Five Islands in Winter
A few years ago a group of us got up very early and drove to Soley Cove on the Bay of Fundy and hiked the shoreline to Five Islands Park. It was a beautiful, cold winter’s day, but these photos show that it was worth it.
Saltscapes sent me to Inverness to scout out Cabot Links, the most exciting new golf course in Canada. It is already rated in the top 100 courses in the world – 82 by Golf.com and 42 by Golf Digest. Pretty impressive and there’s more to come with the planned opening of Cabot Cliffs in 2015. Here’s […]
Moosehead Lake & Gulf Hagas
In late fall 2012 I took an assignment from Saltscapes to explore the Moosehead Lake area of Maine. Here are some additional photos.
Hiking La Garrotxa
A few years ago Alison was an attendee at the World Energy Conference in Madrid. I decided to tag along so we could spend some time in Spain after the conference, however, while the conference was in session I was going to do some solo hiking.

We started off the month of March 2014 with a brief foray to Beantown where we watched the Bruins lose, had several great meals and really enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Battery Wharf.

Boca Grande & the Gasparilla Inn
In January 2013 we spent a week on Sanibel and then ventured north to the sleepy island of Boca Grande and spent a night at one of America’s most storied hostelries, the Gasparilla Inn. I wrote a story for Travel World International which is on page 58. These are the photos I was not able to include.
I first visited Hamburg over a decade ago on business and was blown away by the sheer efficiency of this city – everything works! It has a beautiful location with water seemingly everywhere, with the Elbe River on one side and the Alster lakes on the other with canals linking the two. There are numerous distinct areas […]
