Had a great time with the White family who came to stay with use for a few days last week. I’ve known Briana for…20 years?? Loved the 2 days off as well, was as being a total tourist in my own town. We were busy, saw SF, Sonoma and Marin! We decided we need to be like the Whites and get in the car and do drives to national parks. Rodney documents their trips on Whynotjustgo. Give us a few years, first.
Thursday: San Francisco
We ventured into SF for our big Alcatraz tour, then ended up with lots of stops along the way. Philz Coffee in the morning, lunch with Briana’s cousin, Ghiradelli square for ice cream, Lombard Street and the Painted Ladies.
Alcatraz was great and I was pleasantly surprised by the audio tour. Highly recommend that.
Friday: Benzinger Vineyard in Sonoma
This was a find. It’s a biodynamic vineyard, was really quite, had a great little tour on a tractor and beautiful views.
We all went out for dinner to Gott’s and then frozen yogurt. There were actually 2 stops for ice cream because 2 of the girls wanted the place with the candy and gummy worm toppings.
Saturday: Marin and Sausalito
This was the day we all ventured out. After a stop at Philz for coffee and pastries to bring back home. Mandatory stop at In n Out (this was the 3rd burger for someone on the trip – and no, not me!), then to Sausalito for ice cream, and a stop in the Marin Headlands were we parted ways. Lesson learned, when S wants the sprinkle cone, she is really not going to want to share yours.
