As we roll into the lazy days of summer, the daisies are still in bloom and mornings are quiet and softly sunny. The air carries the smell of the ocean as it rolls in from the west over the coastal range. It keeps the valley fresh. We had our first al fresco breakfast for a wedding couple and their family last weekend. It was the morning after the wedding and the couple enjoyed a stay in "Heaven". Breakfast started with homemade meusli and biscotti followed by pain perdu (oven-baked french toast) and Carlton Farms bacon.
