    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 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!!!

    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.

I was lucky enough to sit with them the 2 days I was there and they just proved once again what a delightful and friendly city this truly is.

    Visit the Enchanted Forest

    $0.00

    Ecuador is a small gem of a country with picturesque Quito nestled in the Andes bisecting the unique Galapagos Islands and some of the most biodiverse rainforest in the world.  A recent site visit to the easternmost part of the Ecuadorian Amazon exposed me to the amazing flora and fauna of this ecosystem, now under increasing pressure to be developed because of its oil reserves.  Searching for a suitable site to send nationally-selected Eagle Scouts for the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), Tiputini seemed to be a great destination. Long experience with expedition medicine required some advance reconnaissance for me to assure safety.
