I want to go back, back to Cali, Cali

Planning our trip for next week has me thinking about our vacation last year.  What a trip!  B and I headed out West to California and took in all that San Francisco, Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley had to offer.  We had the most incredible time!

Started the trip off with some dim sum in San Fran's Chinatown
Followed by Bloody Marys and oysters at Fisherman's Wharf.
Dinner at Oola
Incredible and inventive drinks!
Hands down the best thing I ate the whole trip...potato chip wrapped scallops (with garlic fries of course).  Yum!

First stop in Napa, Frank Family Vineyards. 
Phenomenal Zins.

Dinner at Willie's Seafood and Raw Bar in Healdsburg.  Delicious lobster rolls!
Our B&B in Healdsburg - The L&M Motel
It is the cutest, converted roadside motel that takes you back.  Campfire, croquet and...
My favorite!
Lunch at Coppola's Rustic.  Amazing!
One of the highlights of the trip - Seven course food and wine pairing at Mayo Reserve.
Highly recommend!
Dessert! Blueberry, creme fraiche and basil trifle. 

We stayed at the El Dorado Hotel in Sonoma, right on the plaza.
Perfect for walking to the Farmer's Market on the Square.

Cheers to unbelieveable trip in California!
Cannot wait to see what our NYC adventure brings...
