Sonoma to Seattle

Yesterday we drove to Woodside to have lunch with an old college friend of mine. Kevin and I hadn’t seen each other in 45 years. It was great to reconnect and to get to know Barbara whom we have only known in letters. We had a great meal in Buck’s Restaurant, an interesting place filled with “stuff.” A few samples are a collection of bronzed baby shoes, several race car bodies from an environmental race, a sampler of breakfast cereals, a Tiffany style stained glass chandelier, and cowboy hat lights over the tables.

Late in the afternoon we drove into Sonoma valley to the Jacuzzi Winery. Yes, it’s the same name as the family that invented the famous hot tub. They have a delightful winery that also specializes in olive products like flavored oils, dipping sauces, and tapenades. We came away with some products to bring home to Seattle.

That brings up a delicate subject. I feel it’s only fair to warn Seattle that we are coming back this weekend. Due to the weather that has followed our travels this winter you need to be prepared for the worst! We’ve been hanging out in CA hoping to fool Mother Nature into thinking we were staying put until we make a mad dash over the mountains. I’m not certain it has worked. Seattleites, considered yourselves duly alerted to bad weather coming your way.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
