FC: California ~ June 2011 | TRAVEL Adventure
1: Jeff's longtime friend, Keith, and his wife, Judy, invited us down to their 'cabin' in Arnold, CA. We made it a road trip, and had such a wonderful time. We can't wait to return!!
3: Our first day we left Bellingham and only stopped to have a picnic lunch along a river side. We continued on, and spent the first night at the Buena Sera Inn, in Grants Pass, OR. It was a small 14-room motel that had been renovated into a unique Inn, with all differently decorated rooms. It felt like a European B&B. It was certainly funky ~ but quite charming.. | We also returned five nights later on our return trip.
4: Mt. Shasta was beautiful!
6: Cabin | the
9: Evening dinners and breakfasts were spent at the cabin! One night Judy taught Jeff how to make flour tortillas from scratch and we then enjoyed chicken fajitas. Another evening Jeff and I did garlic mashed cauliflower, and steaks on the bar.b.q. We made Brummel Benedict one morning, and Judy made pancakes another. Wonderful food and wine was enjoyed by all!!
10: So many wineries to experience but not enough time! With Keith & Judy we did enjoy a few: Laraine Winery, Coppermine out in the country, and Renner in downtown Murphys. Murphys is a very charming little town set in the foothills of the Sierras. The cabin in Arnold was only a few miles away from Murphys, Murphys cute downtown main street is filled with wine tasting rooms, and also vineyards in the surrounding country sides. We can't wait to return!!!!
20: Returning home...
21: Our new friends...
