Years ago, we took a quick day-trip into the Danube Delta which involved some boating (hence, rowing). It was a fun little trip to the edge of the Delta. It was early spring, so the full beauty of the place wasn't readily apparent, but that also meant that there were no mosquitoes, which was a … Continue reading A jaunt into the Danube Delta
These are photos I've taken during a couple of hikes through the hills near the village of Strugari in Moldova, Romania. Here's a map of the area. It was the middle of March (the 14th and 15th) and spring had just arrived. Most of the grass was dry and leaves hadn't sprouted yet. As a … Continue reading A hike through the hills of Moldova

Here's an early spring assortment of flowers and other creatures from our garden. I'll have more in the coming weeks, as our fruit trees begin to bloom.

I have a sneaking suspicion winter read my last post, because we got an April snowfall. It wasn't an insignificant little weather fluke. It started snowing mid-morning and it went on through the day and the night, with little breaks here and there. The ground was warm so we didn't get a proper snow cover … Continue reading An April snowfall
