Sand Harbor State Park Lake Tahoe

During our trip to Reno for the Reno Hot Air Balloon Races we managed to squeeze in a quick trip to Lake Tahoe.

There was no way we were going to miss even a few hours enjoying Sand Harbor State Park Lake Tahoe. This state park is honestly amazing. There is so much to see and do and the views of Lake Tahoe are beyond picturesque.

Sand Harbor State Park offers everything from an easy walking trail, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming and so much more. There is something for all ages at this park.

The Bubble Room on Captiva Island

The Bubble Room on Captiva Island is a legendary restaurant!  This is one of those restaurants that once you visit you can’t wait to bring a friend or family member there. From the moment you pull into the parking lot you know you are in for an interesting, eclectic and seriously fun evening.

Years ago I had heard of the Bubble Room on Captiva Island and for some reason I thought it was a really luxurious over the top restaurant that we couldn’t afford. You can imagine my surprise when we finally visited this year and got the true Bubble Room experience.

Daily Diary ~ Taste buds rejoice in the best meal of our lives in Mykonos

Yesterday we boarded the Louis Olympia Cruise Ship for a week long adventure cruising the Mediterranean Sea. We boarded early to get the most time on the ship possible. After a safety drill that included taking selfies with our life jackets.

We were off headed towards Mykonos. Pulling out of Athens you can truly see how large the city is. White washed buildings for miles up and down the coast line. If you cruise out of Athens keep an eye out for the mega yachts in port. Oh my! I can’t imagine what it is like to sail on one of these ships.

We enjoyed a great lunch on board and took a quick power nap before docking in Mykonos. We had to take a quick tender ride in to port and then we were off an exploring. We visited Mykonos 6 years ago on our honeymoon and loved the island. This trip was no different. We instantly felt relaxed, happy and excited to be back on the island. The island is easily walkable through the main town. You can wander through shops, enjoy amazing fresh seafood and watch the cute local cats.

One of the writers who is with us on the trip Angie from Angie Away used to travel to the island frequently. She mentioned an amazing restaurant she used to frequent and we were all in for a group dinner. 13 of us wandered the island until we came upon Katarina’s in Little Venice. I have to tell you this was one of the best dinners I have ever had! We started with grilled feta in a tomato sauce that was honestly almost a spiritual moment. The first taste exploded on my taste buds with flavors of feta, olive oil, tomato, and garlic along with rich spices. I am going to fully admit here and now that I may have uttered a moan or 2 as I enjoyed the grilled feta.

The table was silent as we took in the moment and just enjoyed the flavors exploding in our mouth! I just can’t even tell you how much this meal knocked my socks off. OH MY YUM!!!!!…
