I think I'll be adding a new category of California things to write about...and that would be "It's the Little Things." I have found in my California travels that, truly, it's the little things that catch my attention, make me smile, and mean so much.
One such "little thing" happen ed while on the road with the Amgen Tour of California. Driving hundreds of miles was easy enough, but each day's weather was always in question and sometimes affected travel times. We experienced the best of California's sunshine and blue skies, along with some BIG winds and rain.
Arriving at Solvang's Wine Valley Inn & Cottages, in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, I experienced one of those "Little Things" moments. There on the nightstand was a small card that said: Wine Valley Inn & Cottages, Enjoy Your Stay. To assist you with planning your day, we are providing you with the weather forecast...
I had to smile. And the thought once again resinated through my head, "It's the little things..." Thank you Wine Valley Inn!"
