The Whole Enchilada


Around 15 years ago life was very different. Mr. Gadget was still in the Air Force so that meant moving every 2-4 years with the exception of Florida. We ended up being stationed in the Fort Walton area not far from Pensacola for 6. This lifestyle allowed us to live in very different places from the tropical island of Hawaii to the Rheinland-Pfalz  area of Germany.

I am really not sure which place I enjoyed the most. I like Fort Ord with the very marine flair. restaurants with very fresh fish, beautiful bike paths, hiking area very close, the wonderful Monterey Aquarium and nice beaches to walk along. There really was only one swimming beach near Lover’s Point.monterey-california-hotel-sm


In German we were able to experience many different types of cultures. France, Holland, Luxembourg and other places were within a few hours drive. Even if you were just stayed in the area Idar-Oberstein was a short drive with its jewelry stores, Argentine BBQ, shopping and resturants.

Oahu was not the greatest living place for housing since you were right next to a very large and busy airport but you were a quick drive to many beautiful places and wonderful beaches.

I was not able to do my outdoor hobbies as much back then but it was still a beautiful life.

  1. Seems like you’ve had a wonderful opportunity to experience different sites, culture and foods. Beautiful indeed. I had a cousin who lived in Idar-Oberstein. That is a very pretty part of the world.
