Daniel and Rebecca Part III, going north
My brother, John, enjoys segway tours. John, you could tour San Fran that way!
One of Rodin's Thinkers.
Carl loves the clam chowder and the Cioppino.
I got Risotto with Prawns. It was wonderful!
Here's is what Carl's Cioppion looked like.
I don't know what I expected California to look like but I was delighted and surprised with every turn. Everywhere we turned in Napa there were rows and rows of grapes. We saw new sprigs, teenagers and full grown adult plants. I learned at the wine tasting that we did, that Napa is a unique valley. Because of it's location it gets cool every night- 40's or 50's, and the day time temps can get warm. They have a few 100 temp days, a few more 90 degree days, many 80 and 70 degree days. We also saw large fans in the fields. Those are to blow away the frosty mist that would settle on the grapes and damage them.
The final picture is from our motel room. We had a beautiful view.
Whenever we are out and folks are taking pictures I always try to offer to take pictures of groups who need someone to take a picture so the whole group can be in the picture. Most folks let me but were stunned that I offered. When we were in Napa, I offered and the lady with the camera asked if I was from the south. I told her yes I was! She said that she wasn't surprised because that seemed like good southern hospitality. Way to go Southerners!
