We spent a whole week, exploring San Francisco and the wine country. Fort Point (it's so much more than just a bridge):
Hang gliders, and sunsets.
Then it was up the Pacific Coast Highway, we went as far as Bodego Bay (remember Hitchcock's "The Birds"?) then headed inland to Sonoma.
We stayed on an actual vineyard, in a converted water tower.
It was perfect. It was in the middle of harvest, the mornings were foggy and cool, the afternoons full of hazy sunshine.
We toured vineyards:
and wine caves (the Del Gotto caves were the very best part of the whole trip!)
It is a beautiful area, full of friendly people, gorgeous vistas, and good food. I can't wait to go back!
Happy Anniversary Mike. When I was a little girl growing up in Bemidji, I never dreamed that my life could hold so much. Thanks for making my life such a grand adventure!
