Neighborhood Sebastopol Artist Patrick Amiot dons all of the neighbor's lawns with his artwork. Super COOL!

When in Rome....I mean Sebastopol...go visit Kosta Browne (Winery is a stretch)...our wine club.

We were given a short tour

And moved on to the Crooked Goat for a beer flight and lunch
Wait...is that a smile on Mike's face?

The next day we went to St. Francis for a special wine and food pairing experience.  It was amazing and very reasonable.  I will definitely do this again.

We are ready

Thanks, Nancy and Rob!  We had a wonderful time!

First Mate Kate

Guadalupe Valley

We arrived in Guadalupe Valley just in time for lunch, so we met Robin and Katie at the Adobe Guadalupe food truck, famous for amazing cuisine.  

I swear those are the initials KH in the sky above the angel horse statue

The food truck at Adobe Guadalupe

We were actually staying at Adobe Guadalupe, but our friends were staying at La Ville del Valle, another beautiful place.  We didn't know anything about Adobe Guadalupe when we booked it, and staying there shortly after my best friend died, it was like it had chosen us.  There were angel statues everywhere and the owner raises horses.  Kathryn rode dressage and she was and is my angel.

Pyramid Winery....great wines...all red blends

We spent our last evening having dinner at La Ville de Valle.  It was a special night.
