A Different Day


We had a better day today with no snow and spring-like weather (see first photo above for snowy day), enjoyed tromping around the mountains looking at land around Sandpoint, Idaho. Didn't find anything that impressed us so decided to head home tomorrow after several days of intensive looking. Decided we like being out of debt better than trying to find a summer cabin. We're also ready to head for the comforts of our desert home where it's warmer-the familiar after enjoying a break away. Seems we all need some variety in our daily lives in order to appreciate what we have. Here's some more photos of our tripping and exploring.

There's no place like home. But Sandpoint does look beautiful.

That place in your second picture looks spectacular. I guess there is plenty of fabulous scenery in our USA. We are planning to see more of it as soon as hubby retires for good.

Your second shot really is beautiful! but, still, there's no place like home. Glad you had a good trip!

Sometimes those spring storms are pretty, if you don't have to slog through too much accumulation that is!

Peggy said...

Beautiful scenery in Sandpoint. You're right there is no place like home.

There's nothing like going home! (I guess we all feel that way!) That first photo is really wonderful. I am glad you had some time away.

The scenery is so different from where I live....beautiful and majestic

You seem to have reached two wise conclusions while having a great trip.

Sandy's Notes said...

Lin, it looks beautiful there. I agree with no debt. Sometimes not having the dependency, gives us a little more feel of freedom.

Welcome home when you get there by the way.

The time to be looking in Idaho is when the weather is 115 in St. George...

You don't have to turn on your cars heater or windshield wipers... You can walk around in a short sleeved shirt picking wildflowers all the while. You'll appreciate putting your hands on your steering wheel without needing burn ointment.

St. Geroge is paradisical right now... It's in late July an August that you want to get away.

Yup... about the time we're taking our trip up the coast is a good time to leave Ye Olde Homestead.
