The extra-fortunate part of the whole thing was that the part of California where his company's headquarters
reside is just a wee bit south of the town where my best friend from high school lives! It was a win-win situation, so I begged him to make it happen. Lucky for me, he loves me like he does. Cuz the next thing I knew, I was on a plane to San Francisco!
At the fourth winery we visited (HopKiln), the wine steward happened to be the person who wrote the computer program in the 80's in Silicon Valley that my husband's company runs today. For the man's company. At Winery #5 (Twomey - we drove by it four times in what could've been horrible construction traffic, yet each time we got right through - and just before the winery closed!!!), the wine steward was a native of Hawaii who gave us intimate advice on where to go - even where to buy frozen peas to feed the tropical fish in the bay - when we go on Pookie's Make A Wish trip. We learned a ton about wine ~ and maybe we drank a ton of wine ~ but it was exceptional! We loved the whole day!
On the banks of Bodega Bay
Totally worth it to take a Segway Tour ~ We had a blast! ~ in front of Alcatraz.So there you have it. Memories to last a lifetime ~ I can't wait to put together a photo album of all 600 pictures I took. Golly it's a good thing I have a tripod, a camera with a timer, and a man who is willing to listen to my crazy ideas and take me on a trip ~ just the two of us, together!
