Dreaming about my weekend

Our house is almost in order. I needed a break from unpacking.

We watched the sunset at Fort Funston. I love having the beach in our backyard.
My Weekend
My Friday included a brunch burger and bottomless mimosas at the Parkside Tavern. I discovered that a fried egg over a medium-rare chipotle beef patty is a yummy good thing.

I also added some shots from our quick getaway to wine country in Napa.

Counting down to our next adventure in Spain. I need to produce two more news shows.

Then my vacation begins! Woot!

Travel theme: Foliage

Another sign of Autumn – fat, juicy grapes hanging on the vines.

I snapped these shots by St. Supery in Napa. We watched winery workers crush Chardonnay grapes as part of its harvest season.
Soon, these lush green leaves will change to gold. That’s when California’s wine country will bundle up for cold weather, sharp breezes and the beginning of Winter.

I thought this would work for this week’s Travel theme: Foliage.

Winter Wine Tasting

This is a typical sight in California’s wine regions: palm trees standing next to vineyards.

Palm Trees in Napa

These are vines at Peju, off Saint Helena Highway. It’s one of my favorite wineries in Napa. Hopefully this last round of wet weather will help local wineries avoid a dry season.
