Upcoming Activities

Of course, everything is curently uncertain, due to COVID-19 restrictions, and all of my 2020 activities (other than a pre-COVID trip to Uganda) were cancelled.  Stay tuned to see what we can salvage in 2021, and weigh in on where you might want to travel with us in 2022.

Previous Trips

Here are some journeys from  recent years:

Bird Watcher's Digest offers special programs called "Reader Rendezvous."  The late October 2020 visit to Cape May was cancelled.  We will try again in the fall of 2021.


     Like everyone else, I stayed close to home for almost all of 2020.  Fortunately home is Cape May, and I always took my camera along on my daily walks.  Enjoy the cycle of a year in Cape May through photographs here.
