Soak Up The Sun

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?



Sand Between My Toes…









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.

Let’s Drink Champagne and Eat on the Table

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 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.

Crossing the Border


Washington State to Canada and back. I was fortunate enough to experience traveling across the border into to another country all in 24 hours for the first time. Let me just say getting into Canada was a piece of cake compared to trying to come back to the US. I’ll keep that story to myself….

Pleasant Surprise

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.

The Life.

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! 

The life.

First Time for Everything

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!
