Wandering around quite early one morning on the Florida/Georgia border I was watching this small boat racing down the river.  Just watching and waiting until finally he passed through a small patch of peekaboo sunlight.  Luckily I was ready.

So nice in any situation, Austin’s Zilker park is a great place to roam around in.  When you’re with your sweetie and the suns winding its way down and the city gets hugged by the suns late rays… well, life is good.

It’s always fun to take the drive up to the quaint little town of Mendocino on the northern California coast.  One day I took the drive alone and just lazily explored the area, having a grand time with the elements, ocean and camera.

Up the lazy river.  Around here, that’s what the Atchafalaya is.  Slow moving.  Without a ripple, she moves with nary a care as mosquitoes buzz above the catfish waters and bugs of an unknown origin call out, breaking the silence of the moment.  I can almost imagine a log raft floating into view with a young boy or two doing some fishin’ with their stick poles, cut off pants, bare feet and straw hats.  Makes me pine for a slower world where I can throw my cares into the river.  Just let them float away on their own time and leave me to gaze out at my dreams, feel the freshness of the evening, watch the fish jump.

Rafting down the Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon is a monumental experience.  The water’s ice cold and often quite frisky.  The rock most often a rusty shade of red.  But, what’s most impressive is the size of the walls and how small I felt inside this immense cavern.  The timeless quiet, the constant flow of water, the movement of the raft.  Nothing compares to the feeling of being so small inside something so big.

Cruising to get in place for the big show.  That’s what they’re all doing.  Getting in place to watch the nightly flight of the bats in Austin, Texas.  Having seen it I know it’s something worth making an event out of.  Or taking someone from out of town to see.  Just get there early if you want a good viewing spot.  That’s what’s smart about having a boat or kayak.  You get a perfectly unencumbered view of the spectacle.

The Russian River meanders through Sonoma county in California, meeting the Pacific Ocean at Jenner.  Before it gets there it travels through a lot of wine country.  Many a vineyard pulls water out of its flow to irrigate their vines.  In fact, the Russian River appellation is a well known region of luscious California wines.  On this day I was out playing with my camera, visiting some of the many great wineries and enjoying the crispness of the day.

Of course you know I love to explore.  So, when on my way to New Orleans I decided to take a bit of a side trip up into a section of bayou along the Atchafalaya River.  After a beautiful winding drive up a rutty gravel road I came to this spot along the river.  A perfect place to stop and relax.  I stopped the car, got out and just set a spell.  Just me and the catfish.

Nothing like the south for an old west coast boy.  I love old and the south is so much older.  Walking along River St. with its old buildings and their new shops is an evenings entertainment.  But, in order to get some perspective I crossed the bridge and went over to Hutchinson Island where I could see the frontage landscape.  It’s a charming part of town.

Walking around Portland is easy.  No hills to speak of and a wonderful trail that travels all along Waterfront Park above the Willamette River, which travels through the city on its way to the Columbia and the Pacific Ocean.  You can walk along one side of the river, cross one of the many Portland bridges, walk along the other side, only to cross another bridge to get back to your starting point.  It also provides a good starting point to further explore some of the gem locales of the beautiful city.
