We celebrated three birthdays this week – thedude’s 49th, and Frank and Dorothy’s 70th – at one of our favorite getaways, St. Orres in Gualala, California. We stayed in three different cabins during our trip, including the spectacular new “Black Chantrelle” cabin – Jim’s new favorite. The weather was perfect, and we were the only guests at the hotel. Ahhh… Tranquility.
Of course, we wouldn’t drive this far without stopping at a winery or two, so we visited the beautiful Navarro Winery and tasted their teriffic wines. Naturally, the girls forced us to visit Mendocino to satisfy their need to buy something completely useless, but we all had a great time anyway.
