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

    $0.00

    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.

    Boomers and Memorial Day: Vietnam – the War of our Generation

I was a gleam in my parents’ eyes until my dad returned from the Philippines in 1945 to arrange my arrival at the lead of the boomer generation in 1946.

    Travel Partners With Benefits – Can The Relationship Last The Distance?

    $0.00

    “The value of a relationship should not be measured by the length of time the relationship lasts, but by the strength of the bond that exists every moment you are together. When you eventually say goodbye, you need to appreciate the moments you had, more than you dread the moments you won’t have.”

    New England’s miles of sandy beaches, majestic coasts, and rolling surf invite relaxation.

You’ll also get to visit the historic locations of Boston and Providence, the Gilded Age mansions of Newport, the lively artist colony of Provincetown, and the beautiful islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

    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.

    Queen Mary 2 - The Voyage, the Ship, the Arrival: Part Two

    $0.00

    Sea and ship travel nowadays just isn’t the same as it used to be.  People cruise nowadays, they’re not traveling to really get anyplace, and they’re traveling on holidays, with friends and families, with work groups, with associations. They’re cruising to relax, have a good time, be entertained and fed all day, and when they arrive, well, some of them fly straight back!  (And by the way – Cunard has a reciprocal arrangement with British Air for special fares, make sure you enquire about it before leaving).

    The Queen Mary 2 Journey - Luxury Personified: Part One

    $0.00

    REMEMBER WHEN?   LUXURY WAS A GIVEN, AND THE CUNARD SLOGAN WAS “GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN”? That was in the Golden Age of transatlantic crossings. When people really going to or from someplace had to resort to sea travel to go long distances.  With the advent of jet planes, carrying more passengers at greater speeds, ocean travel has become almost extinct. But, the QUEEN MARY 2 keeps it alive in all its luxury and splendor on its run from New York (“Brooklyn!”) to Southampton (and some other European destinations).  And I’m telling you, if you have the time, and the money, then treat yourselves to 7 days of luxury, elegance, grand living, and of being suspended in time and place. Getting there really was more than half the fun!!!

    $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.
