Wondertwins Go West: Day One

When your boss walks in and says, nows the time to take vacation if you want it…everything is frozen (literally!), you definitely take them up on it! So under the grey skies of a long-awaited winter storm, Cait and I left Bradley International Airport and headed to Colorado.

Hike at Devil’s Hopyard State Park

Today was one of those weirdly wonderful (yet awful for the environment) winter days were the temperatures hovered in the high 40s and you could feel the sun’s warmth through the trees. I joined Katie (from KatieWanders) for a quick hike through Devil’s Hopyard State Park in East Haddam, CT. Considering the fact that it’s…

Dive Days of (Almost) December

Take Me Anywhere, I’ll Go

For those of you who don’t know, in April, I traded lab coats and gloves for life preservers, grundéns, and the occasional hard hat. After a year and a half of working as a lab rat (don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the work), I started work at Ocean Surveys, Inc. as a field…
