With racing season is over for John, we wanted to get away where we can take liesurely bike rides together through wine country. So after a half day of work, we escaped to the northern coast of California to Sonoma for a little rest and relaxation.
We drove westward into California until we reached the legendary Highway 1, a major north-south state highway that runs along most of the Pacific coastline of the state. Then headed north along the winding but scenic route. At times the marine layer was thick and visibility was low which made it somewhat difficult to drive through the fog. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry to get anywhere so we took our time, stopping to admire the view in the coves.
Eventually we reached our destination at Timber Cove Inn. It's a small hotel with about 49 rooms and one suite with views of the ocean and forest.
Our room was super cute. It's the only forest room with a hot tub and there was a wooden winding staircase which led to the loft bed above with a skylight. After we freshened up, we made our way to the bar for drinks and appetizer of tuna tartar. Then called it a night.
