After our three day stay in the city (for me a good vacation spot includes public transportation, coffee shops on every corner and buildings everywhere you look interspersed with parks… I blame it on the fact that I live in the boonies now), we headed north to the Muir Woods and then on to Wine Country. The Muir Woods was amazing, we did a little hiking and some sight seeing, but I definitely wish we could have spent some time in Sausilito and Strawberry and the other smaller towns around the woods. But that will just have to be for another trip.
One can only handle so many pictures of trees, so I’ll only share a few.
some of these trees looked so thin and fragile, yet have been standing tall for YEARS!
this one looks like a giraff to me…. do you see it?
this makes me want one of these as a playhouse in the backyard
That night we checked into a hotel and headed to Napa Valley the next day to visit two recommended wineries. While my mom and I like an occasional glass of wine, we aren’t big drinkers, so we kept it pretty low key.
the Rhine House at Beringer Wineries
domain carneros… famous for their sparkling wines (we tasted 7 different wines!)
looking out over the napa and sonoma valleys
my family is big on seeing the not so touristy spots, so I found some backroads on the map and we found where a lot of the wineries had their vineyards. it was gorgeous back there and there were some amazing houses along the way!
That wraps up days four and five of our California adventure. Later this week, I’ll be sharing LOTS and LOTS of photos from South Lake Tahoe- it was gorgeous and the pictures definitely don’t do it justice! Hope you all had a wonderful and safe Halloween and Happy First Day of November (aka what really marks the beginning of fall for me)!
