Mike and Mary treated us all to a nice relaxing weekend at the Carmel Valley Lodge, the same place that we had a nice weekend a couple years ago. Its out in Carmel Valley (obviously) and is close to a nice tiny downtown area, a lot of restaurants, and even more wineries. Monterey County has some great wineries (not as great as Paso though!) and this place seems like a good place to start. Just like last time we were there, it was raining pretty good but that didn’t deter us from having a great time. Although we didn’t make it to any tasting rooms, I definitely did not miss out on “tasting” some good wine and some good beer.
We also got to celebrate Dave’s birthday, which is on Tuesday. The big Three-Oh. You’re gettin’ old, Dave! I mean.. Happy Birthday, Dave!
