discovered Southern Arizona with new eyes.
So while I stayed home, we had such an amazing time here in Arizona. However, we did get a chance to meet some amazing people, visit Wisconsin and bird in nearby Mexico along the Pacific Ocean.
One our favorite spots was in Wisconsin Dells over the summer. Wonderful weather along with beautiful forests made for a very special day.
And in my hometown along the shores of Lake Michigan, we were able to hang out with the family.
We even found time to visit Madison, the Capital of Wisconsin during the Scott Walker vote!
My brother and SIL took us to the Green Bay botanical gardens which was a real thrill.
Sometimes. Just sometimes. I wish I could grow some of these amazing green and colorful plants.
We did get out to Mexico though and had an amazing birding trip along the Sea of Cortez to go to the Bird Islands!
This next year, several epic outings have been planned. Some are in the works right now and I'll keep you updated. I am plotting our courses for next year as are my travel buddies.
Life is full of good people and experiences. I believe in kharma. Throwing bad cause out into the world is not good. But when you send out the positive vibes.......
.......they come roaring back to you loudly full of incredible energy. And I'm loving life. Each day is a new adventure whether it be close to home or elsewhere. All we have to do is step out that door:)
