White water rafting is something Mrs meson just won't do. You're fortunate to be able to go.

You certainly do a lot of adventurous things. That's the way to so it!

Re: Adventures with Spouse

You know, my Dear Hubby is really sick with heart failure. He is breathing heavy after walking 8 steps, gasping if he walks all the way to the kitchen. But DARNED if we're going to let that end our "adventuring" together.

Okay we won't be going whitewater rafting any time soon, BUT we play games together and one of our adventures is to find a remote place in the game that we have never been to--and we've been playing these games for YEARS!

Another adventure we do is that we read science fiction to each other, so we read of far off places, of new characters, of different writers and their styles.... and even if we are sitting at home, our minds are off in some land, saving the galaxy or something!

Another thing we do to adventure is try new things together at home, such as cooking new recipes, trying a new craft, or learning something together. So far we have tried extremely exotic and difficult recipes from weird places (here on earth--heehee), and Dear Hubby is practically a gourmet chef! We have painted together (he likes landscapes in acrylic, I like nudes); we have tried cross stitch together; and we have learned CSS together. We are planning on taking a course in Herbalism in the fall.

So NEVER stop adventuring in some way or another. It keeps your mind alive and keeps YOU interesting!

The time is almost here. I've been trying to put together an itenerary So I can make reservations. I should have hired a travel agent.

Getting everything together is always tedious. But I also find it fun to plan. Doing the waterfall with your wife I presume?

Re: Adventures with Spouse

The waterfall, 5 lighthouses, 2 beaches, and a rock beach, plus one wildlife preserve. Hope we make it home. I suspect there will be trimming. And going to boil some crabs.

Awesome! That sounds like an adventure. I must disagree on the crabs. Being a Maryland resident now I must insist on steaming crabs. ;-)

Re: Adventures with Spouse

Well, the waterfall was a bust. When we saw the crowds we should have just kept driving.
Cape Disappointment was Great. We walked to both light houses, even bought some suvos.
Driving the coast highway was another mistake. I had more fun when the gps got us lost.
We managed one beach. loved it. very Clean.
I enjoyed our return trip through the desert mountains. My Home turf.
We met nice people, spent a lot of time together. Bonded pretty well.
We think a slower pace next time.

Too bad the crowds detracted from the waterfall. But at least you had a great time with the cape and the desert sojourn. Adventures don't always go as planned which is what makes them adventures.

Our own adventure contained a retreat and replan but it worked out well in the end even though for much of it my wife was a bit too gripped to enjoy parts of it.

The point is we we out and did things with our spouses that challenged us. Good deal Mr. Nail!

Re: Adventures with Spouse

Recently I'd looked ahead in the calendar and saw hubs had written 'road trip' ...it was a semi-surprise, camping style weekend away that he'd booked and planned for us. He then told me where we going and we looked forward to it together. Packed up sandwiches, snacks, thermos of tea, an overnight bag, included the dogs and hit the road. It was very relaxing. A simple trip that felt longer than a weekend away (in a good way!). It was great to get away, no electricity, no distractions.
