4th July Weekend

We’re back!  It was a great holiday, we managed to pack a lot into 5 days.  The first two were spent exploring San Francisco (‘The City’ or ‘Frisco’ depending on where you come from).  We walked around Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Lombard Street, Chinatown and Golden Gate Bridge.  We learnt that San Fransciso is an extremely hilly city and not best tackled in flip flops, that it isn’t always cloudy so sunscreen is a good idea, that the buses get very busy over the 4th and city-livers think it’s funny to pretend they are going to give you a lift and then drive away, and that it’s very easy to spend all of your first pay check on absolutely nothing in a big city.

Interns are easily amused...

On 4th July we took the ferry across the bay to get to Sonoma.  Spencer lives in this area so we piled into his house and were absolutely spoiled by his parents – thanks again Ron and Susan!!  We went to see the fireworks, went for a wine tasting at Chateau St. Jean, visited cheese factories, made s’mores and spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool.

    It was fun hosting all of you for the 4th of July. I am glad you had a chance to enjoy the wine country and we look forward to hearing of your further adventures. You are always welcome here in Sonoma. However, I think we reached our occupancy limit.
    Our best to all of you,
    Ron and Susan
