Seat Review: Delta Comfort+ on the MD88

I just got back from a quick trip to Atlanta and for the first time this year I got to experience Delta's Comfort+ cabin. Comfort Plus was part of Delta's rebranding of its cabins earlier this year. (Previously known as Economy Comfort) In addition to the name change Delta added a few benefits to these seats. More on that below.

Restaurant Review: Table Washington, DC

If you are up for an interesting menu that challenges your tastebuds, in a casual setting, check out Table in Washington, DC.  Before trying it out I had heard and read many reviews about this eatery just steps from the Washington Convention Center and a few blocks from Chinatown.  Some reviews were good, some not so good, so I was interested to try it for myself.

We just wrapped up a four day, three stop cruise around the middle Chesapeake Bay.  This is a section of the bay around the Potomac River and is south of Annapolis and north of Norfolk.  This cruise included three stops, Tangier Island, Virginia, Crisfield, Maryland and Solomons Island, Maryland.  If you're a boater make sure you check out our boating specific information at the end of each destination.
