Travel Stamp

Headin’ to California

On Friday, we head for San Francisco and our first real vacation in months (six, to be exact). We’ll be there for 10 days and will be spending most of that time in Menlo Park and SF proper, but towards the back half of the trip we’ll be heading up to Gualala (to visit Irene’s cousins) by way of Napa and Sonoma.

We have a few favorite wineries that I’m sure we’ll hit, and probably check out a few new ones as well. I’d love to hit the Broman Cellars winery (no relation), but as far as I can tell, they don’t take visitors.

Our very favorite, Valley Of The Moon, will be a definite stop, but due to the new draconian FAA regulations and my aversion to checking bags, we won’t be buying any bottles. We still have a few in our stock because I hoard this stuff like gold, dolling out on special occasions only. It’s not so easy to find in Seattle. The QFC in the Broadway Market carries one varietal, but that’s about it.

We’re planning on staying overnight somewhere in Wine Country, probably in Calistoga so we can indulge in a mud bath.

Anyway, I’ll probably be posting some cam phone pictures from the road, and maybe a post or two. And I will definitely have photos to put up when we get back.

And then it’s just over a month until we head to France.
