Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia

Very rarely do I make a trip that isn't planned months in advance.  Although I don't have a full schedule when I travel, I usually have the dates, methods of transportation and hotel reservations firmly in place.  On short notice, I booked a flight to Halifax.  Peggy's Cove is thirty minutes away. The Ford Taurus I... Continue Reading →

North Shore Lake Superior

Very early in 2017, I learned about the Thunder Bay Blues Fest.  The event features 100% Canadian talent, so I booked a VIP pass and began making plans.  Held during the first weekend of July, I made this into a road trip, planning to do a circle tour of Lake Superior.  Two days driving, but...

Preview of Changes and Upcoming Travel

New Developments It's early 2017.  We're having decent weather on the sunshine coast of Florida.  Mostly sunny, and starting to get warm.  There has been very little rain, and only a couple of storms.

Siesta Key Beach

I've purchased a new camera:  Samsung WB350F.  There's much to learn, and it's WiFi enabled.  I took it to Siesta Key Beach today for a test run. Siesta Key Beach has regularly been voted one of the top ten beaches in North America.  Cross a bridge from the mainland, a short drive through the village,... Continue Reading →

Stratford, ON September 2014

Located there is the world famous Stratford Festival, which began in the 1950's in a tent, with Sir Alec Guinness in the role of Richard III.  Over the years, it's... Continue Reading →

Rochester, NY September 2014

  IHG Hotels had one of their point breaks specials, and I didn't want to travel too far.  Rochester is about three hours away and looked like a good fit for two days. I crossed the border at Queenston without incident, and proceeded north to HWY 18, taking the scenic parkway that follows the south... Continue Reading →

Warren, Ohio 2013

Once I left Cleveland, OH I had a specific destination in mind.  I love museums, and have a fondness for automobile museums.  I've been to both the Chrysler and Ford museums near Detroit.  While researching, I found the National Packard Museum. Having left Cleveland in disgust over the traffic situation (many, many roads closed for... Continue Reading →

Cleveland, Ohio 2013

  I was looking for a short getaway, but some place near that I hadn't already been.  Buffalo, NY was ruled out, so I settled on Cleveland, Ohio, just a morning's drive away.  Once out of Canada it was an easy drive, with very little traffic. I drove directly to the Cleveland Museum of Art. ... Continue Reading →

Summer Travels Begin

I've been back in Toronto since mid-April.  It's a great time to watch the city transform into summer, however we have had an unusually cold spring.  As I write this it is a chilly 10C and there's been light rain all day. Last week was my first venture out of town; one of several I'll... Continue Reading →
