MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: NAPA VALLEY, CA

NAPA VALLEY VINEYARD

I have long enjoyed wine tasting in all of the various California areas but I always come back to my first and favorite, the Napa Valley.  After nearly yearly trips for about 20 years, I finally went solo.  I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it was a fabulous experience!  People were even more gregarious and welcoming when they realized I was on my own.  This is a photo of the vineyards at Chimney Rock Winery in the Stag’s Leap area of Napa Valley.

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: HOT AIR BALLOON

HOT AIR BALLOON

I had always wanted to ascend in a hot air balloon and, a few years ago, had the opportunity.  (I was in the one casting the shadow on the right hand side of photo.)  After a day’s delay because of high winds, the journey proved well worth the 4 a.m. check-in!  This is the Pleasant Valley in northern California, just east of Napa Valley.
