    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.

    Everglades City, Florida

    $0.00

    As part of our 36th Anniversary celebration, we headed off on a 25-day road trip to Florida. We wanted to revisit some of the places we discovered on our honeymoon in 1979. At the top of our list were The Everglades. We wanted a home base because we wanted to spend a couple of days in the area exploring and taking photographs. We chose the Everglades City Rod and Gun Club as our place to land. It is the Western Gateway to The Everglades National Park.

    The Art, Culture, Fun, and Accommodation of LEGO

    $0.00

    “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing”. This is the mantra of LEGO.  Yes, those famous LEGOs!  You probably played with them when you were a kid; then your kids played with them, and now, if you have grandchildren, they are playing with LEGOs too.  I love LEGOs. There is something so creative and personal about them. As Jorgen Vig Knundstop, Head of LEGO’s Corporate Management explained on YouTube: “There are many solutions to the same problem, and you have to imagine your own solution.”

    Farmers Markets and Farm Stands

    $0.00

    When I was a young girl, my mom would take me to pick fresh blackberries. We would both come home and make pies and jam. To this day, blackberries are on the top of my favorites. As I started traveling by car throughout the US, I always had an urge to stop if I saw a farm stand or farmers market come up on the roadside. Wherever my address has been, you will see me at the local farmers markets. They are all so different, so unique and special and have become a way of most of our lives.

  14. Fort Lauderdale

    Beach and More in Ft. Lauderdale

    $0.00

    Ft. Lauderdale Beach is a narrow, long area of sand on the Atlantic side of Florida.  It’s an area that is easy to travel to with an international airport 20 minutes from the beach.  The hotels are across the street from the main beach area, which gives easier access, and a less touristy feel.  Sidewalks are everywhere, and I noticed quite a few signs for “service animal relief centers”.  The pace in Ft. Lauderdale seems more laid back, and chilled than many other beach locations.  There is a water taxi, lots of local tours on the water, tons of dining and shopping options (think Los Olas) and more.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Zika – Travel Tips

    $0.00

    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!
