Gardens and Eatin': Sycamore Mineral Springs

The first trip Bill and I ever took was to Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort in Avila Beach. Last week, since we were headed up north to visit family, we decided to make it a trip down Memory Lane. Like before, we stayed in one of the Mythical Suites, up all those stairs, with a private hot tub on a patio out back. We love the sulfur mineral water--it's hot, hot, hot!

The grounds are as lush as ever, bordered by immense sycamore trees. This bridge leads across the road to a meditation garden and labyrinth.

We had incredible food here for both dinner and breakfast. In fact it was at breakfast the next morning when we decided to extend our trip. Though we couldn't get reservations here for Memorial Day weekend, we did find a room at our favorite place in Cambria. So for the next few blog posts, the journey down Memory Lane will continue!
