Places I’ve been and want to go again!
I have been to these places--love to travel--and would like to go again.
Hitachi Seaside Park | Ibaraki, Japan--Not been, but how totally gorgeous---and pink!
Trolltunga, Norway--Not been--but would love to go !
west coast - WA---Ruby Beach State Park--outside of Forks, WA--before Forks became famous. Been there!
Seattle, Washington and the Pike Place Market... always full of interesting and both established and brand new artists with crafts of every sort - Visitor hint: best to visit early early in the morning when all the action starts, get something warm to drink or eat and walk through and talk to the vendors when you see a style or design or item you like!
Pike's Fish Market downtown Seattle--we came here frequently! If you could dream it up, they sold it. Diverse population. All languages heard. I loved Seattle--but my daughter was in NC
University of Virginia in Charlottesville--We were there slightly over a month.
Next stop in FL--Gainesville. I worked for the VA while I was there.
The Bay Causeway from Clearwater to Tampa
Clewiston FL--I was there for a year the first time and 6 months the second time. Alice Tigertail taught me to bead and make jewelry--She was Eric Green's Step-mother--she raised him from age two. He went on to win a football scholarship to Virgina Tech--and was drafted in the NFL to AZ after he graduated. The story was more involved--but those are the facts. I listened to the draft--first time for me. I whooped and hollered! I was so happy for him--and Alice--she made so many sacrifices for him.
Deland FL--I was here for 9 months--I worked 10 miles away in Orange City. Deland is a small laid back town with lovely weather and located only 25 miles from Daytona Beach. Not as pretty as NC beaches, but I loved going there. Every Saturday we went to this huge indoor flea market and bought fresh veggies and fruit.
We were in Vegas for Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Years. On New Years Eve we were on the street with the crowds--at 0300, we went to eat at the Golden Nugget--Stayed for at least an hour or longer--first time we had sat down all evening! We saw the sun rise and it was 8AM before we headed for home!
