Vineyard Hopping for Families – Healdsburg, California

February 14, 2011 No Comments   The Northern California valley is lush and green, the sunset is rosy over the hills, and the vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. We’re not far from Napa in miles but far from the crush of wine buyers and tasters and expensive boutique hotels that accompany it. It’s a bucolic view ...

October 23, 2010 1 Comment What child of any age – including you adults out there – doesn’t love a Ferris Wheel, a meri-go- round or a roller coaster.  Better yet, who doesn’t love coupling these attractions with sea air and a wooden boarding, the smell of the ocean mingling with popcorn, cotton candy, and french fries.

Autumn by the Sea: Mendocino, CA

October 21, 2010 2 Comments There’s something wonderful about taking your kids to a non-tropical beach in autumn. You don’t have to worry about too much sun exposure because they’re already wearing a sweatshirt; you don’t have to bring the beach umbrella, the sun hats, the water toys.

October 21, 2010 No Comments After we left Bodega Bay, stuffed with fresh crab and carrying kites with our luggage, we weren’t quite ready to return to urban life, even if that brought us to the wonderful cable cars and chocolate shops of San Francisco.    Instead we headed for Tomales Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore just about ...

Small Town, Good Times in Trinidad California

October 7, 2010 No Comments Trinidad, California is a really small town, and I do mean small, on California‘s northern Humboldt County Coast. How small is it? Actually, with less than three hundred residents it’s the smallest incorporated city in California as well as one of the oldest, and thanks to the curving shore line here, one of the furthest ...
