Sunset Sunday – The Sunset View From the Newest Rooftop in Harrisburg

We left the dinner table at Cafe 1500 and headed to the rooftop of the newest residential address in Harrisburg. We took the elevators to the top floor to watch the sunset from atop 1500 Condominium.

The Yucatan’s Celestún Sunset from Xixim Hotel

The Yucatan’s Celestún Sunset from Xixim Hotel

The hotel manager of Xixim Hotel started walking down the beach towards me as the sun was setting over the Gulf of Mexico. He advised me to capture the Yucatan sunset from the rooftop of the building by the pool. Apparently it held the best view. Honestly, I was content watching it among the countless [...]

Sunset Sunday – Congressional Country Club

Sunset Sunday – Congressional Country Club

Chasing the Sunset in Victoria, British Columbia

Chasing the Sunset in Victoria, British Columbia

The last stop on my seven night Alaskan Cruise, Victoria, was a relatively short one. It didn’t leave much time to explore the Canadian city. Yet, I knew I would be ashore for a sunset; a sunset in Victoria, BC. Four of us took a cab from the pier straight to dine in Victoria’s popular [...]

There is no long hike and it’s not in an exotic land (not for us Americans, although I do recommend crossing into Canada) either. It [...]

It was the perfect time to celebrate too.  I was heading north to visit America’s final frontier – Alaska. After [...]
