When Sea Island is mentioned as a vacation destination, most people think of golf. Not being from the South, I thought the same thing.

My first bus trip, a mode of transportation that I thought was for old people.  Since I now get cheaper movie tickets, a discount off my meals and people offer me seats in crowded areas, I figured I qualified.

People of all ages wander the lush grounds in fluffy white robes. I'm at Lake Austin Spa, a 19 acre facility in a waterside setting -- not a rehab facility. Easy to reach from Houston or Dallas, it's also accessible from the Austin airport. Just don't miss that left turn off Riverbend or you'll end up in the lake.

Several years ago when Veronica Vellines was an attorney working in Munich, her husband Johnny was a student of Europe's boutique bieres. In the late 1990's they relocated to New York and he used the knowledge he'd gained in Germany working for a beer distributor.

It was 6:30 in the morning. I had just landed at Miami International Airport after flying all night, and was looking for a cup of good coffee to wake me up. As I turned the corner, a glassed in exhibit space caught my attention. Written on the glass were the words: "What do you wear that makes you feel powerful?"

We lift the heavy cast iron lid atop the venison roast tucked in next to a well-seasoned pork loin. We're careful not to drop the hot coals burning brightly in the rim of the lid. The red wine, onions, rosemary, marjoram, and thyme drift skyward toward a haloed moon and create curiosity among deer and other critters that huddle quietly behind trees on the bank of the Blanco River in Wimberley, just southwest of Austin.

"Charleston is a lady" one of our guides told us. And so she seemed: pretty, charming and resilient. In our three full days in Charleston, we took two walking tours, a carriage tour, and three tours at the Middleton Plantation. All six guides took special care to describe the damage wrought by five fires that burned half the city, tornados, two wars, eighteen direct hit hurricanes and an earthquake that would have registered between 7 and 8 on the Richter Scale, had there been a Richter Scale in 1886.

Savannah. Just the name evokes images of stately old homes set among carefully groomed squares filled with live oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss. A recent trip to Savannah reminded us of the beauty of this wonderful southern city. The historic town, comprised of several squares some with fountains or statutes and some with just benches, is easy to get around, and small enough to walk.
