Destination 2007 - 2010:
Howe Island, Ontario, Canada


Well, it took us a few years of, not just, vacation time to find, acquire, and renovate a new place that we can call home. Or new home is on Howe Island in Ontario, Canada. While we were doing all of that, the world dipped into and out of the financial crisis called now the Great Recession. Interestingly enough, we had closed our new home on the day Lehman Brothers went down taking the economies around the globe down with it. It was ... September 15th, 2008 ... we'll never forget it!

Howe Island is located in the St. Lawrence River, and a part of the 1000 Islands region. It is located south of and about midway between Kingston and Gananoque.


Destination 2006: Mount Rainier, USA


Of all the fire mountains which, like beacons, once blazed along the Pacific Coast, Mount Rainier is the noblest.   -- John Muir

Mount Rainier is an episodically active volcano. The volcano began to grow between one half and one million years ago. The slopes of lava flows on opposite sides of the mountain probably projected more than 1,000 feet above the present summit. The upper portion of the cone was likely removed by explosions and landslides. The current summit, Columbia Crest, lies at 14,411 feet above sea level, on the rim of the recent lava cone.
