"I took my 10-year-old son to stay on a real working farm, the Hanericka Farmstay, in Australia. We felt like part of the family. They cooked us fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went horseback riding, fed the animals, milked goats, rode motorbikes. They have more than 6,000 acres of beautiful countryside. We also had a bonfire with billy tea and damper. A unique Australian experience." Double rooms from $197. Hanericka Farmstay, McRorie's Road, Yerong Creek, N.S.W.

In 1995, Anne Bunch wrote a little book called "Cooking With Garlic." At that time, Bunch, who lives in the Santa Ynez Valley, was cooking at a restaurant in Los Olivos called the Side Street Cafe. Customers flocked there for her versatile and imaginative dishes and raved about her desserts, including a luscious coconut cake filled with pastry cream and mascarpone cheese, frosted with whipped cream and coated with coconut.

Before Santa Barbara County officials seized 167 horses from a Santa Ynez Valley ranch in September, they first had to decide what to do with them. They knew they could capture and transport them, but then what? Who would care for them? "The county is in no way equipped to handle" the horses, said Laura Cleaves, a senior criminal investigator for the Santa Barbara County district attorney, who led the investigation.

In my book, summer is all about being outdoors. So when friends raved about the kid-friendly productions at Theaterfest, the outdoor summer repertory theater of the Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts in Solvang, it sounded ideal. But Solvang? The Danish-themed place in the Santa Ynez Valley? The city, founded in 1911 by Danish educators building a folk school, started out nobly enough.

I had just finished the first bite of a smoky barbecue tri-tip on crusty sourdough and taken a sip of a Rhone red when a flash of blue caught my eye, and I saw a bird land on a nearby oak tree. "Look!" I said to my husband. "The bluebird of happiness." Given our contentment at that moment, the bird seemed an apt symbol, even though I knew it wasn't really a bluebird but a blue jay. This wasn't about ornithology, though; it was about pleasure--and about a challenge we had set for ourselves.

There was no sign of human habitation, not even a tower or a telephone wire--just an endless series of folded hills, with mountains beyond and green, green grass below. Only the caw of a crow and the purr of our electric cart broke the silence. This place fit golfers to a tee: a new course called Rancho San Marcos, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and one of Golf Magazine's "top 10 you can play."
