TRAVEL
The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Seeing is believing

If you want to make sure the house and the spouse are in good order when you're away, TelyHD may be just the ticket. If you have HDTV and a Skype account, you hook up the device (easy enough for a nongeek), sign in to your Skype account and voilà — it's visual Skype on steroids (depending on the size of your TV). Yes, you can skip TelyHD and use a laptop equipped with a webcam, but this felt spacious and relaxed. Caveat: I called a colleague in Washington, who didn't have her makeup on either. We scared each other. Info: $249, http://www.telyhd.com —C.H.
