Freeport, Bahamas – a lovely place to relax

I hate that moment when you realize that your vacation has come and gone.

I went to Southwest Florida

I needed some R&R. That’s what I got in the Naples area of Florida. One day we visited family friends who spend winters Dr. Beach’s #1 beach in the US for 2011. Beach Siesta Key near Sarasota was indeed gorgeous. Continue reading

I went to Los Angeles (again)

The trip looked a lot like my January visit in some ways, albeit with the addition of Das Boot.

I shared the best salad ever with a new client at Magnolia on Sunset: haricot verts, figs, gorgonzola. We sat outside where the people watching is best described as hilarious.

I stayed at the Andaz on Sunset, which I adore. Last time, I faced the Strip. This time, the Hollywood Hills.

Pool-less in Brooklyn

One thing I miss about my DC life: I had a pool there. My condo building has a small rooftop pool, but the rental building I lived in for six years had an awesome pool. I used to look out from my balcony to decide if it was crowded or not.

I started writing a post about pools I might use this summer, but it depressed me sufficiently that I am only posting two (below).

Why depressed? I realized that I’m just not a public pool person, and also that while I don’t mind spending money, I generally prefer that it not be my money spent.

How about you? Perhaps you have a pool I can swim in?
