Down in the Valley

This weekend the coolness of early spring departed and the temperature moved into the 30 Celsius range. We drove up into Napa Valley, eating lunch in Yountville and then heading up to Saint Helena. Napa Valley would be attractive if it was an untouched wilderness, but with the mix of architecture, the great dining, and agriculture that creates such splendid product, the valley is truly wonderful.

On the way home, we stopped in the city of Napa itself and had Anette’s home made ice-cream. It is worth driving the twenty minutes to Napa just to indulge in this heavenly dessert; the peach and the mint truffle are especially recommended.

It is great when an ordinary Saturday feels like a vacation.
