Your fingers are intertwined as the wind brushes across the golden bluff. Breathing deeply, you take it all in. Jasmine, honeysuckle and the remnants of your long awaited outing alfresco - donut peaches & freshly whipped vanilla cream, sweet white corn, buttered and salted sourdough, orange pith. Not wanting it to end you share the last goat’s milk caramel and with it you sense the salinity of the waves crashing on the rocks below. The flavor lingers as you close your eyes, willing the moment not to end.
