Places to Visit: Isle of Skye, Scotland

The impossibly quaint Portree Harbor on the left, and the ancestral home of Clan Donald, Armadale Castle. I would need a whole new blog for all the pictures of the Cullins that I'd like to include!

Places to Visit: Aran Islands, Eire

Dun Aonghasa, the Neolithic fort on Inishmor, largest of the Aran Islands. Picture one is the location, picture two the fort. The pictures do neither view justice.

Places to Visit: Sedona, AZ

It really is too bad that the Sedona/Red Rocks area has become a haven for those of questionable sanity and bathing habits. For me- having had one foot nailed to the Eastern Seaboard for my whole life- it was a breath-taking place to visit...thanks, Dan!

Places to visit: Moosehead Lake, ME

This is the view from the dock at the "camp" that my family has owned since the 1950's. To give you an idea of scale, the mountain in the distance is approximately four miles in the distance.

Coolest Things I Own: Update

You know how when you buy something "on sale" you wonder if it was REALLY on sale or if it's always what you paid for it and the higher, "regular" price is made up? I've been wondering that about my TechnoMarine Squale watch.

I was THRILLED to see that the lowest price I could find for it was $290.00. I paid $85.00!

I feel as though I have won a small victory for those with good taste and thin wallets!
