So, as anyone who is following us on Instagram or Facebook knows, Danielle and myself take our off time in the winter to travel. And we ramble about the places, people, food and of course snorkeling that we do. Enjoy!


Where's My Sock??

Where's My Sock??

We live in a 250 square foot tiny home. Well, a 290 sq. ft. RV, that has been transformed into our tiny home. From April to October, this is our life. Right on the ocean's edge. It's pretty special. We've been here through all of the Covid scare, self isolating to the extreme. Since t

A day in the Life at Mussel Beach

Another beautiful, sunny, spring morning out here at Mussel Beach.And for some reason, Danielle and I both woke up early and raring to go. We normally do get up early - 7:30 ish, but today, wham! Up. Coffee made and carrot muffins in the oven by 7:30. ...and then we sit...and chat...check out Todays

Firewood and Food

When you live on a beach, off-grid, you can never have too much firewood. And, anywhere, at any time, you can never have too much food. So yesterday was exemplary.

Yup, Gotta Dump the tanks...

Blub Blub.Oh shit - literally. This is our toilet's way of telling me it's full and needs to be dumped. Right about the same time our kitchen sink no longer wants to swallow what we are feeding it....Not a big deal, really, but a process of driving up to the top of the property to get the

So looking forward to my morning coffee. It's a beautiful day so far and zero degrees. Got a fire in the woodstove (our Cubic Mini Stove - Grizzly model), the diesel heater is pumping away and Danielle and I are planning on filling up the day with... who the hell knows. We'll find somethin

Will This Be A Daily Thing...?

Will This Be A Daily Thing...?

So, after isolating ourselves out here at Mussel Beach for 3 weeks, Danielle, Jazzy and I ventured out to the east side of the island to return our lovely granddaughter to her parents, clean and sanitize our home and do a little restocking before returning to our little section of paradise.Like....o

I Promise Not to Use the 'C' Word..

I Promise Not to Use the 'C' Word..

I'm getting tired of the 'C' word. Watching and reading the news, talking with other seasonal and lease lot owners out here at Mussel Beach, the 'C' word is in the forefront. Yes, we watch whales out in the bay, sea lions, eagles, all gorging on the herring and the cycle of

Lombok - Culture with a Beach!

We arrived in Lombok on January 31, 2020, flying from Denpasar Bali. We booked 2 weeks at Villa Stanley near Singgigi, what an amazing oasis in the jungle.
