New York City, Part I: Veni, Vidi, Edi

I’ll save you the Googling: it means I came, I saw, I ate. After living in New York City for six years, admittedly a while ago, we don’t need to sightsee when we are there. We visit with friends, and that involves eating. A lot. This adventure was no exception.

Fish Waterfront Restaurant, Saddlebunch Keys

It’s a gorgeous view, especially now that it stays light later.

I couldn’t pinpoint a reason why. Maybe it was her dimples, or perhaps her five-foot-half-an-inch . . . → Read More: Observation From A Bar Stool: I’ve Become My Grandmother

24 Hours in Panama City, Part I

When in Rome, er, Panama…

We had a mere 24 hours in Panama City before our cruise on Windstar’s Star Breeze. I booked the earliest flight possible, departing Miami at 7 AM, to maximize our short time in Panama City.

Michaels Restaurant, Key West

Key West boasts a plethora of great restaurants, and it is impossible to frequent them all. We hadn’t been to Michaels in ages when friends came to town, reserved, and said, “we’ll meet you there!” The outdoor seating is beautiful, the food is good, but it is pricey (even by Key West standards).
