Lemons Way

Continuing adventures, observations, and images.

Morning vice

Hardly.

Under the full moon

I felt the gumption to walk a few laps at Udall before heading over to my parents to look at some old photo books together. Was listening to Salsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel as i took this photo. What an incredible world this is, with experiences, both good and...

Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice 🍊

A few of the oldest dwarf citrus trees in my backyard gave a bountiful harvest this winter, as if they were waiting for us to return. The kids made a load of juice one day and I've been continuing to make juice for the kids, my parents, and work...

Morning blessings

Caught this photo as I enjoyed the early morning light come up outside my bedroom window. Watching tic tocks while the boy watches his you tube videos and the girl sleeps in.Things normally taken for granted are, more and more, appreciated. How abundantly...

Window to the world

I'm at home getting the kids ready to depart for school. This view seems another world away. Happy to be in the present moment.

Overlook

I am presently in the kitchen at B1, morning light coming up outside the window. When I took the above photo I was on an afternoon hike beyond the new developments to that popular beach with the amazing view of the mountain overlooking the marina. Up a hill...

Pause at the start of the new year

I suppose I've had quite a lot of these pauses, 60 trips to just this sailboat alone. It has become a way of life. I've adjusted. Healthy day yesterday, with plenty of exercise outside, reading and writing, a mid-day nap, and good nourishing food and water. I...

Morning, 2022

I've come out on deck to enjoy the light coming up beside the mountain that towers over this little marina on the Sea of Cortez. Went to sleep early, awoke in the middle of the night, then got cozy and slept again until 6. Dark inside the cabin but just...

New year in paradise

After many days of family focus, I finally headed out early morning to a rainy, foggy, but productive drive lasting 6 hours. It was not crowded. I went shopping and stocked up with everything I need and more and returned to a sailboat that was a little wet...

Prepping 3 carby but delicious meals from Caruso’s leftovers

I have taken over for the dogs. Seriously though, this stuff is the real thing.

Towards greater health and wellness

Last night at my house. I take it evening by evening. Yesterday i managed to take an afternoon nap. Been awhile, very refreshing. Enjoying cappuccino at the moment from my set up at home on this cloudy morning. For this moment I am at peace. Peace to you too,...

Latest culinary creation

The boy picked this off the internet and made me get the ingredients yesterday. Turned out amazing with the Nutella hard shell topping we made from coconut oil and Nutella. Strawberry shortcake ice cream.

Shaving in the Aliner

Captured this photo while using the phone as a mirror. That new water heater we installed on the RV in Mexico, the one that matches the one we installed on the sailboat, is so nice on a winter's day.

The boy is collecting rain

After four nights on the RV we returned to B1 yesterday and had a quiet night with significantly greater space. All unpacked now and enjoying a quiet, rainy morning in the Old Pueblo. C stayed an extra night with her friend and is returning this morning for a...

Defrosting the Nutella for early morning snack for the boy

I don't hit this hard stuff anymore until much later in the day, if at all.

Another older popup camper in a world of amazing new rigs

Our walks around the campground have been filled with expensive new motorhomes and fifth wheels. Here and there, folks have located older campers or portable little homes on choice spots. Seems like these homes are somebody's little shangri-la here in south...

Vintage among modern

The boy wanted to go here, even though I resisted. He was right, it's spectacular. A hidden gem in South Tucson. This photo shows the lone, vintage, trailer in a neighboehood filled with big rigs. I don't think I've seen a larger collection of beautiful...

Cozy little camper

I've been looking online for motorhomes, as I do, while cozy in the corner of the big bed onboard our Aliner Expedition, electric heater going strong. I say at this moment I have enough. I am content and thankful for what I have and do not need more or better...

Morning light from inside the RV window

Cruising

This is a photo of the post sunset light last night. Now it is still dark out at 630 in the morning and will be for the next half hour until twilight starts and then sunrise at 730 am. The boy has created a guardian on the bed with the VR and is dog fighting...

Nana in the house

I definitely win for dorkiest titles. There are 8 posts between mine from yesterday and now. I wonder for just a moment if anyone reads this or if this site will stay open indefinitely. It doesnt matter though, because this is for the journey, not the...

Winter in B1

It's been below 70 in the mornings inside as the outside temp approaches freezing at night. B1 has good insulation, summer and winter, but I don't like being cold. Having grown up and living so long in the desert southwest, I like it no colder than 70 at night...

Upgrading my national parks admission

Back at B1 in Tucson. Enjoying yet another desert winter sunrise from my kitchen table today with some excellent homemade coffee from the espresso machine and grinder which are now approaching 12 years old. For many years now I've purchased a yearly pass for...

The sanctuary

Enjoying coffee as I watch the light come up on this last morning on this short trip to OZ. I've got family responsibilities back in Tucson thst draw me back after only a few days here. Spent some time with Ingrid and Lou, who own the Cascade 36 across the...

View towards my real reality

I've discovered virtual reality, where one can be taken anywhere so that we don't actually have to go anywhere, but if course there is nothing like being here, actually being here. And even more so actually on the water. But perhaps I could take those who...

Back

A warm fuzzy for you, blog groupies

Morning light at B1

It must be getting boring this blog. Pictures from the same old places. I'm not really adventuring seriously, just living in a way that has me taking a lot of little trips to mostly not so unusual places. I mean who really blogs anymore anyway. Nobody wants...

Fading light from the parking garage at TMC

The juxaposing light captured my creative attention as I departed the hospital after visiting my sick father. Spoke to my mother about how we may be spiritual beings inhabiting human bodies and she replied she thought she might be a reincarnated child murdered...

Connectedness

I read recently nobody is interested in my or anyone else's journey because everyone is on their own journey. Everyone. The kids, my parents, the people I work with. Doesn't mean we can't connect, and when we do, it's all the more significant. I bought this...

My latest culinary creation

If you know, you know. I've been developing my technique and I've finally got it just right with the addiition of the tamago layer. This has been a most difficult time. From luxury accomodation in Vail culminating in the ride home on the Cessna Citation V jet,...

Flying home with the Robinsons

I'm in the rear of this little private jet, sun streaming through the window to the east over the rockies as we sail south with quiet turbines propelling us through the thin air high above Colorado. I can see distant snow covered peaks far below us. It is calm...

The creek running through town

Took a walk by myself through the town park and trails by the creek yesterday afternoon. So beautiful. President and Betty Ford discovered Vail for themselves in the 1970s, owned a condo at the lodge, and built a retirement home here. There are gardens, an...

Thanksgiving, 2021

There is something about this image that captures the essence of the present moment. Thanks again to my sister for including me and looking after me, as always. And my incredible nephew, Brett. So much power and potential, and as well my amazing nieces, Brenna...

Vail, Colorado

We have settled in for a few days. I'm enjoying the light coming up at 700 am, getting ready to make a pot of coffee. It is a quiet time, before anyone else is up. Happy I was invited to spend this time with family in this beautiful place, as I had not much...

The Epic Mountain Shuttle

Had the back seat to myself.

A little Thanksgiving trip with the Robinsons

Yesterday I drove from Tucson to Phoenix, parked my truck at the airport garage, caught the little airport train to Sky Harbor, flew to Denver, had a large wine and small sandwich at the airport, then caught my shuttle right to the door of my sister's vacation...

Goodbye Fancy Law Office

And thanks to Aunt Rhoda for lending me her religious icon which supposedly helped in the recent sales of our old house and, last week, the office building in which I tried unsuccessfully to build a law firm of lawyers. Maybe it was for the best it didn't work...

Overnight Camping with Friends

Finally got out with the kids to an overnight RV trip beyond our front door. Had a great time with friends, including, but not limited to, old fashioned BBQ, good music thanks to Amazon and the blue speaker, and a comedy show put on by the kids from the steps...

A new day dawns

Appreciating the early light while enjoying the Veracruz coffee I picked up in Hermosillo this past weekend. Enjoying time with family and feeling gratitude for the blessings I have. Another half cup warming in the pot. Peace.

Fitting new wii game

Excellent cheeseburger and haircut in Nogales, Sonora

I arrived in Nogales, Sonora shortly after noon and started looking for someplace to eat while I worked remotely doing family law. Didn't come across anything good, but I did wind up in some rather precarious hilly places with my big truck while exploring more...

Exploring Hermosillo

Did a little more exploring in Hermosillo, the capital of Sonora. This photo is the central square area. In spite of several efforts, I haven't really been able to access the spirit of Hermosillo as it seems to be just a sprawling metropolis without much to...

Evening with Mexico friend

I've always met more friends when I'm on the sailboat than when I'm living in Tucson. When I'm living as a sailboat person, it's like I'm a different person. I'm a lot more social as a boat person. I seem to gravitate to international people, especially, and...

Fall morning where the desert meets the sea

Enjoying instant coffee on deck as the sun comes up behind me and a sleepy day at the marina begins. Mostly quiet around here. Last night it got more and more cool and comfy to the point I didn't want to get out of the spacious forward bunk. As always, the...

So happy to be back on Oz

Sitting on deck in my favorite spot on my sportaseats, watching the fading light from the marina on this cooling night at the sailboat in Mexico. My neighbor boat is still off cruising with the Tucson Sailing Club. I awoke early this morning.in Tucson at B1,...

View from the backyard at B1

Another five day block has ended and I am enjoying a quiet evening watching the sunset.
