Hike, Wine, Sunsets

Go for a hike in beautiful countryside in the morning, grab a bite at a local restaurant serving local ingredients, taste wine at an organic winery in the afternoon and head to the beach in the evening to watch the sunset over the great Pacific Ocean. This is definitely the life! Of course we have […]

Wineland 2015 Day 2

Day 2 started with the hubs on a wanted poster!

We took advantage of the wonderful opportunity to¬†go on a¬†couple free self-guided tours of […]

Paradise Ridge
