Solomon’s Castle

Over the years, many groups have asked me to put together a bus trip to see Solomon’s Castle.  So Janet and I put our heads together and did just that.  Actually while we were in the planning stages when Howard Solomon called Janet to talk about our visit and gave her a lot of suggestions.  Sadly to say, Howard passed away back in August, so we didn’t get the opportunity to meet this very unique man.  All the sculptures, art work and the actual castle were built by Howard Solomon.  His daughter and son-in-law are taking care of the “castle” and the “Boat on the Moat” that doesn’t float (cafe).  Hope you enjoy the photos.


Old Time Pottery and the Christmas Tree Shop

Christmas Shopping in Altamonte Springs is always fun but even more so when you stop at the Old Time Pottery and The Christmas Tree Shop.  The ladies came from California, New Hampshire, Wildwood and The Villages just to go shopping with Carol’s Trips.  As you can see, they had a “Pizazzable Time”.


Rainbow’s End Quilt Shoppe Excursion


Just the other day, a group of ladies from The Villages, went on a bus excursion to Dunedin to visit a quilt shoppe called Rainbow’s End.  Dunedin is a quaint town with various shops and plenty of restaurants.  


A big thank you must be given to Mariellen & Michelle who own and operate this great shop.  We also had lunch at the Hog Island Fish Camp, which I would recommend highly.

Please enjoy the photos!

2016 Ladies Only Cruise

After so many requests, 2016 was the first year I put together a “Ladies Only Cruise”.  It was a 4 night Western Caribbean Cruise on Carnival’s Paradise, which is a smaller ship. This now will be an annual cruise, so make sure you go to the “Cruise” tab & check out what we are doing in 2017.  Again, it will be a 4 night cruise but this time we are going over to the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas.  But in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the photos.
