don’t know where you are reading this from, but my guess is that it’s not as sunny and balmy as the Monterey Peninsula is right this moment. Here, we seem to have been enjoying a winter heat wave for the last month or so and the forecasts say that there are more warm days on the way. Maybe it’s time to escape the cold, snow or rain, and come for a little visit. Martin Luther King’s birthday comes on the twentieth and makes for a great long weekend getaway. Speaking of long weekends, one of the best ways to spend a vacation day would be to take your special someone on a long weekend over Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Friday this year. Nothing says “special” like one of our Romance Getaway packages complete with chocolate, wine and flowers to set the stage for presenting that someone with the perfect Valentine’s gift. Either way, enjoy the good weather while it lasts.
