Calistoga get-away

As promised, I have many photos to share from Jeff's and my trip to Calistoga last week. We stayed at Indian Springs, a resort-spa, for four days and three nights. It was delightful and just what I needed!

We spent a lot of time poolside, lazing about, reading, eating delicious lunches with the random smattering of tasty goodies we picked up from the local grocery store.

Oh, and of course we spent a lot of time in the pool! Naturally occurring geysers keep the mineral pool heated to 102 degrees.

We also traipsed around town, trying out different restaurants (when we weren't barbecuing) and slurping up delicious smoothies at the Calistoga Roastery.

On our last night there, we went out for an amazing dinner at the Martini House in St. Helena. But we had time to kill so we stopped and had some snacks and beer at the Silverado Brewery. They had a pretty tasty ESB.

On the way back we took our time, stopped at a winery, had lunch at another winery, and enjoyed the lovely back roads of the Napa valley area.

I'm still feeling refreshed from the getaway. And I'm looking into The National Holistic Institute for affordable massage options for a semi-regular basis. Trying to maintain that balance I'm always striving for.


  1. Hey! Just came here from your flickr stream...great pics of your holiday. Cute. Awwww. Wish my hubs and I had done more of that before the kids arrived. Anyhoo, I'll look forward to reading more.
