Altos de Chavón, Dominican Republic

While browsing through this year's images, I came across these photographs from our trip to Dominican Republic. I thought I would share a few of them I took while visiting Altos de Chavón in La Romana.

Altos de Chavón  is a beautiful shopping/art/culture area which was built on a cliff overlooking the Río Chavón and designed looking like a 16th century Mediterranean village. This area includes a museum, a 5,000-seat amphitheatre, artists' studios, galleries, as well as many shops and restaurants.
All that surrounded by breathtaking views...

The Morristown Club

The Morristown Club is the oldest members-only social clubs in New Jersey. It is part of a private network of over 100 fine clubs throughout the United States and abroad. 

The stately brick townhouse at 27 Elm Street presents a stylish setting as well as a warm and inviting atmosphere with working fireplaces, brass chandeliers and fine architectural details. The club features an elegant main dining room, smaller intimate meeting rooms, a bar and cocktail lounge, card room and outdoor dining on two beautiful porches. ~ http://morristownclub.net.

Here are a few images of the historic club.

Beautiful Sunday Afternoon

Happy Father's Day!

My hubby and I took a relaxing afternoon ride to the next door town of Chester.
As we strolled down Main Street we stopped at Fresco Mexican for a quick bite to eat and a couple of refreshing drinks.
Finished off with ice cream and a shake =) from a local shop. 
It was a beautiful day!
