The Temperance Fountain     Did you know we had a Temperance Fountain in Washington D.C.? Or that it is considered to be the ugliest statue in the city? It was considered to be so hideous that it led to public art commissions being established for the approval of such civic gifts. I happened...

“Magnolias for Pittsburg”     I do not know that without the snow, on the ground, I would have been stopped by this View From the Road; but a magnolia tree in bloom, in the winter, most assuredly caught my attention. This small park, located in downtown Pittsburg, on the corner of 7th Street...

Amelia Earhart Lookout     My most favorite finds, on the road, are the serendipitous ones; like stopping to look at The View From the Road, on our way from Diamond Head, heading toward Waikiki, walking over to the marker and seeing that it is the Amelia Earhart Lookout! This lookout commemorates Amelia Earhart’s...

The Peppermint Pig Candy Store   My introduction to the Peppermint Pig came from a catalogue, a good thirty years ago. This past summer, on a trip to Saratoga Springs, New York, I went searching for the Peppermint Pigs home; and found it. I have to say the store was very unassuming, and though...

Crown Fine Art, Brito, and Our Life This is perhaps one of the most authentic View’s From the Road, I have ever published. Kate was driving, in New York City, and I happened to spot this painting by Romero Brito; whom I oddly consider to be one of “our” artists. I literally had seconds...

Ms. Magazine Way     I was walking down 3rd Avenue, in New York City, in the rain, when I looked up and noticed Ms. Magazine Way. I did not take out my camera, but used my phone to snap this photograph, and truly wished I had someone there with me, to share the...

Bova’s   When they first married, my sister and her husband lived in the North End, in Boston; one of the places they frequented, and introduced me to is Bova’s.  It is an Italian bakery, family owned since 1926.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame   I will never forget the first time my Father took us to Hollywood, shortly after we had moved to California, in the 1970’s.  Always the perfect tour guide, even without funds, he knew exactly what would wow us; and Hollywood did not disappoint, in any way! We did...

A View On the Road     For better or worse, this is not an unusual view for us, in our car, when we are on the road; especially when traveling between Florida and Maine. If I have a pretty bouquet of flowers, in good enough condition, I will usually walk them across the...
