Washington Trip: Part 2

The next leg of our adventure was spent touring around San Francisco. This is where we experienced the only main trouble in our trip. Since our schedule was not 100% settled before hand we just took care of all hotel reservations the night we needed them. Well we ended up in SF on Saturday evening before a SF 49ers game the following morning, talk about a mess. Luckily we were able to get a hotel and headed straight to bed. The next morning we started off with breakfast at the Hollywood Cafe as recommended by Miss Football before we hit up the pier. It was awesome! We had lots to see, from boats to seals, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the fun shops scattered in between.

The Golden Gate Bridge


After we saw everything we needed to in SF, we headed for Napa Valley. We were able to schedule a tour at the Robert Mondavi vineyard. We were able to see the process of making wine from grape to bottle and we had the best tour guide. Bob was a sweet older gentleman that had been doing tours on and off for 42 years, he was a riot. 

These barrels are about $1800 and only 12 are made a day by 2 guys.
Below is the signature of the one who made that barrel.

After Napa Valley we drove up to Eureka, CA to stay the night. The next morning on our drive up the National Redwood forest we ran up on a herd of Elk at an RV park. I guess they are always there just hanging out so we stopped by to say hello. 

A little further up the road we started running into the big stinkin' trees! They were pretty awesome! Just as we were enjoying the trees, our route took us along the shoreline and it was gorgeous! Enjoy the pictures loves!

Stay tuned for the next installment!
