Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa offers a variety of such “interludes,” such as the hillside hot tubs, a quiet back patio table at the Resort’s “Garden of Avila” restaurant, a couples massage at its renowned spa, and/or an overnight stay in a one-bedroom king spa suite—with a private balcony hot tub—in the West Meadows nature preserve.

2. Moonstone Beach, Cambria

A stroll at Moonstone Beach boardwalk in Cambria.  Take a picnic, include wine or handcrafted beer, and just enjoy the rugged coastline. Or meander among the tide pools or unearth splendid moonstones on the beautiful sandy beaches. It’s usually cool and a bit windy—but definitely cozy.

 3. Edna Valley Wine Tasting

If you’re in a mood for a midday rendezvous, head out to the Edna Valley to Chamisal Vineyards or Wolff Vineyards (shown above). They both offer some out-of-the-way areas to enjoy a glass of wine—or a bottle—and indulge in an amorous afternoon of wine, conversation, and anticipation.   

Chamisal Vineyard, Open Daily, 10am-5pm, Monday-Thursday, 10am-6pm, Friday and Saturday. 866.808.9463. www.chamisalvineyards.com

Now some people wouldn’t imagine an “outdoor” activity as too romantic. But think again. Rent a kayak, stash a flask, bring a camera, and paddle over to an isolated cave or islet, and kick back and watch the harbor seals, sea otters—maybe even whales—and the glistening ocean. No question, it will be a delightful day with untold possibilities.
