A Rainy Day in Harmony

Harmony, CA – Population 18 One of the most charming wide spots in the road is Harmony, California. This tiny town, founded in 1869 around dairy farms and a creamery, now features a couple of art galleries and even a winery! On my most recent visit the weather was dreary and wet… but that didn’t…
