Sometimes when you live close to the water creatures find there way indoors. One seven footer even found its way into the basement today. Let’s just say we’ve added a grabber to our amazon list. Our snake actually was pretty smart since it ended up getting upgraded tonriverfront property. Thanks to Dan, Daniel, Jeremy, Amy, Ed, Ginnie and Jake for assisting with our little removal project. Let’s just say it was a real neighborhood building event.
Sometimes it’s good to reflect. Sometimes it’s good to dive in and refresh. We were sitting around and discussed a few ways to brighten up a wall in our house and this little project of water that we know, would be a great addition to a certain wall. The following is a workspace for the framed project. It represents, Quintana Roo, Highland Park, East Brady, Destin, Milwaukee, and West Virginia.
If you need a minute to breathe, open this up in your browser and play the video. Just listen and take in the water. After reading about the discharge from Olean into the Allegheny sometimes being on top of the water is the better option. It sounds like Olean is not happy either since they tend to recreate in the river. After the paddle debacle at the Anything that Floats, the new ones are a little lighter. Slow river traffic […]
The water was really nice this past weekend, the wind was even more amazing as it was pushing us up river. Leslie is lucky as the little camera was left behind so she wasn’t captured digitally. We did try the Rivers Edge. The had a Really nice menu and a deck to see the river.
After finishing the morning dog walk/SUP I was greeted by a text asking what would you recommend for a home exercise bike? Funny question since we recently made that decision. Since I’m a big Tim Ferriss listener and a former spin class junkie, I do tend to find instructor driven stationary biking to be much better for my mind and HIIT than the standard Precor, Lifefitness, Matrix recumbent or upright bike. I still bust out my old as it likely […]
Prior to today Lindsey had completed in zero Anything that Floats Races. In today’s anything that floats race we came to entertain. While we started off kicking strong our plan of attack was not the best. We kicked and then we tried to paddle.
When the girls go away, the storms came to play. Pittsburgh became Tulsa, minus the tornadoes however Indiana, PA turned into Indiana the state a few times this past week. Route 28 turned into a swimming pool at the 31st Street Bridge and the City of Pittsburgh Swift Water Rescue went to work on Wednesday’s rush hour. Meanwhile on the Dog Front, the Elle and Ms. Crosby tried their best to nap through the storms with the help of doggy […]
Reba and Crosby are very grateful dogs. They have a great house or maybe they should make it plural. They were happy with the river, Charleroi, A-wall, little Boston, Canal Winchester, Upper Arlington, Monongahela or Destin. As long as they had beds and belly rubs they were good to go, rolling with the punches in 2018. Something about the magical fibers emitted in the fur.
There is something about the smell of fall. There is also something awesome about temps in the 40’s when we wake up. There are way more people at the reservoir and Crosby love’s to say hello to them. Finding that we have deer bedding on our beach is also super smelly.
Is fall here in Western Pennsylvania? Based on Reba’s morning walk temps at 40 degrees F, I’d say so. We took a little stroll up the Allegheny River to see the sun peak over the hill this morning and found a few geese. It’s definitely a little different than our river one year ago when the water was lower and it was warm enough to paddle without a wet suit. The leaves are just starting to change a little. By […]
