Take a Little Tour of Our New Home Town

                                                                   Vail Lake
Our own little airport, they serve breakfast!
        Lunch anyone?
        Lovely vineyards under the sun
     Hot Air Balloons over Skinner Lake
                   We have to try this!
      These guys sell  terrific garlic-stuffed olives


Thought I'd share a little information about our new home town today.

Temecula circa 1909! It sure doesn't look like this now! Don't you love historical pictures? The olive bar is in OLD TOWN, and well worth a visit. I've included a picture of Vail Lake, (which I have to admit I have not visited yet but I hear it's a great place to camp), and a vineyard or two, (just a couple miles away. I know, lucky us!), and those hot air balloons are flying over Lake Skinner which is just a hop skip and a jump away. French Valley Airport is a good place to take flying lessons, (my husband is signing up!), or to take a glider ride. So, if you visit Southern California, don't forget our wine country! Did I say, we love living here, well so far we do!

This looks like a wonderful place! I've only been do San Diego CA driving from Tucson AZ but that is definitely one state I would love to vacation in.

We lived about an hour away in apple country in the foothills of the San Bernardino mtns. Nice country too! And where are you?

Liz...the wineries there are just as good as Napa. Be sure to check out Stewart Winery's Viognier.

This looks lovely. I'd like to go wine tasting, especially as I near Temecula. Where did you move from?
Sounds like your husband will have fun learning how to fly. Are you too?

Wow. Gorgeous. Stunningly gorgeous.

The name reminds me of the name of the small town I'm from, Tehkumah. I wonder if it's a native american name? And suddenly I'm shamed 'cause I don't know what Tehkumah means.
