from the editor

HIT THE ROAD Welcome to the travel issue. Whether you are itching to get out of town for the weekend or take a longer journey, we’ve got plenty of suggestions. Florida’s newest luxury resort is the JW Marriott on Marco Island, less than two hours away. A massive renovation of the former Marriott completed late last year upgraded it to the JW level and gave it the look of a Polynesian island getaway. Still, it has all the modern amenities, including a spa and extreme attention to detail that sets a vacation there apart. Instead of feeling like you’re traveling to the South Pacific, you can feel like you’re traveling back in time at the Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Va. The 2,000-acre property opened in 1778 is a designated National Historic Landmark. Two major hot springs flow onto the property, so guests can soak in mineral water just as Thomas Jefferson did in 1818. The resort also offers skiing, golf, skeet shooting, hiking, a spa and plenty of modern conveniences that blend seamlessly into history. Behind Door No. 3 in this travel issue of Bay is Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Colorado. It offers numerous outdoor diversions, including cross country skiing and snow tubing

in the winter and mountain biking, horseback riding and fly-fishing in the summer. There’s a spa, too, of course, to pamper those aching Florida bones after biking on real mountains. Our fashion spread was photographed at Sheltair executive airport between Tampa International Airport and International Plaza. This is where you can arrive five minutes before takeoff to hop on your own private plane or one you have leased. Sinking into a caramel-colored leather seat on one of the ExecuJet planes, I said I could fly to Australia for two days and be disappointed when the flight is over. Total comfort. Total privacy. But when Taylor Sanger drove up in the McLaren 650S that Dimmitt Automotive Group loaned us for the fashion shoot, I wasn’t an immediate convert. Yes, the doors open up instead of out. He explained why the carbon fiber “tub,” or “cockpit,” is stronger than steel. I wrapped my nonautomotive mind around that, and it pretty much made sense. I loved the red and black leather interior. But I had to admit that I still didn’t get why anyone needs a car that goes 210 mph. “You have to drive it to understand,” Taylor told me. “It’s instant adrenaline.” Perhaps Dimmitt had checked my driving record or seen the scrapes and nicks on my Acura MDX. Maybe it’s just

protocol for anyone who isn’t test driving a car with the intent to buy. But Taylor didn’t let me drive the McLaren. He did, however, take me for a ride in it. Now I get it. We went from 20 to 110 mph in six seconds. Once I caught my breath 30 minutes later, I said it felt like Test Track at Epcot on steroids. It felt daring. It felt out of this world but still in control. When I screamed for Taylor to slow down, he did so smoothly in seconds. No whiplash like I used to get on the Himalaya at the fair. Far from that. I still don’t want a McLaren. But I now understand why so many people love luxury sports cars. They give you a chance to leave it all behind, way behind, even if it’s just for 30 seconds. That’s what all travel allows us. Whether it’s to a fabulous resort, on a yacht you charter from St. Petersburg, in a mountain cabin or at a condo at the beach, travel releases and recharges us. I hope you enjoy this issue and start making plans. Thank you for reading, —Katherine Snow Smith Have comments, questions? Let us know.

always time for bubbly…

f

BY COLETTE BANCROFT

rance is one of my favorite travel destinations but, alas, one that my budget doesn’t let me visit often enough. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to console myself with a flute full of the flavor of France. Champagne is only as far away as the nearest wine store. (You can rest assured that if a wine is labeled “Champagne,” it really does hail from France. The appellation is fiercely protected.) Among Champagnes, the usual suspects are always delightful (Veuve Clicquot is a longtime favorite), but it’s lovely to try something new — and to find that an excellent Champagne doesn’t have to have a price tag in three figures.

PERTOIS-MORISET GRAND CRU BRUT BLANC DE BLANC One recent discovery for me is Pertois-Moriset Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blanc (about $40 at Total Wine). The winery was founded in 1951 by Yves Pertois and his wife, Janine Moriset, both third-generation winemakers. It’s run today by their son and his family, with 70 percent of their vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, including the four Grand Cru-rated villages of Cramant, Avize, Oger and Mesnil. The wine is an elegant pale straw color, and it explodes into a riot of tiny, vigorous bubbles in the glass, releasing aromas of ripe pear and yeasty brioche. Take a sip, and another, and those flavors layer over peaches and cream with hints of honey and vanilla, that rich mouth feel balanced by a subtle tart touch of clementine and a surprisingly crisp, stony finish. I’m happy to savor a wine this delicious all by itself, but in terms of food pairings, the Pertois-Moriset lends itself to a couple of the classics: oysters and caviar. Its lushness would provide a counterpoint to either the cool brininess of raw oysters or the smoky umami of caviar.


LALLIER BLANC DE BLANCS BRUT Another new find for me is Lallier Blanc de Blancs Brut (about $50 at Total Wine). This Champagne is made from 100 percent chardonnay grapes, 60 percent of them from vineyards in Ay, where winemaking dates back to the Roman era. The Lallier house was founded there in 1906. Its blanc de blanc is a pale green-gold, almost silvery, with a nose of toast, almonds and citrus, and columns of brisk bubbles. On the tongue, the wine’s velvety creaminess is braced with an undernote of minerals. The almond and toast flavors join soft apricot and crisp lime for a beautifully balanced mouthful. This Champagne too would pair beautifully with seafood, especially sushi, or with roasted chicken or goat cheese. I’d like it best with dessert — something luscious like a Grand Marnier souffle, or vanilla ice cream topped with caramelized white peach slices. That would keep me happy until I score that next ticket to France. istockphoto

FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELTS hampagne flutes like these will make you want to pop open a bottle for many occasions besides New Year’s, weddings and boat christenings. These glasses will look beautiful on the dining room table for Sunday brunch, on the marble kitchen island for a girls’ night or on the coffee table when curled up on the couch watching All About Eve.

A resort for all seasons BY KATHERINE SNOW SMITH HOT SPRINGS, VA.

S

pend a weekend at the 2,000-acre Omni Homestead Resort and you will understand how 23 presidents, from varying parties spanning 200 years all managed to agree it’s a wonderful getaway. I joined the ranks of Thomas Jefferson, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, Bill Clinton and both President Bushes last November when a college friend held her 50th birthday celebration at the hotel. It turned 250 years old itself in 2016. Just as the historic Don CeSar in St. Pete Beach is nicknamed the “pink wedding cake,” the Georgian-style Homestead, with a 12-story clock tower at the center and 250-foot-long front porch, is sometimes called the “red brick wedding cake.” It opened as an 18-room wooden hotel in 1766 so guests could enjoy the warm spring waters flowing on the property. Native Americans believed the springs, naturally heated to 104 degrees, had healing powers. Guests can still soak in the springs. There was a fire along the way, reconstruction, renovations and additions. The hotel, which now has 506 rooms, was bought by Omni Hotels & Resorts in 2013. Yet it still maintains much of its independent, historic feel with rooms offering a variety of striped wallpaper, bedspreads of chintz and white wicker towel stands. When my husband and I first stepped into the 215-foot long lobby called the Great Hall, I went straight to one of the roaring fires in the fireplaces taller than I am and vowed not to leave.

The Homestead offers skiing, hiking, golf on three courses, archery, fly fishing, skeet shooting, horseback riding, bowling, indoor swimming, outdoor swimming and a top of the line spa. But fireside chatting and reading are my favorite winter sports. (No wonder Franklin Roosevelt was also a fan.) The Great Hall is great indeed with 14-foot ceilings, but small groupings of love seats and wing chairs make it a cozy spot for guests to enjoy cocktails, hot chocolate and the daily spread of afternoon tea. Our group had cocktails at Jefferson’s Restaurant & Bar that night. Then the guests from various paths of my friend’s life made their way to the Crystal Room for the birthday dinner. We were met by rows of white Ionic columns, a wall of arched glass doorways and gleaming wood floors. The menu was Southern cuisine at its best with garlic chicken, roasted winter squash, eggplant casserole, butter beans, a farmer’s salad and mint chocolate ice cream cake for dessert. A live band played after dinner for dancing. Another friend joked that Jay Gatsby might be lurking about somewhere. It was that kind of night and that kind of place. Overthe-top elegance.

Even when you’re not attending a birthday bash, a coat and tie are required in the Homestead’s dining room, and “resort wear” is preferred in the Great Hall. My husband rose early the next day to head out with an Orvis-certified guide for fly fishing. They went to a nearby stream that has both wild and stocked rainbow trout. The Homestead has more than 4 miles of catch-and-release waters that encompass 13 waterfalls. He came back with photos of three catches and bragging rights. In the afternoon we joined two friends for skeet shooting at the Homestead’s 84-year-old gun club. The only exposure I’ve ever had to skeet was when Andy Griffith had a short-lived romance with Karen, who skunked him at the annual skeet shooting tournament. (Barney was insulted, but Andy was grudgingly impressed.) I had never even held a gun before, except for one that shot BBs at summer camp. I admitted this to our welcoming skeet instructor, and he wasn’t surprised. (Was it my 3inch wedge heel boots or the fringed leather clutch tucked under my arm that gave me away?) Actually, the gun club hosts novices and experts year round on four different skeet fields. Instructors have seen it all. Our friends and my husband, who had shot skeet before, nicked a few clay targets after getting used to their speed and the guns. I, on the other hand, shattered the first one in the sky. And the second. I nicked the third and fourth and was laughing so hard by the fifth I could barely pull the trigger. I share this not to brag (I did plenty of that at the Homestead, believe me), but to illustrate what travel to new destinations offers. You can relax in total comfort, yet leave your comfort zone to try something different.

A FARAWAY PLACE THAT’S NOT SO FAR AWAY BY KATHERINE SNOW SMITH

A MASSIVE RENOVATION OF THE FORMER MARRIOTT ON MARCO ISLAND has elevated the gulffront property to a JW Marriott Resort, making it the latest luxury hotel in Florida. But one key feature that’s been a facet of the hotel since it was first developed as a small, independently owned getaway in the 1960s remains: Guests drive up a hill to get to the lobby so when they walk in, the first thing they see through two-story windows is an expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico.

“You can tell people who haven’t been here before when they walk in the doors. They are in no rush to check in. They just come over and stand at the top of the stairs and look out,” said Danny Hegarty, front office supervisor. The main pool is a level below, so guests are looking straight out at the water, not the backs of deck chairs or people milling around Quinn’s, an indoor-outdoor restaurant. The complete makeover and additions to the former Marriott allowed it to surpass several of the the hotel chain’s higher levels of luxury and become a JW property, which is one notch below the company’s crown jewel, Ritz-Carlton. A 94-room adults-only tower with a rooftop pool will open later this year, completing a $320-million makeover. Marco Island, with a beach 3.5 miles long, is a 2 1/2-hour hour drive from Tampa Bay. But when travelers cross the bridge from Naples, it seems much farther from the real world or even picturesque Florida.

We used to live in Hawaii. The first thing we said when we walked in is it’s very Polynesian. The fire dancer on the beach reminds me of a luau. It’s very authentic.” IAN FINLEY, a visitor from West Palm Beach

The resort combines the feel of a distant, exotic land with extreme luxury. The high-peaked ceiling running the length of the lobby has a crisp white and brown giraffe motif. The print is repeated subtly throughout the hotel with white lines on sheer white drapes and irregular-size glossy marble slabs on the floor. Korals sushi restaurant off the lobby features a series of more than 40 pieces of smooth, curved wood stretching from floor to ceiling around the bar that replicate mangrove roots. At Ario, which specializes in dry aging meat, lights hang like crystal stalactites. The SPA by JW has furnishings of natural burled wood among pebbled walls and stone floors. It also boasts its own pool and a hot tub of mineral waters with a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Palm trees grow in and around the JW’s main pool. More than 20 thatched-roof chickee huts dot the white sandy beach where a fire dancer entertains a circle of guests every night at sunset. “We used to live in Hawaii. The first thing we said when we walked in is it’s very Polynesian,” said Ian Finlay, who came with his wife and boys from West Palm Beach to celebrate son Kylar’s 14th birthday. “The fire dancer on the beach reminds me of a luau. It’s very authentic.” Nine-year-old Keian appreciated how the fire dancer patiently posed for pictures with everyone on the beach and the slides in the second pool. “I found the staff very friendly, very helpful,” added Leslie Finlay.

That’s what Hegarty likes to hear. The employees went through training when the hotel became a JW property and were taught to always be on the lookout to satisfy a guest’s slightest need or request. Guest service associates circulate the lobby with iPads ready to show people how to find the nearby eagle sanctuary, check tee times for golf courses or print boarding passes. (They stand with arms clasped behind their backs so they are more approachable than with arms crossed.) New Yorker Michael Phillips, in town for a convention, came down with a cold and had to miss his group’s final banquet.

“I was sitting in my room and there was a knock on the door,” he said. “Someone from the hotel had brought up a full plate of food from the dinner. I had never heard of that.” It’s not a bad place to be stuck in the room. Each of the JW’s 726 rooms is now updated with sleek wood and smooth marble throughout. Suites boast wrap-around balconies, two refrigerators and a separate dressing area, with multiple closets including one just for shoes. After guests make a reservation, Stella Spera, the hotel’s vacation planner, contacts them to go over the menu of options from water scooter eco-tours, a massage or stargazing through a telescope on the beach. She’ll also arrange a airboat tour of the Everglades, a 40-minute drive away. Other guests fly for 45 minutes to Key West or take a 3 1/2 hour ferry there. Before the resort converted to a JW, Spera arranged for a sand sculptor to create a hand holding a ring box for a guest who proposed on the beach. Monograms are another popular sculpture for birthdays and anniversaries. She’s hidden Easter eggs for one guest’s children to spontaneously come across on the beach and decorated a Christmas tree for another family’s room. “We do things like a private dinner on the beach or cake and champagne in a cabana a lot,” she said. Some conference attendees have walked in their rooms to find their name etched on a bar of soap and carved into wooden coat hanger. (That’s when it’s clearly okay to take them home.)

Guests enjoy the spa and its private pool.

BY TOM WUCKOVICH

T The Rockies are the backdrop for the lush meadows and Fraser River surrounding Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa that offers rustic yet elegant accommodations, fine dining, spa treatments, and an array of winter and summer outdoor activities. Since 1938, the resort and spa has hosted guests for vacations, quick getaways, corporate retreats and family events.

he beauty of Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa is that its footprint in this wilderness oasis pays homage to the environment, treading as lightly as possible on the land while still affording visitors the rustic western experience they long for. Inside this lush woodland in Colorado’s Fraser Valley just outside of Denver are rambling rivers teeming with fish, green glades where deer share the sweet grasses with elk and moose, and valleys hidden from the view of civilization, known only to the sun, moon and stars that look down upon them through a roof of wooden sticks. The original ranch homestead was built in 1937 by Margaret Radcliff and served as a dairy until the brothers Yager — Dan, Louis and George — took over and began operating as Devil’s Thumb Ranch vacation property. It remained both a working ranch and dude ranch until 1972, when it became known as more of a cross country skiing destination, but without many guest amenities.

MARCH 2017

The ranch’s fate changed again in 2001, when current owners Bob and Suzanne Fanch thwarted developers who were intent on building residences and a golf course. Instead, the couple moved ahead with their vision of creating a special reserve where visitors to the valley could still have an authentic Colorado experience celebrating the soul of the West. To house expected guests, they inserted 15 ridge-top cabins with plenty of space for privacy. In 2007, a 52-room main lodge was added, and one year later the ranch’s smaller spa got its own homestead in a nearby meadow. More recently, in 2013, the 35-room High Lonesome Lodge, barn and wine grotto completed the accommodations. For an intimate gathering space, the Broad Axe Barn, a conference center and events venue built from a reconstructed Civil War-era barn, rounded out the additions. The activities visitors can experience include horseback riding through the meadows, creeks and hilltops; zip-lining above stands of sturdy green giants; mountain biking and hiking that could comprise a foray into the many trails of the Arapaho National Forest; or Rocky Mountain National Park, 45 minutes from the ranch. For young guests, there is the option of a two-hour, half-day, or full-day excursion to the Cowpoke Camp while mom and dad can fish, hike, mountain bike or relax at the spa. Guests who fill their days with a variety of adventures can also find relaxation in Rachel’s Pool, a geothermally heated pool and hot tub that is anything but ordinary. The pool is shaped like a natural pond to blend in with the landscape. Fly-fishing, a Colorado staple, is a cherished pursuit on the ranch, where anglers can fish on 4 miles of Ranch Creek as well as a mile of the Fraser River, both meandering through the ranch property. In the spring and early days of summer, the creek and river rush through the ranchland in a spectacular display of the power of water. Trout reaching the size of a tennis racket frequent these mountain runoffs.

The activities visitors can experience include horseback riding through the meadows, creeks and hilltops; zip-lining above stands of sturdy green giants; mountain biking and hiking that could comprise a foray into the many trails of the Arapaho National Forest.

In the winter, recreation options still abound. There are frozen lakes to skate across and thrilling hills to sled down, cross country and snowshoe trails, horseback and sleigh rides. And only minutes away is Winter Park, one of America’s premier downhill ski resorts. A bit farther up the road is Grand County, where five quaint towns beg to be explored. The area also is the western gateway for Rocky Mountain National Park. The drive over the park’s Trail Ridge Road reveals elk and moose grazing, some with young calves trailing closely behind their mothers, breathtaking vistas of lakes and hillsides and even an abandoned ghost town called Lulu City. The former mining settlement boomed for only a brief five years, beginning in 1879, before miners and settlers deserted it for more promising digs. Colorado’s two largest lakes are here — Grand Lake and Lake Granby — one and two respectively, in size. Lake Granby offers more than 150 miles of scenic shoreline, ideal for fishing, camping and hiking. Locals insist that at certain times, the spirits of American Indian women and children can be heard moaning from the lake, lamenting their deaths due to those early tribal wars. Fact or fiction, it makes for an interesting campfire conversation.

Go from your home to a Manhattan hotel in under three hours. Go from 0 to 100 mph in under six seconds. And look great doing it. Private planes and luxury sports cars are the ultimate ways to travel in style. But no matter how you reach your destination, you can look fabulous when you arrive in elegant, travel-friendly clothes. Whether you are packing them or wearing them on planes, trains and automobiles, these outfits will look flawless and flattering throughout your journey.

Berry lightweight sweater with cutout details on chest, back and elbows, $168. Double drop gold and pearl necklace with Swarovski crystals, $348. All from Paris Isabella. Palazzo pants with pockets and pleats, $74. Gold shimmer linen tote, $95. All from Pippa Pelure.


ALL PACKED UP Leather fringe is a big trend for handbags. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adorning apparel, too, and in this case, taking a basic black shirt to a higher level. This leather vest is a separate piece that can be worn with multiple components of your wardrobe. The leggings also have a distinctive touch, with rhinestones and rivets no bigger than the head of a nail down the side.

PLAN YOUR ADVENTURE LEASE A PLANE

TAKE A RIDE

ExecuJet leases private planes at the Sheltair private airport in Tampa that carry seven to 12 passengers to New York, Nantucket, the Caribbean, Europe and anywhere else your compass desires.

There were 3,500 McLarens manufactured worldwide last year, compared with 203,000 Porsches, said Taylor Sanger of Dimmitt Automotive Group. Fifty of those McLarens sold were from the dealership’s St. Petersburg location. The other Florida dealers selling the rare car are in Palm Beach and Miami.

There’s no need to get to the airport 90 minutes before departure. Arriving on the tarmac next to International Plaza five minutes before takeoff is fine. Call ahead to request food or beverages you prefer. Cristal is the most common request, says Rob Jones of ExecuJet. Rates vary greatly depending on the plane, destination and number of passengers. ExecuJet designs and prices each trip individually.

McLaren, based in Surrey, England, added road cars to its line of Formula One race cars in 2012. It has been making race cars since 2001. This fashion spread features a McLaren 650S, which is 641 horsepower and sells for $285,000. The car’s pulpit is made of layer upon layer of woven carbon fiber, which is stronger than steel, Sanger said.

See execujetcharter.com for more information. With the push of a button, the McLaren can adjust the pressure in its hydraulic suspension from a flexible ride for comfort to a tighter ride for speed. “You can do track days on the weekends and drive it to work during the week,” Sanger said. (Sebring International Raceway is about 90 minutes away.) See tampabay.mclaren.com for more information.

ost mornings, Margo Harrod walks into the yard at daybreak, gloved, clippers in one hand, harvest bag around her waist, often a head lamp on her brow. “Dig, plant, fertilize, trim … I do everything flower-related,” Harrod said, contemplating the 200 rose bushes rimming the verdant expanse of her Bayshore Boulevard front yard. “This is my therapy time and I love it.” It started with a dozen bushes 20 years ago, “in flip-flops, no gloves” (ouch!), motivated by a South Tampa garden tour “that changed my life.” Harrod, 65, and husband, Gary, have lived in Tampa since 1980 when he was tapped to begin Trammell Crow’s commercial development in Central Florida. He later formed Harrod Properties Inc., eventually joined by their son Chad. Through the years, Margo Harrod has been actively involved in the Junior League of Tampa, the Child Abuse Council, the Florida Orchestra auxiliary and the Rose Garden Circle.

My ‘Voluptuous!’ roses are a showstopper. They have a light fragrance and bloom nonstop.” MARGO HARROD

Margo Harrod at her home on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa.

Recollections of her pediatrician father gardening at her childhood home in San Antonio, Texas, and the fragrant roses her grandparents’ raised only two houses away, float through Harrod’s mind as she works. “Trial and error,” she says, taught her about deadheading, where to plant for optimal sun exposure and how to cluster multiples for more impact. She constantly tweaks landscape architect Ted Kempton’s original design. “I plant what makes me happy,” she said. “If it doesn’t make me happy, it’s out. “Some roses I’ve had for 20 years, nonperformers are replaced within a year.” One early lesson: Bees are not the enemy. “I love my bees. We need bees,” Harrod said. “We share the same roses, and I often get stung.” It’s the two-legged pests that bug her, the kind who climb over the wall and help themselves to a few roses. Hence, the security cameras in the trees, she notes. Very rarely does Harrod cut the blooms to display indoors, insisting “they belong outside for everyone to enjoy.” The weddings of all three Harrod daughters took place in the rose garden. On Mondays, Harrod follows herbicide sprayer Todd

Morgan as he works to control insects and diseases that can harm roses. He wears protective gear, from fingertips to boots, and a respirator. Her Saturday routine includes stopping by Hardin’s Nursery on S Dale Mabry Highway, where she values the wide selection and unlimited expertise. “I go sometimes just to look, plan and maybe not buy,” she said. “I always come away from there knowing a little more about my roses.” Will she name a favorite in her ever-growing collection? How could she possibly settle on just one? “I have a lot of favorites for different reasons,” she said. “My Voluptuous! roses are a showstopper,” Harrod said, pointing to a vivid fuchsia cluster of 20-some bushes in the southwest corner. “They have a light fragrance and bloom nonstop. “Maybe Grandiflora, a cross between a hybrid tea and a Floribunda, gives you the best of both.” February brought a flurry of activity in the Harrod yard as all the bushes are pruned, trimmed by two-thirds and stripped of their leaves. For 45 to 60 days the roses rest and regenerate. Harrod patiently awaits spring’s awakening and the restorative power of her garden at the end of March.

ancy and Steve Westphal keep a few changes of clothes on their 55-foot Prestige yacht at all times. Though the busy couple own and operate six restaurants, they try to head out on their new power boat, Cat’s Meow, at least twice a month. Sometimes they board the yacht docked at St. Petersburg’s Vinoy Yacht Basin on a moment’s notice. “If the weather is nice and the calendar is open, we can just go,” Steve said. “Sometimes we just go out for sunset or we’ll do a threeday weekend,” added Nancy. They’ll head down under the Sunshine Skyway bridge and dock at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota. Foldable bikes stored onboard allow them to bike through St. Armands Circle, Nancy said. Egmont Key is another favorite destination for the day or a night or two. “Our favorite trip is out to Tampa to the Convention Center. We tie up and go to a boat show or hockey game,” Steve, 57, said. It was at a boat show in Miami in January 2016 that they fell for the Prestige 550. Steve loved that it has a hardtop flybridge where the captain can drive the boat up in the open air and that the protective main cabin has another fully equipped helm. You can have the wind in your hair and the smell of salt air on nice days, and air conditioning and the game on TV on sweltering ones. Though they had to wait six months while the yacht was built in France, Nancy, 53, liked that they could custom design it.

Steve and Nancy Westphal’s 2017 55-foot Prestige 550 Fly yacht in the Vinoy Marina, St. Petersburg.

They picked white leather for the couches in the main cabin, white Corian and stainless steel for the galley, and blond beechwood throughout. The master bathroom has a sleek white vessel sink and a black marble countertop. Both say the spacious design of the three-bedroom yacht was another big draw. There are two rooms at the bow and the master bedroom at the stern. (A small captain’s quarters also has its own bathroom and a large window.)

“Our guests can be at their end, and we’re at our end. You can meet in the middle for lunch,” Steve said, laughing. The roomy layout allowed Steve to throw a surprise party with 30 guests for Nancy on her July 31 birthday, the day the boat arrived in St. Petersburg. They also hosted 15 people onboard for her mother’s 85th birthday. “We went out by the Dalí. I could watch the whole Rowdies game from the flybridge,” Nancy recounted. Cat’s Meow is also available for charter, with Steve sometimes serving as captain and Nancy as first mate. Nancy earned her sea legs on lakes in her native Wisconsin. Steve grew up on boats at Indian Shores and has had around 20 in his life. Their most recent charter passengers for an afternoon were about a dozen Anaheim Ducks players in town to play the Tampa Bay Lightning. Guests chartering Cat’s Meow can request a meal catered by the Westphals’ St. Petersburg restaurants, including Parkshore Grill and 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House. They can also pick up a packed picnic basket from the Annex, the latest eatery in the couple’s lineup. It’s also no problem to cook onboard. There’s a grill and sink on the flybridge, and a fully equipped galley with a microwave and dishwasher. A washer and dryer onboard are other perks for life at

sea. The Skyhook automatic positioning system also adds to the convenience, Nancy said. It will hold the yacht in place without the anchor being dropped. “I can go down and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich while the boat stays in a fixed GPS position,” Steve said. The name Cat’s Meow came about because Steve loves cats and worked a feline reference into the name of each restaurant’s holding company. Parkshore Grill is held by Top Cat. The official name of 400 Beach Seafood is Alley Cat. The holding company for the Hangar restaurant at Albert Whitted Airport? Kitty Hawk. “And Nancy is a Leo,” Steve added.

next time COMING APRIL 23

COMING HOME AGAIN Dorothy said it best: “There’s no place like home.” There certainly are no places like the homes Bay will be featuring in the upcoming April Homes issue. A Bayshore Boulevard condo in Tampa has a brand new look that rivals the view. A Snell Isle home in St. Petersburg has a blurred line between indoors and outdoors and reality and infinity. A midcentury house in Sarasota would make even Don Draper envious. The issue will feature trends for wall coverings, flooring and upholstery. We’ll have pillows, planters and much more. So get ready to click your heels together and be transported to another place. — Katherine Snow Smith
