Between 1995 and 2002, Sharon and I made five different trips to Sea Ranch (July 1995, January 1998, November 1998, July 1999 and August 2002). For a number of reasons, we have not been back here together in more than eight years. In the ensuing years, Sharon has been to Sea Ranch a couple of times with Janie and others. With our birthdays both falling around the three day weekend, we decided to rent a house and spend the long weekend on the coast.
We took off about 1:30 p.m. and made a short stop at Bouchaine for a tasting and to pick up a case of wine. Sharon is a wine club member at this winery. Winding our way down the Russian River and up the coast, it was 5:30 p.m. by the time we got to the Sea Ranch Lodge to pick up the keys to the house.
Sharon found a spectacular house for the weekend. It was dark by the time we got to the house so we will have to wait until tomorrow to get to enjoy the views.
Sharon made a lasagna during the week and cooked it for dinner. After a late dinner, we ended the night with a game of scrabble in the living room in front of a roaring fire. Jack squeaked out a victory over both Sharon and me!
