Some more photos from our mini-vacation up the Central Coast.
1-4: Taken at and around our favorite winery.
5-13: The Madonna Inn. Have you been? It's super kitsch! All of the rooms have a theme. Our room was the Tack Room ( "tack"as in horses...not "tacky"...but some might argue that would apply--the bed had a red leather comforter!). My new (vintage) dress matched the decor. I love it when that happens. (I completely copied Joslyn on the dress, btw--after seeing her posts. I found my dress here.)
In recent years they added a pool with gorgeous views, and a spa where we had amazing massages. They also have an old school steak house (get the filet) that is adjacent to a dance floor & stage where standards are played by a live band most nights, and locals come to show off their moves.
14: Villa Creek in Paso. Always have great meals here- they have a seasonal menu featuring mostly organic & local/regional/ California grown/raised & produce, meats, cheeses and wines.
More trip pics tomorrow!
