The choices we make

As we toughed it through another “freezing” winter here on the tropical Gold Coast of Australia, I reflected on the lifestyle choice we have made. I came here to escape the cold and the place is full of it – ice cream, gelato, sorbet, ice blocks, icy poles, Golden Gaytimes, snow cones… Continue reading


Lake Hayes Walkway – near Arrowtown, New Zealand

Since we are staying in Queenstown, not far from the Arrowtown turn off, we decided to take a stroll along part of the Lake Hayes walkway. If you are familiar with the area, we parked at Bendemeer Bay and walked north towards the Lake Hayes picnic area.  Click here for more information on the Lake … Continue reading

Doglets go to the beach

A friend asked if we wanted to meet with Alice and Celia at the beach with some other sausagey friends on Saturday.  We don’t live near the beach, its about 30 minutes away, so its a place we never take our doglets.  We aren’t consciously avoiding it, just we tend to go to parks nearer home. We had … Continue reading
