    Old Havana

    $0.00

    It is a warm evening in Old Havana. You maybe had an early dinner, and are walking along the narrow streets of Old Havana, looking for one of the watering holes, to enjoy a refreshing Daiquiri, or Mojito, and listen to some live music played by a guitar trio… Or you are looking for a “paladar”, a private restaurant, for a late dinner, after a long day visiting museums or any other interesting place…

    Caving with Carlin Part 4

    $0.00

    Carlin led us along a scenic hike along the base of a cliff, clambering over a multitude of rocks and the occasional root.  Looking up, there were always towering walls of rock soaring up towards the sky.   We reached this place called “the Anvil” and here we looked up and saw a giant rock formation hanging precipitously over our heads!   I looked around and saw no place to go from here and wondered what Carlin had in mind for us now!  As we took a moment to catch our breath he told us about the rock climbers and how there are several routes up this steep cliff!   In my mind I am saying “are you expecting us to climb up there?”

  8. San Juan

    A Spicy Side of the Caribbean

    $0.00

    San Juan Puerto Rico is a wonderful destination for a Caribbean style vacation, with some of the creature comforts many of us enjoy.  San Juan is the Capital of Puerto Rico, which is officially a territory of the United States.  This is great news, as it means that US citizens do not need to have passports to travel, and US dollar bills are the current currency.  Add this to the fact that San Juan is a 2 hour nonstop flight from many east coast cities, and that English is spoken, and you have a terrific location for a vacation.

  12. Castillo de San Marcos (Photo by Mike Miller)

    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 Castillos of Havana Harbor: the Rallying Point of the Spanish Treasure Fleet

    $0.00

    The Castle of San Carlos de la Cabaña was the largest fortress built by Spain in the Americas. It was, however, built too late. It was never attacked, it never had the chance to fire its hundreds of artillery pieces against an attacking enemy, and its ramparts were never tested against siege and assault.

    As baby boomers many of us came into the world as a result of our father’s return from fighting in World War II or Korea, but our own experiences with war came primarily during the Vietnam War.

    A Charmer in the Heart of Knoxville - The Oliver: Knoxville, Tennessee

    $0.00

    Knoxville is a city filled with southern charm, history and hospitality, so staying in a chain hotel would be out of the question. However, there is one boutique hotel in town and it’s a gem. Visit The Oliver, located on Market Square in the heart of downtown. Built in 1876 by German immigrant Peter Kern, it was a bakery and retail outlet of sorts. Peter was a man with a vision, and he is remembered today by the bar located in the hotel. It’s known as the Peter Kern Library Bar. It has a speakeasy vibe that serves up old school cocktails. The drink menus are hidden in old World Book Encyclopedias (Boomers will remember those – I still have mine!) This alone is a reason to stay here.
