  • One of the views from my private Vision Jet experience - there were only four of us: their marketing head, a journalist with a major luxury consumer magazine, his photographer and me, so we were able to move around a lot, switching from the front (and navigate the plane from as well - so cool) to the back, but regardless of where you sit, the views are amazing because the windows are so much larger than other small aircraft or commercial  planes. Have always loved flying & puddle jumpers, jets & small private planes are always top on the list for me. Was a lovely treat.
  • If you’re into aviation or just happen to love luxury jets, you’ll likely know about Cirrus Aircraft because they’ve been around for awhile — since 1984 to be precise — however you may not have heard of their latest innovation, the Vision Jet. We had an opportunity to go up in one this month to test out their latest and greatest. -
-
I’ve been meaning to take a helicopter ride over the Bay Area and this experience was about as close as you’ll get to the same thrill. Since there are so few seats and the windows are larger than commercial aircraft, you can really take advantage of the scenery. -
-
Here’s my write-up on the experience which includes views of the 2 or so hour trip that we took from Oakland up to Napa and back, circling the entire SF Bay Area.

Was glorious. Love small aircraft and well a luxury jet is even better, right?
  • Saw a fun new musical -- Seussical, via the newest non-profit theatrical organization to join the San Francisco Bay Area arts community. Yup, it's based on all things Dr. Seuss and its closing out its second season at the historical Alcazar Theatre on Geary Street, a 511-seat theatre that is host to many touring productions of Broadway and Off Broadway plays, as well as variety, cabaret, comedians, and other acts. -
-
While I can't sing 🎶 at least not seriously, I have played piano since I was 5, and love playing musicals on my home #Steinway even though I am shy to play publicly largely because I'm so dang rusty.
-
Love this theatre - this shot is taken from the balcony at sunset! We also loved the show since in true Seussical style, it was a great reminder how to be a child again, and that our imagination is always there for the taking when we simply BELIEVE in the invisible. I try to live my life that way - hope you do too! -

  • When you go to New England next or live there and have never taken in this historical lake, consider Lake Squam, which is the state's third-largest lake. We went out in a motor boat with a local guide who knows the lake like her own pulse including where Bald Eagles and Blue Herons nest and hang out, the best swimming spots, how to take in the sunset and more. -
-
Nature is what it's all about here -- they even have a Natural Science Center, which offers wildlife education and history on the ecology, a great stop if you are bringing kids. -
-
Squam Lake has more than a dozen primitive campsites on its islands, and a remote island you can rent out to get married. -
-
It's also the same lake where On Golden Pond was filmed back in 1981. And, if you're a loon lover, they have many of 'em - I grew up on a lake where we could hear that beautiful loon call at dawn & dusk! -
-
Also just a quick factoid, Squam Lake was originally called Keeseenunknipee, which meant "the goose lake in the highlands".
-

Here's an article I wrote on nature and NH's lakes: https://weblogtheworld.com/formats/featured/the-new-hampshire-lakes-district-summer-fall-travel-guide
  • Magical fluffy bouncing clouds flying over Texas. Love it when I get a clear view like this from a window - never grow tired of what I see from above. Never.
