San Diego Getaway The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe

Sep 2019

Nestled in the hills high above San Diego is a hidden oasis. Call it a couples retreat, a San Diego getaway or a romantic escape, The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is a little slice of heaven. This luxury resort property, part of the Marriott family of hotels, is reminiscent of a captivating Spanish hacienda. Visitors will find an historic property that exudes charm and represents a rich history right in the heart of this delightful small town called Rancho Santa Fe. Less than a half hour drive to San Diego and the coast, it makes for an easy couples retreat from either the city or the airport.

With a small population and exclusive zip code, the town seems centered around this romantic destination; the perfect setting to recharge, relax and spend some quality time together. Lavish, lush and private, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are dreaming about a return visit to San Diego and another getaway to the picturesque 21 acre retreat and spa.

A SkyDive Wind Tunnel Adventure

Aug 2019

Sure Supergirl can fly, but for six minutes I too defied gravity and went aloft on a skydive wind tunnel adventure without wings or a powerpack. And it was awesome! Have you ever dreamed of skydiving but just can’t seem to drum up the nerve to jump out of a plane? There are those of us who love a thrill, but not at 10,000 feet in the sky. If you have always wanted the rush of the wind hitting your face as you are floating on air, but you are terrified that your chute won’t open, I have a place for you!

SkyVenture New Hampshire offers an experience like no other in a controlled environment just a few feet from the ground. What it lacks in altitude, it makes up for in fun. I found this the perfect adventure for Baby Boomers who have always wanted to skydive, but can’t quite get up the nerve to step out of a plane.
