Team Rif in the Wine Country
Mark and I just got back from our first ever workshop together, held in Healdsburg (CA) this past weekend, and we had a great time, (more on that later!) Gayle Hunter and Ross Allen were gracious enough to let us stay with them overnight in their beautiful home overlooking the Russian River, and treating us to some lovely wines, as well as local foods like, olive oil, beautifully baked breads, artisan cheeses, fresh tomatoes, figs, etc. (and Ross makes the best coffee BTW)
Gayle Hunter (Russian River Kettlebells) and I walking to dinner at Scopa, in downtown Healdsburg. Saturday night was perfect for dining outside. Next time we have to get some "sliders" as an appetizer at the resturant in the Healdsburg Hotel. I've never had one (mini 'White Castle' type hamburger that melts in your mouth!), but I can't wait to try....afterall that's why I diet all week, so I can eat up on the weekend, right?
If you're ever in downtown Healdsburg you have to get some gelato at Powell's candy store.....it was crazy good! (Try to avoid the candy though, lol)
