The exclusivity of this place is the ideal sanctuary for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle from city life. Our guest room was nestled in over 1,700 acres of land in a room category that they refer to as Bungalows. The resort also offers Fairway guest rooms(slightly smaller than the Bungalows), Villa Suites as well as Fairway Homes for those looking for more square footage and extra amenities.
Cordevalle is a relatively small resort with less than 45 rooms and suites, however every room on property looks to have a spectacular view of the rolling Santa Cruz mountains and of the meticulously groomed golf course. In addition to the golf course there is an 85 acre winery and vineyard that adds a touch of understated elegance and leisure. As you sit and daydream on the furnished balcony you'll come to realize how quiet and pristine a single moment can become from the simple pleasure of taking a moment at a time.

So we had packed up last night all good to go. At about 7.30am I walked the two blocks to the Hertz office to pick up the car. All went smoothly and thanks to my 'attention to detail/walking the route', the drive back to the hotel was a piece of cake. We checked out and the hotel Valet gave us some great advice about an alternative route than the one we had planned as the coast highway was, as we heard in the news, covered in fog. He suggested that we get 'off ...
Enjoyed breakast of fruit, scrambled eggs and bagels. Tanked up ready to go we headed to Monterey Bay and the world famous aquarium. The weather was beautiful. (We have had one wet day and one wet afternoon since we have been here and only two, what we would call, cold days - one in NY and the other on Vancouver Island - we have been blessed). Being the beginning of ...
... driving as we took the beautiful scenic drive from our house in Moss Beach to just north of Monterey. Plenty of oohs and ahhs from Anne and I as we watched Pacific waves crash up on the California coast for the length of the hour and a half drive. The kids - eh - not so much.
About two hours, just south of Santa Cruz got us to the Elkorn Slough. Katie and I as the rest of the group watched a safety video, got their ...
... lots of rich ladies tottering around. We park the RV outside one of many art galleries in town, selling paintings and sculptures for undisclosed sums. Dylan fancies a look in one so we wait for Taya to rise from her nap and head in. The owner is quite inviting bearing in mind we are obviously never going to buy one. The beach is a lovely white sand crescent, but its not a beach weather day so we explore the town instead.
We choose our lunch ...

One very cool adventure so far has to be the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I'm sure my enjoyment has nothing to do with the behind-the-glass tour of the penguins or the in-the-exhibit feeding of the seabirds. It probably was so great because while we were doing all of those just average activities, the commoners (or the people on the other side of the glass) were taking picures of us! For those of you who know me, ...
