Bubba's..."we relish your buns"

After two weeks of being incredibly organic and vegetarian and loving it, we couldn't resist a stop at Bubba's in Hanalei for a cheeseburger and fries. The beef comes from Kauai and it's just simply a kick-ass burger with some delicious relish and fresh buns.

The Tents of Ocean Grove-Wintertime

Hard to believe these wooden structures house entire families during the summers!

Snowstorm 2009, Ocean Grove, NJ

Our little town was hit along with the entire East Coast in one of the biggest blizzards in decades. They say we only had 18 inches but with snow drifts we measured some spots up to 3 feet!

Empire State of Mind

Thanksgiving weekend offers a wonderful Broadway day! Marseille with cousin Leeds where we lingered over lunch with a delicious salad and then off to meet Diane at the Schoenfeld Theatre to see the stellar "Steady Rain" with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig. After a riveting performance we head to Blue Fin at the W Times Square. Hopped on the bus and home by 10! What a day!

More DC visitors

Reina, my youngest goddaughter, now 6 years old, with her mom and my dear friend Regina stop by on their trip home to DC from NYC. Although they arrived after dark, we bundled up and let the moon guide us to the Ocean while collecting seashells. It was a short, but very sweet visit.

While attending the American Heart Association Conference in Orlando, FL., we finally find a section in Orlando that offers food better than an Outback Steakhouse! Pointe Orlando, the outdoor Mall features the usual suspects but we found this upside down building amusing. It even creaks as if it is going to fall further. The clever decorations added a touch of whimsy. One restaurant in particular we found appealing was Cafe Tu Tu Tango

Marley visists OG

Marley & Brooke make their first excursion to Ocean Grove! Dad and Debi join us and we settle in for some of the worst Thunderstorms in years! But we find a little sunshine by visiting the Mayor of Ocean Grove, aka B.J. The Bijan and to indulge in mani-pedis...Marley's first!
