About The Guaranteed Performance Golf School
The first thing you should know about Bethel Inn’s golf school is that the student/instructor ratio is 3:1, meaning everyone gets lots of personal attention and the coach and students can actually play a round of golf together. I knew straight away that I was going to like golf pro, Mark Mallory, when he scolded husbands about shouting “Keep Your Head Down!” to their wives – explaining that was not the true problem. Golf pros Mark and Niko escorted us to the dedicated golf training range where they put us through our paces and reveled all kinds of wonderful golf tips…. Wondering how much to bend your knees? Simple, “Imagine you’re standing in your ski boots.” – brilliant!
If you’re venturing to the southern region of the UK on vacation, no trip would be complete without exploring some of the quaint English towns in the county of Cornwall.

While coastal beaches and historic landmarks are in abundance in Cornwall, it is Newquay that boasts some of the finest coastal areas in the UK. It is far from just a lovely seaside town in the south-west however; it also has a number of attractions to keep all ages entertained throughout their break.
The State of Connecticut recently ran a “Fan Favorite” campaign for residents and visitors to vote for their favorite town in Connecticut. The winner was the charming town of Niantic, a village of East Lyme, located a short distance from Mystic. I had never been to the Connecticut shore, so just had to see what everyone was raving about. My visit just so happened to coincide with a visit by Governor Malloy who was presenting the town with a video. It all started with a video the town submitted to the Fan Favorite contest, have a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM0tROLWfVY . After one day in Niantic I knew exactly why this wonderful small town was voted Connecticut’s favorite town.
Long haul flights are taxing for everyone and children in particular can struggle with being restricted whilst flying to a far away location. Other than the standard in-flight films, colouring books and things to read there is very little for children to do. This is why it is always best to be prepared for the length of the flight and do everything you can to keep your children entertained.
Preparation Is Essential. You need to begin to prepare your children for what to they will experience on the flight a few weeks in advance. This way they will be aware of what will be happening, how they will feel, and what the outcome of the flight will be. It’s especially important to explain about seat belts and why everyone will be seated and buckled in for take off and landing.

Throwing caution to the wind we decided to try to escape to the coast of Maine during the busiest week of the summer season. Summer doesn’t officially begin in New England until July 4th, and this year a heat wave only heightened everyone’s desire to getaway. Finding a last minute room anywhere in Maine during the July 4th weekend was unlikely, but after scanning a few bed and breakfast sites, we were lucky to grab a room at the Dockside Guest Quarters in York Maine. This is truly one of the most picturesque and quiet settings in the York Harbor/ Ogunquit area. The inn is located on Harris Island and affords their quests beautiful waterfront views.
We were looking for peace and quiet and busy hotels and 4th of July crowds were not for us during this weekend getaway. We arrived while the inn was setting up for afternoon tea which offered quite a delicious spread, and the view was breathtaking.
