So this West Coast vacation is sort of becoming a thing with us.
See, around here, most people take off for a week in the summer & head to the beach. They rent houses & spend every daylight hour on the sand reading & relaxing. That sounds wonderful & great & I love the beach, but I know that the two of us wouldn’t last more than a few days. Tom would be totally, 100% stir crazy, we’d both be sunburned & when your main hobbies are eating & drinking, the limited number of restaurants & tribulations of trying to cook meals in a kitchen with unfamiliar pots, pans & knives would not be an ideal vacation. For us, at least.
I think that’s why we love the West Coast so much. I can’t think of a better place where great beer, wine & food all come together. & while we know there’s some other really great areas we need to explore, (hello Portland & Seattle!) Northern California’s really won our hearts…& our tastebuds.
So, when United added a nonstop flight RDU-SFO, it pretty much sealed the deal that we were going back.
We booked hotels in Santa Rosa, Napa & San Francisco…the same cities we visited on our honeymoon & spent a week revisiting some of our favorite places & discovering some great new ones.
Stay tuned, I’ll break down all the delicious details.
