Arriving in Marsh Harbour

After five days of quarantining in Fort Lauderdale to make sure we don’t bring Covid to The Bahamas, we are here! Extremely exciting hour-long plane ride in the tiniest plane I have ever been in, with the most incredible views of water that just got bluer and clearer and more beautiful the farther we went. […]

Bahamas Plans

I haven’t been a good blogger as of late–that is to say, I haven’t been writing anything here at all–but I hope to change that as things open up and more adventures are allowed. First off, I’m going to The Bahamas for nine weeks on a volunteering project! The project is through All Hands and […]

Hurricane Vacation

Record-setting monster hurricane Dorian almost paid us a visit! The original forecast was to hit basically exactly where we live as a 4, which would undoubtedly have been the end of our house (or at least of our roof and therefore all of our things, as the landlord hasn’t repaired the roof after the last […]

Portland college reunion

Took a quick trip to the opposite corner of the country to attend my 10 year college reunion last week. It was mostly fun and only moderately depressing. I was reminded of what a beautiful place Portland is, and what a beautiful campus my college has. In the words of the girl I walked to […]
