My good friend Doug McHenry passed away recently. Regular readers of this website will know about the blog postings that Doug and his wife, Marie, first posted to the Weekend Driver Blog, then to their own blog starting in 2008.
I met Doug when I worked at the City of San Diego, where he was a planner for many years. After he retired, he would send out these wonderful emails to friends with stories about trips he and Marie took, with Doug writing the story and Marie supplying the excellent photos.
After I started the blog, I suggested he contribute; after awhile, there was much more of the Travels with Doug and Marie than Weekend Driver, so I set them up with a blog of their own.
Marie said Doug’s favorite blog entries were from their trip to New England in 2008. Here’s a link to the first of the ten postings on their wonderful trip.
One of the great things about the web is that it’s helped many people find their voice; we’re all lucky now that we can still catch Doug’s voice and Marie’s visions in their blog posts. Enjoy!
