Southern Meadows Cruisers & Adventure Seekers

All have returned safe and sound from our January adventure to the Caribbean. And an adventure it was!…with three days at sea both going and returning rocking and rolling with high winds.

We had great service with Executive Transportation’s Mike as a driver. He says they can arrange transportation just about anywhere. So here’s the question: Would you like to schedule a cruise out of Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ sometime?

Since we have a good source for transportation, how about day trips to Longwood Gardens, Candlelight Theater in Arden, Sight and Sound in Lancaster, Philadelphia, Washington DC and other fun places? Or even overnights to Williamsburg?

If you have any ideas about places to visit, send me a note, and I’ll see what I can find out.
