Afternoon Delight

The afternoons bring much joy when you get outside and explore the natural beauty.  One of the many benefits of travel is to appreciate the surroundings by taking in the five senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling. Sometimes I like to contrast the west and east coast. As an example; the cow I saw at…

Good Morning…Newfound Lake!

Nothing could be finer than to be…in New Hampshire, in the morning!  That just misses the mark, but I bet you are singing about Carolina right now!  I’ve been there too! This is just the way it looked from my bedroom window at 7:02!  Call to action, no particular place to be, let’s lace up…

The Peninsula Hotel and The Ozone Bar

What a day. Afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel.  They don’t take reservations, but we were told by many, not to miss this opportunity.  We were hoping it would meet the expectations; the wait time was nearly 2 hours.  We weren’t disappointed. It’s a maginficent hotel, built in 1928. If you Google it, you can…
