After San Fran, I headed up to Napa to stay with some of our friends. Napa is a beautiful town surrounded by other beautiful towns like Sonoma and of course the beautiful wine growing region. It's nice to get out of the big cities and experience a slower pace of life and just take in the beauty around you. I was so endeared by the street our friends live it, I could have moved in! I walked the streets early in the morning. It was crisp and quiet and only a squirrel running about, possibly stocking up for the winter to come. The homes are quaint and often dressed for Halloween - very Martha Stewart! This street was lined with poplar trees and some type of fir trees. The leaves were starting to turn, I can only imagine what Christmas would be like.











The French Laundry. The famous restaurant of chef, Thomas Keller. One of quite a few that he now owns in Yontville. Across the road from The French Laundry is their garden. It is super stunning as it looks across the nearby valley.










Some vines! Wow! Taken to show hubby. Prettiest wine growing area I've seen. Maybe some quilt related stuff tomorrow......

It looks gorgeous. Those houses are DREAMY!!! We could move into the same street. We could all have a pet squirrel or two.

Oh my god, I didn't think places like that actually existed. I thought they were only in the pages of gorgeous magazines!!! I'm so envious!!
Napa makes the Hunter Valley vineyards look like dusty paddocks!
Keep the photos coming, I'm living vicariously!!
