Hot Blown Glass from Lisa Pelo

We were just about ready to give up. We had driven back and forth on this back country road and never seen anything that looked like a glass blowing studio. Maybe we had the wrong directions? Maybe …well, who knew? Finally, I decided to call to get more specific directions and he directed us right … Continue reading »

Shrimpin’ Aboard the Lady Jane

I knew how this cruise would go. We would meander around, see the backs of a couple of dolphins, everyone would ooh and aah, and we would head back to the dock. But first we would stay out way longer than anyone was actually interested, just long enough to get incredibly bored. I have had … Continue reading »

Segway Through Portland, Oregon with Segway Nation

I was a little concerned about Tom. Even though I had already been on a Segway before and knew it didn’t require a huge amount of balance, this was a person who managed to capsize his kayak in approximately 12 inches of water. But he was very excited about trying out a Segway for the … Continue reading »

Dressing Downton at the Biltmore Estate

Three years ago, I visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina for the first time and was immediately struck by the similarity between the lifestyle epitomized by this sumptuous estate and the one depicted on the popular BBC television show “Downton Abbey”, even writing an article about the similarities. Apparently, I was not the … Continue reading »

Cruise Tour on the Rum Runner II in Newport, Rhode Island

Since Newport, Rhode Island is an island (news to us until we actually visited), one of the best ways to see the place is from the water. A cruise tour with Classic Cruises of Newport was the way we accomplished this and it was one of the highlights of our visit. We did spend a little time … Continue reading »

Our First Gondola Tour with La Gondola

Our gondolier, dressed in the traditional striped shirt and flat, straw hat, smiled at us as he paddled the gondola away from the dock. If this image conjures up a gondola trip on one of the ubiquitous canals in Italy, you would be completely wrong. We were enjoying our lovely gondola experience on the Providence … Continue reading »

An Eco Boat Tour with Taking Off Hot Air Balloon Company and Boat Tours

    The boat slipped away from the dock into the muddy water of the creek silently, with only the sound of warbling birds and chirping insects to accompany the start of a coastal ecology tour with Taking Off Hot Air Balloon Company and Boat Tours. Although this company offers hot air balloon tours of … Continue reading »

The Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island

    We actually visited The Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island near Victoria last spring about this same time of year when we were on our fabulous Un-Cruise Adventure in British Columbia. If you are in the area, these amazing gardens are absolutely worth a visit. Since it was early spring, I don’t think we even … Continue reading »
