It's Far Too Hot out

And because of that (or at least that's my excuse) I've had a variety of Beach Boys, Surf Rock and the like on my iPod...but I haven't been able to get this out of my head.

Maps and Things!

If you would like  some of the nuts and bolts...Maps, Links, Apps.
Here is a map of some of the lcoations we went.

For our local travel we used a really useful app. It let us download local maps, without needing a internet connection. Plus, we could import our google map above:
Maps.Me (Opens in a new window)
We also used Hangouts Dialer a bunch to call home. Phone calls via Wifi!:

Goodbye Vacation!

Well, the inevitable post.
Hope you enjoyed reading and peeking in. It's been an amazing adventure.
Plus...Kelly is the coolest and I love her.
And now...

One Last Dinner Out

So we went back to a place that we enjoyed near the hotel - Gallagher & Co Bistro.
Delightful meal, friendly staff.

Food and Trip Back

Cute little restaurant attached to the distillery. Amazing whiskey bread pudding.


Amazing distillery, amazing historic site. One of the prettiest distilleries you could ever visit.
