We spent several days in Sonoma County with the charming town of Sonoma at its heart. Sonoma is the northernmost point of the Mission Trail 1523 - 1823. The trail went as far south as Guatemala and covered what is now 11 states.

After a few relaxing days in Sebastopol, a little sun and getting caught up on laundry and correspondence, we headed back to Napa to visit Fayemarie and Jules. They were on the World Cruise with us from San Francisco to Beijing.
|Wine tasting at Stag's Leap|
Their home is high on a hill with an expansive view of Napa Valley. We had a wonderful time dining and wining with Jules, Fayemarie and her sons, Ian and Devin. The highlight was a private wine tasting at Stag’s Leap. The winery is one of California's oldest and has 90 acres of vineyards. One could become intoxicated on the setting itself. The wine is good too!
