My First Trip To Napa
Last weekend ex-Neighbor C came out to visit me in Sacramento. Her one request was that we visit Napa.
Napa is only 70 minutes from Sacramento according to Google maps.
Even though it was the middle of winter, the scenery was still beautiful. C kept taking pictures out the window.
Our first stop was the town of Napa. The visitor center gave us some great ideas and helped us book a hotel for the night.
Downtown Napa was very cute.
The Napa Valley seemed to have a woodland theme going on.
Whats the deal with the squirrels, Napa?
Are squirrels the new owls?
But I digress.
We visited Silver Oak first. C refused to take a picture with the wheelbarrow statue. She’s such a spoilsport.
For lunch I requested that we check out Bouchon Bakery.
The next day we headed up to Calistoga.
After a day of wine on Friday we decided that Calistoga Saturday would be more of a spa day. We were both intrigued by the mud baths. And they were lots of fun as soon as I had the attendant pour a tub of ice into my bath to cool it down. I just can’t take the heat!
We had probably the best pizza I’ve had in California so far at Bosko’s. Then we spent the remainder of the afternoon shopping and meandering our way back to Sacramento.
It was an awesome introduction to Napa. Neighbor C is already planning her return trip!
