Squint and you'll see a teeny tiny whale tale in the photo above. See if I leave my zoom lens at home ever again!
The first leg of our recent road trip took us farther north than we've ever traveled as a couple. We fell hard for the cooler weather, the water and the abundance of lush, green surroundings.
I'll be sharing more details of our adventures in the weeks to come, but for now, know this: We'll most definitely return to explore everything the area has to offer.
