My ex-neighbor and best friend was visiting San Francisco, so what better than to stay at The Craftsman Inn, known for its authentic scones? The room was cosy but spacious, with sherry on the table. Breakfast copious, with an opportunity to meet other guests around the table. The sitting room was welcoming and cosy, and the owners too! I purchased the cook book inspired by glorious northern California's ingredients, and the book is now residing in the UK.

... regió de Califòrnia. La vista des de casa seva, a dalt de tot d'un puig, són espectaculars. El poblet més a prop de Heller Vineyard és Calistoga, amb botigues de vi, restaurants, galeries d'art, tot molt coquetó. Com que aquest cap de setmana és Labour Day (el dilluns) hi ha molta gent. Temperatura 28ºC. A la tarda, fins i tot, hem pogut embotellar Pinot ...

Christian and Drew went to see a Cubs game in Oakland while Michael, ...
... and gardens immaculate. I am sure this is a very expensive area to live in.
Our final winery of the day was at Gloria Ferrer. To be honest, this was my least favourite, only because there was no actually tasting, you just had to buy a glass of what ever. I chose a glass of Royal Cuvee champagne. What made up for this was the incredible view you got from the patio area. It was up slightly on the hill and you overlooked the whole region. ...
... later at our next stop. To get to gualala we drive over the mtn. We had a magnificent view of lake Sonoma but we wound down on a narrow road with two hrs of twists and turns. I think they could cut down a few more redwoods to make the road wider and a little more navigable. As you can see a claustrophobia that the forests bring is moving in, but still the redwoods to do. With that drive we dropped height and 25 degrees ...
... were pretty tasty.
Across the road there was a deli kind of place which sold handmade chocolates for $70 a pound (wow) so we bought $3 chocolates: a peppermint, a mint one and a champagne one. They were all decorated really pretty and the peppermint was by far the tastiest and was really rich and super green inside. DELICIOUS.
We went back to the motel and packed our bags in readiness to drive back to San Francisco the next day and then enjoyed our sleep on a real bed ...
