But these two know that’s it’s not always necessary to leave the country to explore beautiful places.  Next, they shared some California Dreamin with us…Just remember, when you explore the California Coast, you must rent a convertible!

Now let’s fly from California to the Caribbean where Ms B in the Bay Area took us away to the amazing beaches of the Dominican Republic!  You know I am a Caribbean lover but somehow I haven’t made it to this one…yet!  Ahh those beaches…

Hawaii always holds a special place in my heart because we honeymooned there 18 years ago!  Marty from A Stroll Thru Life took us away with her on her trip to the paradise otherwise known as Maui.
