La Quinta, California
Everyone else in the world is blogging so I thought I'd give it a try.
It is a good time to start as we begin preparing for our next summer trip. On the agenda: 1) Mammoth to stay with friends and enjoy the Jazz Festival there; 2) Healdsburg to see old friends, attend the world famous Big Boules of Dry Creek's Bastille Day party, and maybe golf a little; and 3) Santa Barbara/Bacara for a night. It will be nice to get away from the heat.
