Oh the joy of having clean clothes. A big coin operated laundromat in Richmond was the highlight of Saturday. An elderly Chinese lady (she really did run it) helped get us sorted and it was therapeutic to watch the grime and our smalls going round and round. Simon wasn't sure if we would have to wait for one to come free but there were plenty and it was clean. We had booked a room at a place in Vallejo so we wouldn't have to go far. Not sure why this place exists there can't be that many people doing laundry. Can't think of any other reason to stay in Vallejo.
Sunday and on to Sonoma and Napa wine country. Very pretty in old Sonoma. Visited the cheese factory. Being Mom's day here there were a lot of people around, at the park, in restaurants etc.
Visited 3 wineries Artesan, Domaine Carneros and Bouchaine. Wine tasting costs between $16 and $35 plus tax per person. Since Simon was driving we figured just visit the wineries and buy a bottle we can both enjoy. So dinner was a lovely bottle of Pinot noir, cheese from Sonoma valley and fresh Napa valley bread mmmmmmmm.
Staying at our first no breaky included so we've pulled out the weetbix.
It's lovely to slow the pace country style and no more early shift starts.
Happy birthday Aunty Fi for 13th xx
