Luinil comes from the Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Luinil is the bright blue star that was created, along with other stars, by Varda (know as Elentári to the elves), Lady (Queen) of the Stars, so that there would be less darkness at the night. Going from darkness to light is part of life's journey and the blue star helps light the way.

Retiring has been like going from darkness into the light for me. I have time to rediscover some of the loves that needed to lay dormant over my working years. Some of those loves are writing, photography and driving the backroads to see what is there.

This site is a place to combine those loves, as well as others, and share them with my friends. Some of the trip reports are from my solo travels and some are from travels with my delightful wife, family and friends.

I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures.
