The Governors Palace in Williamsburg was the official residence of the Royal Governors of the Colony of Virginia. It was home to governors until the capital was moved to Richmond in 1780.

We took a quick trip to Williamsburg on December 11th to see the colonial decorations and to shop the Cheese Shop on Merchants Square. The shop makes the best “house dressing” to go with turkey or ham sandwiches, their wines are superb as are the cheese selections.


Visiting the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich this summer in Belize. Cerros is an archeological site not engulfed by jungle, and is constructed near a turquoise sea and the blue sky.

Holidays at the National Harbor in the Waterfront District has a nightly tree show. The 54-foot tree is part of a breathtaking light-show at sunset. The Awakening is a 72 foot statue that depicts a giant embedded in the sand along the Potomac.


Life continues to move at a cautious pace, let’s welcome this upcoming year with great health and happiness!!!

Weekend in LA

The weekend started early by taking Friday off to enjoy a touch of beauty in the way of culture. It was time for an escape from the ordinary to see a bit of art, experience tasty dishes and to reset my frame of mind.

First on the list was the Getty Villa off the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The museum specializes in ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan art. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous and the most inviting areas of the compound, and as you hike to reach the galleries, flowers are growing along path that release a wonderful scent.

I jotted down ideas for planting the herb garden for next year at Heath.

Stayed tuned for more from LA.
