Wet and wild in Texas

When it rains, it pours. That’s the way it has been going in Texas this year. Poor Austin. They can’t catch a break in the Hill Country. A relentless drought plagued them for at least five years.

We made it past the poo and the dust bowl, skirted San Francisco and headed to Mendocino. Our first visit to this small town on a cliff in 2004 left us wanting to return. In fact, the picture I used on the ‘About LtD‘ page was taken in Mendocino as we waited to watch the […]
