I know I’ve accosted you all with photo after photo of Hayman Island and the Great Barrier Reef. I hope you’ll forgive me if I post a few more, before moving on to Sydney. Because, damn it, the islands were just lovely and maybe, just maybe, I want to squeeze my eyes shut and pretend…

  • I can't believe my trip to #Cambodia was almost exactly three years ago. That was when I had the pleasure of meeting Lucky the elephant at a wildlife refuge. She was a teenager, and definitely acting the part. . . .

  • Rand told me this was the first weekend in a long time that he didn't spend at his computer. We could barely remember the last time we went to Bainbridge, but holy cats did we pick a good day for it. #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaboat #bainbridgeisland
  • Dinosaurs.
  • I am absolutely blown away by @somekindofalibrary's gorgeous photo and review of my book. I'm near tears on the lightrail right now (it's been an emotional week). Thank you so much, Renée!
