Wine Tasting, Family, Small Northern California Towns, and Fog in San Francisco

Given that it’s 11:35 p.m. and I have to be up early to drive to Nevada via the scenic route, I will be making this short and sweet. 🙂

Spent the afternoon wine tasting with my cousins yesterday afternoon, and REALLY enjoyed myself.  There were several wines that I wanted to bring home with me, but my favorite of the day was the Provence from Peju!  So I brought two bottles back to the house with me.  One is gone and one is chilling for the trip to Nevada.  If there is nothing more worthy of a good glass of wine, it’s an evening with the ex, his wife, and his parents.  These family affairs are always fun, but I’m taking this one to new heights, by working through it. 🙂

Today I visited Sonoma, Petaluma, and San Francisco.  I am REALLY beyond perturbed that my beloved Golden Gate was fogged in.  I can’t count the number of times I crossed that bridge when I was younger and it was clear as a bell, but I wasn’t shooting at the time, so what good can that be, right?  I also was fortunate enough to have lunch at the Wharf with two of my best friends EVER!  (These are my selected family!)  Allison, Jeff, and I roamed the Wharf after we ate at Alioto’s (OMG, are the steamed mussells in garlic sauce ever delicious!!!), shooting pictures, catching up, and generally having a WONDERFUL time. 🙂

I REALLY wanted to share some images, but for whatever reason, I’m unable to get them off the card here at Dad’s.  Can’t wait to share them with you at a later date!  I hate that I couldn’t get the laptop to come along, but I could barely zip my suitcase as it was.  🙂

Until Next Time….
