Hi, thanks for visiting my site. I enjoy sharing my travel articles and photos so I try to keep these pages updated. Recent trips, outings and photos are featured on this home page.
The holidays and more exciting trips are just around the corner. I just returned from a short trip to Borrego Springs in eastern San Diego County. We stayed at a lovely hotel - La Casa del Zorro, situated on the outskirts of the small town. A trip highlight was a jeep tour through the unique Anza-Borrego State Park, which has some really cool features. See photo below.
Both parks at the Disneyland Resort are decorated for Christmas. We went on a Sunday and it was crowded - as expected. But worth seeing the parks decked out. Among the new shows in California Adventure: World of Color: Winter Dreams.
In two weeks I'm going to Nashville, TN. It'll be my first visit there and I'm very excited about it!

Atlantis Resort, Nassau, Bahamas
There's nothing "lazy" about this one-mile long river that swishes around the resort. Rapids and waves make this an exciting tube ride around Atlantis. There are enough relaxing moments to catch your breath before the next set of rapids. It's a sure way to stay cool!
Built around a 141-acre waterpark and home to the largest open-air marine habitat in the world, Atlantis is a top family-friendly Caribbean resort.
While at the Atlantis we stayed in the Reef Hotel, a spacious and comfortable (the beds are awesome) hotel with ocean views. The Reef is perfect for families because the rooms have kitchens.
Kayak Adventures - Channel Islands, Ventura, CA
Kayaking through the sea caves at Channel Islands in Ventura was thrilling! I was on a guided tour with Island Packers. We kayaked through several caves, some smaller and others large.
Channel Islands Kayak (company) led us through a serene cruise through the harbor. This is great for families with young children.
Year-Round Family Fun in Hawaii
We love the diversity Oahu offers families. One of our favorite things to do is relaxing on a secluded beach. Shown here: Lanikai Beach.
My daughter Christina and I had exciting adventures in Kona (below).
