ValentineCandy is great ... but why not spend time camping with your sweetheart!

Chocolates and flowers are the most common gifts for Valentine's Day - and they are surely appreciated. But what about doing something different -- give the gift of your time and an adventure! Go camping! Pack up the RV or tent, and plan on an adventure. You'll still be able to sneak in some romance ... long walks in the forest or along the beach, a beautiful sunset, a crackling campfire, or maybe just watch the fog roll in. Maybe this year's gourmet dinner consists of hobo pies cooked over a campfire and a glass of wine - I'm sure you've heard food always tastes better when camping!

Wherever you go you'll be spending time together and making memories. Make a reservation today! (Oh, and don't forget to slip a box of chocolates under her pillow!)

Winter is Bird Time in the Central Valley

Snow GeeseIf you are traveling through California’s Central Valley this winter, take the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular migratory bird life along the famed Pacific Flyway. The Pacific Flyway is a major north-south route of travel for migratory birds in the Americas, extending from Alaska to Patagonia. Every year, migratory birds travel some or all of this distance both in spring and in fall, following food sources, heading to breeding grounds, or travelling to overwintering sites.

A great resource for planning your route is the website of California Watchable Wildlife, This website features over 80 of the state’s top wildlife viewing areas, which are marked by Watchable Wildlife’s brown binocular logo signs. Besides finding viewing sites and an event calendar, you can create your own customized itinerary to bring along on your travels.
