We finally finally arrive at our destination--The Inn at Newport Ranch. We drive down a long driveway toward the edge of the sea. It's more like arriving at someone's beautiful home rather than a hotel or resort. We straggle out of the car, and are met by Cindi, the innkeeper.
The Inn, which just opened in the Fall 2015, has 1.5 miles of coastline, 2,000 acres, plus 20 miles of trails. It turns out that we are two of only six guests, and we're the only two having dinner at the Inn. We are so bedraggled that we are in no condition to get back on the road tomorrow. We ask if we could possibly stay for two nights. We can. Lucky us.
