We discovered a new place to taste, and buy, wine, in one of my favorite beach communities…other than Carlsbad, of course. Wine Steals is located at 1953 San Elijo Avenue just a few blocks north of Cardiff’s downtown and offers a pleasant, convivial atmosphere for wine tasting, along with a grea...
Folks who know me know that I have quite a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate. Elizabethan Desserts, in Encinitas, helps to fulfill the need for sweets in many ways. Oh so many ways! I have been acquainted with pastry chef Elizabeth Harris for several years now since she opened her fabulous E...

Having relationships with a variety of people will h...

But I think others agree. And it's right next to Carlsbad. The Andrews Gallery opened, with quite a...

Carlsbad is blessed with three lagoons - the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, the middle one, is the busiest. Located between Tamarack and Cannon, this lagoon offers surprises many don't know about.
