This is a photo of my view while soaking out in the sun at the Loews Miami Beach hotel. You know what they say, “home is where the heart is”. Always love going back home and spending a little me time at the pool side. This time I was able to try a Key Lime Colada. Where’s your favorite getaway?
Take me to paradise. This was my first encounter at a sandbar, in the middle of the inter-coastal in North Miami Beach. It’s almost 11:00AM and the boats and kayaks are making their way to the sandbar. If you are interested in renting a Kayak in the North Miami Beach area and visit a sandbar like myself, check out Oleta River State Park, It is quite the retreat.
Life is good.

One thing I do enjoy is a glass of champagne. Chilled champagne to be exact. This is a new recipe I tried starting with the batter from Allrecipes.com and the glaze from Betsylife. Makes a perfect pairing with a glass of sparking dry champagne, typically a brut, or if you prefer a sweeter taste try a Moscato blend. I used Barefoot Bubbly brand, which worked perfectly well.

While on my layover flight from Phoenix, AZ to Seattle, WA our pilot decided to fill us in on a little geography. I was just beginning to become restless and on my left hand side outside the window was…. Mount St. Helens! Never seen anything so mystic and massive in nature in my life. Most definitely was something you must see in your lifetime at least once.
Iconic. Scenic. Pleasant Surprise.
In the Seattle metro area here in Washington for the weekend. I am staying at a pleasant low-key, laid-back island near Interstate 5 called, Camano Island. The geography is quite scenic. Snow capped mountains, beautiful calm water (Port Susan) bald eagles and tons of Everest trees!
Travelers Note: There are some hidden gem restaurants off the coast here that serve delicious oysters fried, in burgers… you name it!
This is one of my favorite Cabernets! I first tried this red wine, The Rule, while I was traveling in St Louis, Missouri at a wine tap room called The Bridge STL. The taste is rich and smooth and goes great with any cheese, although sharp white cheddar or gouda are my favorites!
Life is Short, Drink Great Wine!
Always try something once! Never say never! You only live once!
That is exactly what my blog is about. Throughout my day, even years, I’m always trying and seeing new things. What are things you may ask? I always enjoy sharing these experiences with my peers, whether it be new foods, drinks, recipes, friends, places, stores, cities, clothes, haircuts, hygiene – you name it!
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!
