If you follow the Visit Santa Cruz County page, you’ve probably heard about Chaminade Resort and Spa and its stunning hilltop setting. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have stayed, spa-dayed, dined, or attended a special event, you know firsthand about the unforgettable Monterey Bay and mountain views. I’m definitely no stranger to the resort as it’s one of my favorite spots for meetings, sunset cocktails, and special occasion dinners, but I have to admit, before my most recent visit, I had never brought my pup along for the experience!

And Danny, your early morning surf session seemed well worth the sacrifice with this view!
