Napa Vineyards in the Fall.
We had the pleasure of visiting Napa, California in the fall. Before this trip, I don’t think I realized that California even had a fall. But these grapevines were gorgeous in shades of honeyed yellow.
One of the things I loved about California in general was all the plants. My step son has lemon trees in his backyard! I am so jealous. I love this little lemon tree in a barrel out on the side walk!
A few more photos from Napa, California. I loved these winery signs!
On August 24, 2014 at 6.0 earthquake occurred near Napa, California. We watched it on the news and saw the destruction. We weren’t sure what to expect when we visited Napa in November. What we saw were several buildings under repair. Some businesses still closed. Some buildings appeared to have not sustained any damage at all.
As we made our way from Sausalito California to our next major stop, we were told by everyone, including our guide book that we must stop at Muir Woods. What no one told us was on that particular Saturday there was some sort of race going on. We drove and drove looking for a parking place until we realized that we would literally have to walk miles just to get from our car to the actual woods! It was insane. We had driven quite a bit out of our way just to see Muir Woods and now had to work our way back to our quickest route. As we were driving along, we saw a sign for Muir Beach Overlook – so we pulled over so that we could at least say we saw something in Muir Beach, California!
