On the trip from Yosemite to Napa, I spotted this little guy riding shotgun in a Mack truck.
The first winery we visited was Inglenook Winery, owned by Francis Ford Coppola. The winery has gorgeous grounds.
The vines on the outside of the building are my favorite part.
The Embassy Suites in Napa has a beautiful courtyard with many things to photograph.
Next we visited Robert Mondavi Winery. Its grounds were also very picturesque, but in a different way from Inglenook. Our tour guide Arlyss was excellent.
Francis Ford Coppola Winery up in Sonoma Valley was the last winery we visited. Really more of a gift shop/movie memorabilia showcase/restaurant/pool than a winery, this was my least favorite. If you're a big fan of Coppola's movies, you'll get a kick out of the memorabilia on display, but if you're looking for a more traditional winery, this isn't it.
Although not in Napa Valley, we ventured out to Point Reyes on a windy evening. The cypress grove was on my bucket list.
A long walk to see the lighthouse was a bit underwhelming. I'm sure if I had been dressed more appropriately for the weather and the wind wasn't howling and my ears weren't aching I would have appreciated it more. Looking at the photo now in the comfort of my home I appreciate it infinitely more.
The drive back to Napa was gorgeous at dusk. Good-bye California! Until next time!
