Up early, we loaded up the car. With all of the stuff that we are taking for the wedding, I bought some racks for the Volvo last Sunday and put on the Yakima box.
We rolled about 8:40 am. The plan for lunch was a wine and food pairing at the Goldeneye Winery in the Anderson Valley. With Jack's 21st birthday last month, this is the first time that we have taken him wine tasting.
We first stopped in the Anderson Valley with the Sanborns in January. Although it is off the beaten path, there are definitely some other stops that we would love to make in this area.
With a quick stop in Fort Bragg for some flowers, we rolled into Westport at 3:30 pm. We are spending three nights at a VRBO called Heart Song right on the ocean. I rented it right after Drew and Shannon decided on a venue.
We unpacked the car and got settled into the house. Sharon and I were both extremely pleased with the house. Set back about 75 feet over the cliffs, it has a wonderful view of the ocean.
After relaxing and enjoying the property, we headed over to Switzer Farm. This is the venue for the wedding. It is a restored 1884 Victorian farmhouse that sits atop 22 private oceanfront acres. We had a chance to visit with Drew and Shannon and the rest of the wedding party.
Eventually, we wandered back to the house and barbecued steaks for dinner. Jack and I finished the night watching Tampa Bay beat Carolina on Thursday Night Football.
