Pensacola’s Art Scene with Maria Goldberg

Five Sisters Blues Café, Pensacola

Ahhh, good food, music, and history; all in one unique historic Pensacola area recognized on the Mississippi Blues Trail. Last Thursday, Linda and I headed to Five Sisters Blues Café in an area known as “The Blocks” in downtown Pensacola. For decades, the intersection of Belmont and DeVillies was the epicenter of African American business and social life.

Secret Mobile, Amy Delcambre

Growing up in Mobile, a big little city where everybody knows a guy who knows a guy who it turns out is your cousin, it’s easy to think you know it all, have seen it all, and have done it all. To be sure, that’s at least what local travel writer and small business owner Amy Delcambre thought. It wasn’t until 2015 when Compass Media contracted Amy to write copy for the annual Visit Mobile visitor’s guide that Amy realized how little she knew about the city she was born and raised in.

Never Hit a Bad Golf Shot Again!

Now that I have your attention, let me tell you about one of the nicest guys I have met that happens to be a really good golf instructor to boot, Bobby Hall. I kept hearing my golfing friends, both men, and women, rave about Bobby. It was more than just the lessons but the person himself. I scheduled a sit down to learn his secret; it was so much more.

Big Fish Restaurant and Bar, Orange Beach

We visited friends in Orange Beach Thursday afternoon and found ourselves hungry for something outstanding. There were many choices and many people out on Thursday night, but we hit it just right, and a table was waiting for us at Big Fish Restaurant and Bar.

From One Extreme to Another

Winter is a season of extremes. Technically, one more month to go. My mind looks at seasons as activities. There is an order to it. The build-up to Winter comes after Thanksgiving. Mid-December gives us an extreme number of social activities culminating with Christmas Day, then a mindless lull as we close a year and begin anew with New Year's Eve celebrations. Lots of football. Get it while you can. And hunting, a Southern tradition is in full swing.
Musings From The Cove


Not Senior in high school or college. Senior means, we get discounts at stores, Medicare, and our own parking spaces. Makes us sound so feeble and needy, but we absolutely are not. I mean senior as in after 65, wiser, and better.

A Good Day Exploring with Ben Raines

By now, most people know or have heard of Ben Raines. He’s made the news a lot, written books, and discovered things like the last slave ship, the Clotilda, and an underwater forest offshore of Gulf Shores.

Master Joe’s, Fairhope

One of Linda's and my favorite places to eat in Fairhope is Master Joe’s. Named for the owner and original chef, Joe Ou, the small restaurant on Section Street is always inviting and friendly. Joe has combined his Japanese training with a few American ingredients to create a wonderful array of palate-pleasing dishes.
