LOVING RIO!

August 9, 2016

Like groupies we are glued to the TV set each night watching the 2016 Olympics and the beautiful panoramas of Rio.  What a glorious city!  Yes, it has its problems, but the scenery is beyond fabulous.  Loved the 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony as well.  What a visual treat!  Smiles, laughter, dancing, singing interspersed with lights and sound and music!  It was honest, earnest and fun!  From the history to the color to the music and the fireworks – it was fun!  Maracana Stadium and the sites and scenes of the beautiful landscape left us thrilled.  And what about Ipanema!!!!  Amazing!  The games have begun.  Let the party begin as well.                                                                                               http://www.powerhiking.com

PILGRIMAGE TO MAVERICKS

September 30, 2015

Home to monster off shore waves and world class surfing contests, there is a draw to visit Mavericks for surfers as well as beach wanderers.  The world’s best surfers come at a moment’s notice to surf Mavericks when the waves are right, but today it is enjoyed only by a flock of pelicans.  www.powerhiking.comMAVERICKS

Soft sand under your toes, waves sparkling under the sun, beautiful vistas – Coronado Beach is the place to be. Whether you want to walk the beach, search for shells, surf or just relax, Coronado Beach is the perfect spot. Located on the ocean side of Coronado Island, the beach is easy to get to. Take the Water Taxi or ferry boat to the Coronado Ferry Landing and the free island shuttle or drive over the beautiful new bridge. You will have a wonderful day!

VIVA WIMBLEDON!

June 30, 2014

The soccer world is watching Brazil.  The tennis world is watching England.  While the excitement of the games and matches continues, television shows us the beautiful beaches of Rio de Janeiro – Copacabana and Ipanema.  We take the cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain and we view the magnificent giant statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Carcovado Mountain.  In England we visit the  quaint village of Wimbledon as well as views back in London of Big Ben, The River Thames and the amazing London Eye.  Does it make you want to travel?  It sure does!
