    Twosomes make for the Tomales Bay getaway for holiday sweetness.

    WATER AND AMOUR: You don't have to delve too deeply into the nature of lovey-dovey duos to discover that H2O plays a role in romance. From the anniversary gifts — a crystal goblet, perfect for water, is a traditional third anniversary gift — to waterside honeymoons, the waves and wooing go together well. As they will over Valentine's Month, in a place that is rather strong in the aquatic cred department: Marshall.

You and your honeybun'll stay in a Waterview Cottage, and you'll enjoy in-room massages a deux (an hour long, so nice), a bottle of cabernet (Nick's is on the label), an "amuse bouche" supper, breakfast the next morning, and, to kick it all off, BBQ oysters when you first set your bags down upon arrival. Oysters and Nick's, like romance and water, are also a tight twosome, so this should not surprise. But it should delight, and enchant, and if you're ready for a February steal-a-way, on a Sunday (or Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday), flap this way, lovebirds.
