Welcome Back

It's been a while.  I apologize for leaving Meat Loaf here so long.   That was something I did during my HTML editing stage.  I am not particularly proud of the things I did while I was learning how to HTML but that era has passed.  Moving forward, I have a new Ghost Forest episode to document.
To recap, this is a part of the Dunes that we have been visiting regularly since we started dating.  (This picture is from the first time I went out there with Tina).  
This year, we are looking for a way to make this destination more than an hour long walk through familiar trails.  
Yesterday's event was the endurance challenge we have been looking for.
Thanks to smartphone/GPS technology, I was able to chart our route and capture the stats.  We walked for just over four hours total, went 8.8 miles up and down hills with elevation that ranged from 446 ft to 840 ft.  You can view the route by clicking here.   The morning after, my 48 year old knees and feet hurt but my brain is happy.  I spent some quality time in the warm sunshine with my best girl.  Aside from the minor aches and pains, I have a mild sunburn and a head full of memories.  Here are some of the pictures from yesterday.
I don't see any tourists!

We were on the beach for sunset.  
This is a video about a guy who spends a bunch of money to acquire an old car that used to drive along this part of the dunes.  At about 3:08, you can see the familiar hills in the background.

This is where they were parked in the video.

Why would I possibly think it's a good idea to involve Meat Loaf?

I don't have a good answer, nor do I have a reasonable excuse.

He certainly has a flair for dramatic delivery doesn't he?

Contract Law

I am learning about contracts in Business Law. Every contract has to begin with an offer. It made me think of this scene.


There and back again


Just some pictures from last night's outing.  The usual stuff-  Sometimes the usual stuff can be pretty amazing.
This place is a hidden gem, I rarely see other people here and usually only one other group.  This trail has it all- interesting history, a fairly easy walk to a great view and a more challenging walk to a spectacular view.
Because I like not seeing other people when I'm out there, I wouldn't ordinarily hand out directions but this blog gets about two visitors a week, usually a spambot in Western Europe. I think it's OK to share.  If you are a real person, go to this place and walk until you are filled with awe.  Please make sure you leave it the same way you found it so I don't feel like this guy.
Which way should we go?
