Hey! So Glad You're Here.

Hi, it’s Beth & Francis! You may remember us from Craves, Caves, & Graves! We took a few years off, but now that we have a kid who is a good age for adventure and homeschooling, we wanted to get back to sharing fun stuff with you! Pointing out the things that are often overlooked was always our favorite part of CC&G.

Pepper’s Ghost is a nod to Disney’s Haunted Mansion effects, and the Ghost Pepper for our garden. We wanted the new blog to reflect our love of learning, science, spooky stuff, travel, gardening, and Disney!

We also have a travel agency - Castle & Wand Travel  - specializing in Disney & Universal Vacations. We love theme parks of all kinds and cruising as well, so think of us as family travel specialists! You'll find our forum for travel chat on the menu bar.
