    Palm Island, Florida

    $0.00

    My favorite travel quote comes from Jack Kerouac. It is “Live, Travel, Adventure, Bless, and don’t be sorry”. We set out on our road trip to Palm Island, Florida with this thought guiding our way. We knew our destination was a 6-minute ferry ride to our very own island for a week. We also knew we would end up in the heart of the great shelling on the Southwestern coast of Florida.

    Florida Beach Jewel - Delray Sands Resort: Highland Beach, Florida

    Florida never ceases to amaze me – somehow there is always a new area or beach to explore that I want to share with my fellow Baby Boomers. I found just such a place in South Florida, near Delray, in Highland Beach. The hotel, the Delray Sands Resort, is located in a residential area on a private beach called Highland Beach – who knew?  Well, we all do now! It used to be a Holiday Inn and has been completely renovated.

    Saint Augustine, Florida

    $0.00

    I have strong memories from my childhood vacations to Keystone Heights in north central Florida to visit my dad’s mom and family. Once each trip we would head off to Saint Augustine in my great- uncle’s Cadillac. I remember the huge old fort, the smell of the ocean, and the trees of unknown origin. Last winter, we stopped for an afternoon on our way to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. My return trip brought back these great memories and much more.

    The Everglades

    $0.00

    From our home base in Everglades City, we headed out to get an up close look and feel of the Everglades. We wanted to photograph its beauty and somehow understand how this amazing “River of Grass” works. We went in February so there were few bugs and temperatures were between 55º to75º. We walked on boardwalk trails, drove our car way back non-paved roads and took a 2 hour boat ride. What we found left us amazed. The interconnections between the animal and plant life with the salt and freshwater underline the international importance of this natural wonder.

    ZIKA – The Latest Emerging Virus

    $0.00

    Just when you have gotten over the Ebola scare (though you will hear about it again), here comes another viral infection though spread by mosquitoes.  Zika virus was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in monkeys and the first verified human infection occurred in 1968.  Since then it has smoldered in countries near the equator where 2 strains have evolved, one in Africa and one in Asia.  The first infections outside of Africa and Asia occurred in Micronesia in 2007.  Since then, the virus has spread throughout the southern Pacific islands and arrived in South America a few years ago.  Dense populations of both humans and the vector mosquito has caused Zika to explode in Central and South America.  At the time of this article, about 20 cases have been reported in the US, all from people who traveled to areas where the disease is present (such as Brazil).

    Irene Williams Exhibit: Jewish Museum of Florida

    $0.00

    MIAMI BEACH (June 16, 2017) ―  She is remembered fondly – and vividly – for her fashionable strolls up and down her Lincoln Road runway during the 1980s and 1990s. Irene Williams’ handmade outfits were so eye-catching she would often turn heads, and this year she would have turned 100. The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU presents a summer pop-up show that borrows its name from the award-winning documentary by Eric Smith, Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road.  The installation features 33 of Irene’s original handcrafted hats, historic photos and her letters that together illustrate the spirited story of one of South Beach’s most beloved characters. All of the objects on view were willed to filmmaker/designer Eric Smith and have been donated to the museum’s permanent collection. The opening on July 13 will feature a showing of the documentary film by Smith, that won numerous awards on the film festival circuit. Also on view are a series of similarly splashy hats on loan from the personal collections of community leader Isabel Bernfeld Anderson, and preservationist/tourism guru George Neary.

    Take New Jersey’s Lighthouse Challenge

    $0.00

    Growing up on the Gulf Coast of South Florida, lighthouses were not part of the landscape.  I  saw my first—St. Augustine Light, built in 1789—on a family trip to the other side of the state, and was enthralled. Both by the light and its keeper, both keeping house and keeping ships, crew, and cargo safe from the perils of the sea.

    Le Marais Steakhouse - New York’s only Kosher French brasserie, Releases New Cookbook

    $0.00

    Le Marais Steakhouse is historic, so naturally the restaurant’s new cookbook:  Le Marais: a Rare Steakhouse Well Done, released on July 18, 2016 is historic as well.  Located in Manhattan’s theater district for 21 years, Le Marais remains the only Kosher French brasserie in New York City. Observant Jewish and even non-Jewish clientele have been coming since inception to dine on its French cuisine with North African and Portuguese influences. I personally had never been to the restaurant before, but I had passed it many times over the years. Finally, I was inspired by the cookbook launch to fully immerse myself in this multi-cultural yet very New York, dining experience.

    How we love our travel – all of us have heard and are aware of the devastating health effects of the Zika virus – especially for women who have become infected while pregnant.  While reviewing the recent media coverage – it finally has hit our Miami shores – it just dawned on me how important to tell my grown children to be very careful – for the spread, though slow, and authorities continue to try to quell any alarm or concern for Americans, the fact is that it has reached US soil and I quickly sent an email to my grown children to be forewarned when they travel not only international but also within the US.  One can never be too careful!
