  1. Love My Tan!

    Love My Tan!

    $0.00

     

    Hey Boomers! How many of you remember tanning in your backyard and slathering yourself with Crisco so you can achieve that golden glow for the summer? How bad was that? Yikes! Thank goodness we now know better, but we still look for ways to achieve that bronze glow. There are tanning beds (not so great), spray tans and store bought self tanners. I still enjoy getting outside for some of that vitamin D, but enhance it with a good self tanner. They have gotten better, but there is still that issue of the smell and a bit of orange color.

  4. Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    Dive Right In: Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites - Grand Cayman Islands

    $0.00

    You can thank the wind and Christopher Columbus for discovering the Cayman Islands. His ship blew off course on his final voyage to the New World and he landed on two islands filled with turtles, which he named “Las Tortugas.” The Caymans are a British Overseas Territory located south of Cuba and Northwest of Jamaica. They are known for their diving, so I decided to fill you in on a Dive Resort that, for this area, is a value. The Islands are a financial center, so this is not a bargain destination, but the Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites won’t break the bank.

    Antarctica: A Great Place to go in Winter

    $0.00

    The last thing those in the throes of the winter deep freeze think about is going to a place with more snow and ice.  People north of the equator think of going south.  But what if you went WAY south to a land where the wind-chill factor was conceived and snow and ice are daily companions?  Sounds crazy, but I can assure you that you are in for a spectacular experience if you head to Antarctica.  Seasons are opposite south of the equator so the middle of winter in the northern hemisphere is the height of “summer” in our most remote continent. It almost gets up to freezing!  Let me share my experience in Antarctica as the medical officer on an icebreaker taking 100 high school students and 9 scientists to do experiments.

    Generations Riviera Maya Mexico

    $0.00

    Hola! It’s time to think about a beach getaway with the family and by family, I mean multigenerational. It’s about time the travel industry has begun to acknowledge that Baby Boomers like to travel with their kids and grandkids. For the longest time, that meant going to Disneyland and Disney World, which are still great options. However, there are now more choices for this type of family vacation.

  12. California Highway 1 Discovery Route Part Four

    California Highway 1 Discovery Route Part Four

    $0.00

    With a full stomach and an armload of cookies, I headed back on the California Highway 1 Discovery Route for the town of Harmony, population 18. It took about 15 minutes from Cayucos, with more amazing scenery along the way. So, what does one do in Harmony – why, go wine tasting at the Harmony Cellars! www.HarmonyCellars.com Michael Rice greeted me in the Tasting Room for a marvelous selection of their red, white and dessert wines. They were all flavorful and reasonably priced. You can go out on their grounds sitting high up in the hills and have a picnic as you enjoy a bottle of wine. They host dinners and special events throughout the year, so be sure and check their website before you visit. Photos from the vineyard are pictured above. If you have time before you leave, stop by Harmony Glassworks, an art gallery and studio that is worth a visit.

    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.

    While many in the Northern Hemisphere cannot avoid winter exposure, others actively seek outdoor activities on skis, snowmobiles, or ice fishing.  Paramount to your comfort and safety is prevention and treatment of cold-related injuries.  Frostbite is the one that most consider but non-freezing cold injuries also occur.  Respiratory problems are caused from cold air by increasing secretions and decreasing pulmonary function.

    Ahh – spring is in the air, the stores have the bathing suits on display – it must be time for Spring Break! Back in the day, we all headed south to Ft. Lauderdale. Now, it seems Mexico is the place to be on either coast. Well, that is all well and good, we had our time to party, but we still want to experience Spring Break, just perhaps not in the same way we did in our twenties. Winter has had its way with us, so we long for some sun and fun, but don’t necessarily want to be where the “kids” are. Well, I have just the spot for you!

    Beyond His Expectations

    $0.00

    Mandatory retirement does not accord with every person’s soul. It did not with Dr. Amporn Wathanavong’s. He was not accustomed to stillness. His life had been full of errant breezes. Like bamboo, he had become used to the wind’s force. He had learned that at times he had to bend all the way down to avoid snapping. Still, he had always found his way back to the center.

    I have such fond recollections of traveling with my parents as a child and staying in motels on our summer vacation travels. Sadly, those establishments have all but vanished and we are left with high rise properties.

Well, fear not, there are a few nostalgic places left and here's one that I think you will love. Not only is it in a wonderful location, but it will bring back a lot of memories.
