Diverse Dinners Does the West Coast

I love the west coast, the weather, the culture, the food. Every time I visit I get a better feel for what life is like there, but I have a lot more to experience. Look out for part two of Diverse Dinners does the west coast in the not too distant future.

During my most recent visits, I explored San Francisco, LA and San Diego.

Jamaica No Problem

Winter and spring has been grim for me, mostly due to the fact that I was unable to travel. January to April was a very busy time which has kept me tied to NY during the worst weather months. Needless to say, I was eager to grab an opportunity to get out of dodge. I booked a trip to Montego Bay and within two weeks, I heard the welcome phrase “Jamaica no problem”, and was basking in the Caribbean sea, and enjoying views such as this.

Diverse Dinners Does Boston

I thought this weekend would be one where I would need to take shelter from the adverse weather conditions,  but thankfully, hurricane Joaquin is not a direct threat to the US. Sadly, it has hit parts of the Bahamas, and my thoughts are with those struggling to cope with the hurricane’s effects.  

The weather at the beginning of the week was great – sun-filled days in the seventies. But as the week moved along the temperature dropped and the sun was replaced with cloud and rain.

Unfortunately, I had to travel to Boston as the weather turned. I took the Delta Shuttle from La Guardia to Logan, and oh my, that was a bumpy ride.  The flight crew warned us that we would have to stay in our seats for the entire flight and asked that we use the bathroom before we take off rather than during the flight. The flight attendant, sped down the aisle and offered us bagels, but who could eat?! We took of, everything was good at first until we hit turbulence. I prayed a little and squeezed my eyes shut and didn’t open Blog Life Week 40them again until we were safely on the ground.

I was so glad to be on the ground that I felt compelled to take a pic to celebrate and share. You will notice that its difficult
to determine where the sky ends and the ground starts. Our flight did a great job in landing our plane in Boston safely.

My flight wasn’t too bad compared to others I spoke with some who were on a flight where passengers started to scream once they hit turbulence. Another group were almost on ground until their landing was aborted. Their plane was caught in the jet stream of another plane which had already landed. This caused the wings of their plane to dip rapidly, first on the left, then on the right. Yikes!

Diverse Dinners Travels

I’m back! Did you notice that I was gone?! Diverse Dinners was on a hiatus.

I have been indulging in my other passion, traveling, and boy did I have a blast. I celebrated my birthday on the islands of St. Martin, St. Barths and Anguilla. I stayed in a villa in the French side of St. Martin in Terres Basses, here’s the view from the living room.

St Martin

I usually take time out to peel away from everyone and everything on my birthday to regroup, but this year I invited my family to join me. It was a milestone birthday so I wanted to look forward and celebrate my achievements with those who care for me most, those who believe I can do anything. Check us out.
