Napa Weekend

Pool time with the perfect, picturesque wine country view.

This past weekend we had the pleasure of spending a few days in Napa at The Carneros Inn. The weather and the resort were both so beautiful. 

The walkway leading up to our little cottage (on the left).

Spotted: pretty blooms on the side of the road.

Discovered the wonder of outdoor showers.

Poolside grub: rose sangria and prawn ceviche.

View of Reykjavik's lovely colorful roofs from the highest point in the city, HallgrĆ­mskirkja.

Overlooking the Arctic Ocean. (It was our first time seeing it!)

"Town's Best Hotdogs": some say these are the best hot dogs in the world, and I must say they were quite delicious. 

Afternoon lattes in cute cafes.

Horse tenderloin for him & three types of fish for me. 

Chandelier at GrillmarkaĆ°urinn.

Breakfast with a side of reading.

Quirky home decor shops everywhere.

Birthday dinner that included smoked puffin, sea trout, blue ling, minke whale, lamb and lobster. (Plus the best passionfruit sorbet/vanilla skyr mousse dessert!)

Over Valentine's Day weekend (which also happened to be my birthday weekend), we ended up taking a mini last minute trip to Reykjavik! We only had a few short days there, but that's all it took to fall in love with the city.
