Napa in October

Northern California looks good in October. Harvest is done, leaves are turning colors, and wines are meant to be tasted. Steltzner Winery in Napa Valley provided great wines in a colorful setting this past week-end. A Travel Tip...Napa is best visited during the week. You will have less traffic to drive in and more open wine tasting spots. Enjoy!

South Dakota

South Dakota beckoned to the pheasant hunter in my husband and friends this week end. So, my flip flops went along to enjoy the scenery. Mums were in full bloom, bees were out, and pumpkins were on every step. Callie, the cat, watched all the action from her perch on a lap.

Colors of Fall

Baskets of mouth watering fall colors looked good enough to eat at the City Market in Kansas City. Oh wait, those are real fruits and vegetables. Go ahead...take as many bites as you like. Just be careful of the hot, hot, hot peppers. They bite back.

Week End

It's a nice weekend. Why not get away for a wine tasting, or a jazz festival, or some R & R? Kansas City offers all of the above and these flip flops are up to the task at hand. Suitcase is packed and they are almost out the door.

Speaking of's something to pack to help with your photos. Bring along a travel size tripod. It stabilizes your camera for better close up shots or even self portraits of your R & R.

When traveling, always take along some zip top bags. These come in handy to store your receipts, tickets, damp swimsuits, your camera when at the beach, guidebooks, snacks, or bottles of nail polish. Don't put them all in the same bag, however!

Airport Tips

Early on I promised travel tips and I haven't given you any for a while. So here goes...If you want to avoid stress, save some time and even money, avoid the major airports. Head to ones close by. For instance if you are traveling to San Francisco, fly into Oakland. Or if you are headed to New York, try Islip MacArthur in Ronkonkoma, Long Island. Check out
