I nearly missed the Historic Life-Saving Station Cemetery even though I was on the alert as I drove along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Point Reyes National Seashore. I had seen a signpost on my way south, but traveling northbound the turn was unmarked. When I finally spotted it, the narrow lane took me over a cattle guard and up […]
This week’s collection of images consists solely of postcards, mostly showing the towns of Punta Arenas and Puerto Montt. Punta Arenas, founded in 1848 as a penal colony, happens to be the one of the most southerly ports in the world and a jumping-off point for the Antarctic. Yerba maté, or simply maté, is the national drink of Argentina, Uruguay, […]
It was Thursday morning, and I was packing up to leave my AirBnB near Tomales Bay, running in and out of the house with my bundles and bags. Suddenly I realized I was no longer alone — someone had slipped in through the open door and was casually stalking about, tail in the air, casting an eye over the place […]

I was almost sorry to be heading to Point Reyes with little time to spare, because there were so many places along Highway 1 in Marin County where I would have loved to pull over and admire the scenery. Although I can just barely remember some trips to Dillon Beach (just across from Tomales Point, at the mouth of the […]
In trying to prepare this post I’ve been learning quite a lot about the breathtakingly beautiful region of Chile, almost 700 square miles, that forms the Torres del Paine National Park. Most of the images here are from postcards; but I’ve found that, while descriptions of the views are provided in both English and Spanish, they don’t always provide the […]
