  • On Patrol for the Lake Experience…

    When I’m looking for a summer retreat for rest and relaxation, I head for the Wax Marina in Wax, Kentucky on Nolin Lake. The Wax Marina provides a beautiful view of a 100-foot limestone cliff and safe haven for boaters and fishermen. It is home sweet home for our pontoon boat “Buttercup”.

  • Luxury Patrol : Boston

    Steeped in history, Boston is the manifestation of America’s beginnings. It is also, albeit conversely, an allusion to its future. It is home to institutions on the cutting edge of technological and intellectual innovation. It is bursting at the seams with young, dynamic students from every corner of the globe – people who will one day lead the world. This unique mix of the charm of yesterday and the power of tomorrow is a delight to all who encounter The Bean.

  • Villa Marstall: Heidelberg, Germany

    No trip to Germany would be complete without visiting the romantic city of Heidelberg. You should take 2-3 days and enjoy the sights. The nearest airport is Frankfurt which is about 45 miles away and well worth the side trip. Stop by the Rail Station or Tourist Information Office and purchase a Heidelberg Card. You can get a 2 day Pass for around 10 Euros which will include the Castle, 12 museums, public transportation, a walking tour of Old  Town, a City guide and additional discounts.

  • Ristorante Life: Rome, Italy

    This restaurant is so superb, the location is on one of the most beautiful streets in Rome, near Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain (make sure you have your boomer shoes on so you can walk after dining). I would describe this destination as pure beauty. The owners, Giovanna and Clemente are known masters in this business, both looking like movie stars, enjoying their success with such graciousness.

  • Amsterdam – Venice of the North

    Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful and enchanting cities in the world – from the many canals to world-famous museums, it should be at the top of the list for any traveler to Europe.  Its official name is Kingdom of the Netherlands which also has in control its overseas islands, Netherlands Antilles and Aruba.  Only the central part of the Netherlands is called “Holland.”

  • Palma, Majorca and Son Muntaner Golf Club

    The Balearic Islands that lie to the east of mainland Spain often receive a bad press but, in many respects, it’s hard to know why.

    Maybe it’s because of Ibiza’s infamy for being the late night party capital of Europe, or because areas of Menorca and Majorca (or more locally Mallorca) have sold their soul to high-rise package holiday firms catering for the ‘cheap and cheerful’ all-inclusive brigade.

    But look deeper and, on the island of Majorca in particular, you will unearth many stunningly beautiful regions with graceful Moorish towns, marvellous beaches and sporting facilities that rival many of the world’s most exclusive resorts.

    Avoiding all-night raves like the plague, I travelled to Palma, the historic capital city of Majorca which is the largest of the five Balearic Islands. A beautiful ancient fortified town, I arrived to play golf, try the tapas and taste some wonderful, locally produced red wines. I left, just longing for more.

  • Touring Jackson, Wyoming

    Have a go-to place that you love returning to year after year? Jackson, Wyoming is one town we never get tired of.

    Jackson retains its Wild West roots in grand style, and offers shopping and entertainment for every budget and season. We’ve visited in both spring and summer, but there’s also plenty of skiing and winter sports in the area.

  • Leaving Camp: First stop – King Arthur Flour in Norwich, VT

    The week seemed to fly by and the time had come to leave camp and head north through Vermont to Canada. Susie had a fun and productive week and had made many new friends, both canine and human. She was going to miss her camp buddies especially Brie, Lucy, Rascal, Digby and another Aussie, Phil a blue merle from the Bronx.

  • Rare Water Lilies in D.C.

    One of the most remarkable places we have been from a photographer’s point of view is Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens in Washington, DC. If you can go in July when the water lilies are in bloom, you will be transported and dazzled by their beauty. Looking into a rare water lily blooming is by my estimates what the Hubble telescope sees when it looks into deep space. Strange universes stare back  leaving you with a sense of mystery and awe.

  • Luxury Patrol: Bermuda

    Bermuda is an island unlike any other. Often mistaken for a member of the Caribbean family, Bermuda is only 650 miles away from North Carolina. Her turquoise water and pink beaches are the perfect getaway for honeymooners and cruise ship liners. Spanning only 21 square miles, Bermuda proves that good things really do come in small packages!
