Autumn by the Sea: Shelter Cove Bodega Bay, CA

October 19, 2010 2 Comments My family and I had a great autumn get away to the coastal towns of Central and Northern California, and traveling inland to the Avenue of the Giants, the mecca of redwood trees.  Garberville California is a roughly 4 hour drive north from San Franscisco on the 101 freeway. Shelter Cove is a short drive ...

Forks, Washington – more than Twilight

October 19, 2010 No Comments Long before there was Twilight to make sleepy little Forks, Washington famous, this small town served as a jumping off spot to some beautiful wilderness areas in upper Washington State.

The Southwest Airlines Experience: Flying with Kids in Tow

October 17, 2010 2 Comments I have to admit when I first learned that the only airline that flew direct from Las Vegas, NV to Austin, TX was Southwest, I was a bit concerned.  After all, in the past the airline’s reputation had been less than stellar.  The reviews from friends and family were mixed; some had literally sworn never ...

Anchorage, Alaska: Big City Meets Rugged Frontier

October 13, 2010 No Comments After two wonderful weeks in Seward, Alaska, it was time to move on. We had a fantastic time, but were ready to take on the big city. Of course, the term “big city” is relative in Alaska. Anchorage is, by far, Alaska’s largest metro area, holding nearly half of the state’s population. In a state ...

Getting the Royal Treatment at the Vallarta Palace

October 12, 2010 3 Comments Right off the bat, I was not thrilled. About the idea of traveling to Mexico by myself–or rather, with my three boys (as my husband, who was working, could not come along). It was to be a mini-family reunion with me, my kids, and their grandparents, who were flying out from New Jersey to meet ...

Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone – Pregnant in Guatemala

September 30, 2010 No Comments Before my husband and I had our two girls, we traveled out of the country extensively.  We were college students, complete with backpacks, Tevas sandals, and almost no money.  We saw it all as part of an essential life experience.  We met for the first time in London, so it seemed natural that we would ...

Celebrity Millennium Alaska Cruise Part Four: Gold Rush and Glaciers

September 27, 2010 1 Comment On Day Five of our Celebrity Millennium cruise to Alaska (continued from Part 3: Alaskan Ports Galore), we finally got to visit Skagway. For some reason, this recreated Gold Rush town had been at the top of Dad’s must-see Alaska list for years. I had actually been hired by phone for a summer job in Skagway a ...
