Hello and welcome to our hop. Thanks so much for joining us. We so appreciate you and hope your week is going well so far!
Here is this week’s challenge:
What is your favorite holiday destination? Mountain, ocean, big city, country?
Since Covid, we really haven’t taken a vacation. Before that, it was always the ocean. A cruise, Jamaica, Florida. We did go to Mardi Gras once – something I always wanted to do, but once is good, although New Orleans is a wonderful city. And Lake Pontchartrain with its nearly 24-mile bridge almost feels like an ocean.
After our last vacation trip to Florida, we decided to move here. It took a while, but we now have a house within walking distance of the beach, a short drive to the oldest city in the country, which is very picturesque and has lots of history and shops and galleries, and near enough to a big city if the urge strikes.
So, when it comes to actually leaving for vacation – well, it’s hard to find anyplace better than here. And I suppose as I grow older, the comfort of routine and familiarity has a lot to recommend it.
When I write, I do a tremendous amount of research and, as much as I’d like to take a trip to Scotland or any place with castles overlooking water…well, it’s just not very practical now. So I am satisfied with virtual visits to these places. And with the Atlantic so nearby, I feel very lucky to be able to walk to my favorite destination whenever I want.
Now let’s pop over to the fabulous PG Forte and find out about her favorite places to visit. But first, speaking of resorts…
A quirky, family-owned resort on the Jersey Shore is the setting for this erotic, lightly paranormal series. Cousins Brenda, Luke and Gwyn are determined to turn their failing hotel business around. They have no time for love. They’re in no mood for games. But it’s not going to matter. Not when they’re up against a handful of ghosts, a mischievous boggart, and a family curse. You might say their destinies are written in stone.
The Games We Play trilogy. Three connected stories designed to convince you that holiday fun doesn’t have to begin or end in December!
