Recently we've discovered that many of the videos on our travel blog posts no longer play. When one realizes that Blogger is a free way to blog and that frequently YouTube videos cease to work for whatever reason, let us announce that we will not likely go back and try to get them to work.

Blogging, itself, really takes too much of our time anyway. We certainly do not have the time to try to make those that no longer work viewable. Most of all of this is beyond our control anyway. :( :((

Thanks to Alvey Pelletier in Maine and his Facebook friend, Doris Perreault Pelletier, we have this 5.36 minute-video to enjoy. The beautiful scenes are accompanied by Amazing Grace background music created by Brian Mosher specifically for their use in this YouTube video.

Missed it in 2005

As time has gone by, we've realized we should have seen Monument Valley. The photo we use for this blog is one of our favorites, but it was taken on a trip before we got into blogging. The trip we took out west was so good, we decided we'd love to RV fulltime if we just had something bigger than our Dutchmen travel trailer.

We'd planned to go into fulltiming in 2006, but it had to be postponed for health reasons. Ever since we left in our Airstream Land Yacht in the spring of 2007, we've felt like we were on a perpetual vacation. Now, we're settled in Lower Alabama, but we still love getting out and seeing the sights.

This video tells you what we missed on the day we bypassed Monument Valley on October 5, 2005, because we were in such a hurry to get to the Grand Canyon.
