Stanley Cup at the Hockey Hall of Fame

If you are a hockey fan and are in Toronto, you have to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame.  All of the memorabilia displays and special exhibits are very well done.  Go early so you have time to see everything – we only spent 4 hours (I think, not sure) and it wasn’t enough.  There … Read more 2013 Toronto – Hockey Hall of Fame

2010 Naples, FL Vacation

Visited an old friend in Naples, FL back in 2010.  Stayed at his condo directly adjoining the Wilderness Country Club and took in some sights around the Naples Pier on the Gulf of Mexico.  Was a very low-key trip but was fun pretending I was retired for a week just playing golf and eating steaks, and … Read more 2010 Naples, FL Vacation
