I have started writing short travel articles for Go-Trippin. These articles will then be part of the new Google travel app called Field Trip. If you have this app installed on your phone whenever you ride by some out-of-the way place your phone will give you an alert. That lets you know you just passed some great pub, historic site, garden or you missed an event. It is a fun app.
I spent ten glorious days in the Florida Keys at the paradise home of friends George and Louise. Friends Joy and Michael were also there. So I had a boat and I went everywhere you could go by water within a 20 mile radius.
I wrote articles for Go-Trippin about two of my favorite Keys places. It helps if it is a dive, those are the ones I like – the ones that haven’t been gentrified.
Check out Robbie’s Marina in Islamorada and the Ocean View Pub in Islamorada, called the O.V. by locals, even though it does not have an ocean view. Word is that it once had an ocean view until Hurricane Donna relocated it.
It's Harvest Time in Carolina Again
Looking out the kitchen window this year I see glorious soy beans. Did you know that the trendy Edamame bean is really a soy bean? They are usually the young soy beans still in the pod. Why in the world didn’t we eat them when I was growing up? I love watching the harvest and I am going to learn how to cook edamame.
