    Saint Augustine, Florida

    I have strong memories from my childhood vacations to Keystone Heights in north central Florida to visit my dad’s mom and family.

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.

    Madrid, Spain: A Step Back in Time

    As a young teen, I spent my first three high school years in Madrid, Spain.

I was thrilled, not only to visit Madrid but also to Barcelona, Seville and many other Spanish cities.
