  • Dog Bark Park Inn: Cottonwood, Idaho

    One of Susie’s doggie buddies out west told her about a giant Beagle wandering around in Idaho. You can’t help but wonder if Paul Bunyan and Babe are also nearby. We decided to check it out and discovered the Dog Bark Park Inn in Cottonwood, Idaho where you can stay and relax comfortably in the doghouse – a bed and breakfast built as a giant wood Beagle. Susie’s daddy calls it the “Trojan Beagle.”

  • Arts Hotel: Lancaster, Pennsylvania

    You have to love a place that incorporates history and art as part of their environment and The Arts Hotel does exactly that. Located in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania, this member of the Historic Hotels of America is in the oldest inland city in the United States.

  • Farmer and the Cook: Ojai, California

    Who, of any of us, would not want to go to a place where you hear complete quiet, decompress and enjoy nature? It is so good for all of us, if even for just 2 days.

  • Progressive RV & Boat Show: Louisville, KY - January, 2014

    Temperatures are below freezing, which means it’s the perfect time to visit the Progressive RV & Boat Show and dream of summer.

  • The Inn at Restful Paws: Holland, Massachusetts

    Susie is always looking for great places for pets to stay and one of her friends told her about this great bed and breakfast in West Central Massachusetts. Restful Paws really got her attention because it might be classified as people-friendly because it is geared to pets first. Susie said what with “Great Name!”

  • A Room in Paris: Paris, France

    No, this not a typo, the accommodation I bring to your attention is actually called, “A Room in Paris” because that's what you get and it's in a private residence! The city itself is charming, so why not stay in a place that makes you feel like Paris is your home.

  • Tadich Grill: San Francisco, California

    This is such an institution, a true treasure and one of my best! It opened as a coffee stand during the Gold Rush time. All of these years later, it truly is one of the very top restaurants in the fabulous city of San Francisco. You never have to worry about the consistency and quality here. You might want to try lunch and then a few days later come back for dinner.

  • Catching Song: Art in the Umbrian Hills of Italy

    I was recently listening to an interview with the musician, Bobby McFerrin where he describes improvisation as movement, as catching song. What does it mean to catch a song? It implies that the song, our creation, is already here– and so part of our work as artists is to listen, to observe, and improvise from our experience. At La Romita, we will develop these skills through drawing, writing and watercolor techniques–  and taking daily sketching trips into the small Umbrian hill towns. In the afternoons we return to La Romita for time in the workshop.

  • Beau Joins the Pet Patrol: Susie Gains a Brother and a Deputy

    The only words to describe Beau are “too cute!” Of course Susie calls him the “little dickens.” This may turn into a Lucy/Linus relationship because Susie says that she is the boss, but only time will tell. Needless to say we are all excited at the Boomer Travel Patrol to have a new member of the team, especially one so cute and full of mischief.

  • Fillenwarth Beach Resort: Arnolds Park, Iowa

    Quick – when I say beach and lake resort, what's the first place that comes to mind? If you said Iowa, frankly, I'd be shocked, but for this review, you would be correct!
