Let’s start with the bad news: My trip to Brooklyn has been canceled.
Ouch, that stings considering it was so close, but no worries – I’ll have plenty of chances to make it to New York City for, at the very least, a weekend within the next couple of months.
I have some good ideas to fill the vacancy that this creates in my schedule, however I want to wait for them to be confirmed before discussing.
Now the good news:
My trip to the Finger Lakes is all set for the end of January. On Friday (the 27th), I’ll be attending Wine on Ice – a wine festival in a hockey arena. I had a great time this fall sampling the wines at Keuka Lake, and I look forward to checking out some other wineries from the region. The next morning I’ll take a scenic flight over the area – an opportunity to get some perspective and see the Finger Lakes from the air. The Rosewood Inn will be my home base for the weekend.
I am confirmed to wander around St. Maarten/St. Martin (the Dutch and French side, respectively) for two weeks (February 12th – 26th). It’s about 200 miles east of Puerto Rico, and I’ll be honest: As much as I’m learning to embrace winter, I’m excited to dip out on the cold for a few weeks.
I have received and accepted an invitation to visit the King and Prince Beach and Gold Resort on St. Simons in mid-April (off the coast of Georgia, south of Eagle Island where I went in November). While currently unconfirmed, I believe I will swing up north to Savannah after and check out some bed and breakfast spots. Details to come.
I’ve enjoyed the finger lakes and heard good things about St. Simon’s but I’m very envious of the St. Maarten/St. Martin trip! Bon voyage!!
Cheers and thanks!
Nice lineup! Have an ice wine or two for me.
One door closes, another opens… like clockwork.
Looking forward to having you stay with us!
Thanks for having me!
