If one of your goals for the new year is to take good care of yourself, you may want to take advantage of the offer from Rancho La Puerta.

This award winner, a favorite of ours near San Diego, is offering great savings, www.rancholapuerta.com.

If you book during 1/1 -8 the savings are 25 percent plus three spa treatments. Maralyn and I hiked, swam, picked produce from the garden, took culinary lessons, enjoyed classes and wine tasting. The spa treatments were a luxurios treat for all the senses. If we were not off to France, The  Ranch would be top choice for a transforming new year.
