For The Dot's birthday outing she chose to go to Grass Valley, which is a two hour drive from Wellington. We do a lot of day trips and after 24 years I guess Miranda was having a hard time finding someplace drivable that we hadn't been to. But Grass Valley was a great pick.
We started in the little town. We looked around the shops then walked up some of the streets. Very cute houses from the turn of the century. One was a VRBO.
It was gorgeous.
It's a beautiful setting. There was a wedding taking place while we were there. The weather was perfect.
