Interior Los Amigos Restaurant, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Once the summer muggies descend on our hometown, Philadelphia, we head “down the shore” to the house we bought in Brigantine, on the first barrier island north of Atlantic City, New Jersey. When we brilliantly bought the house right before the 2008 real estate collapse caused by the financial crisis, our then 20-something sons incredulously asked […]

Macedonian Grill, Brigantine, New Jersey

Brigantine, New Jersey is the barrier beach town to which we escape as much as possible from May through September. In other words, we’re shoobies. On a recent Friday afternoon, we drove the 80 minutes from Center City Philadelphia to our refuge from the big city. A quick scan of the contents of our Brigantine […]

Going Gypsy: One Couple's Adventure from Empty Nest to No Nest at All

It was one of my Millennial sons who suggested I try my hand at travel blogging. “Mom, you like to travel and you like to write. This would be perfect for you.” At the time, the travel blogs with which I was familiar were written by him and his 20 something peers. They were entertaining […]

Verizon Hall Stage, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

When our nearly thirty year old son was nine, he was accepted into the “special” choir at his elementary school.
