Autumn is finally here once again! I’ve been meaning to get to these since last week. The Syrian situation and the Quadrennial Black Mass got in the way. I’ll keep this short – like day trip or weekend short. In fact, I’ll keep it pictorial short.

These are rather East-coast-centric but, then again, so am I.

Helen, Georgia

Georgia’s little alpine mountain village. Avoid the commercialized outlet mess outside the center of the old town.

The Biltmore / Asheville, N.C.

Thing big. Huge, rather. Try the night lights before Christmas.

Saint George Island, F.L.

Life’s a beach, especially when it’s deserted. I’ve found the water just fine on Christmas Day and literally had the while place to myself.

Destination 360.

Newburyport, Mass.

Better than Gloster or Salem in my book. Lunch at Michael’s then happy time at the Thirsty Whale (while the women folk shop).

Stone Ridge Properties.

Boone / Blowing Rock, N.C.

Good Gawd! I love this place.

There you go. Five great places to slow down, chill out, and smoke a good cigar this fall!

You’re welcome.
