Celebrating our 23rd Wedding Anniversary - Day 2
Our original plan for Monday was a hike in the Napa area. As we were checking into the hotel on Sunday night, Sharon saw their bikes and suggested a bike ride instead.
After breakfast in the concierge lounge, we got bikes and helmets from the front desk. We rode on the Vine Trail towards Yountville. We did this ride once before when I was working in Napa.
We stopped in Yountville for coffee at Southside. Afterwards, we rode back to the Napa Valley Marriott. In total, we covered 13.6 miles in just over an hour and a half.
Checking out of the hotel, we got some sandwiches at the Safeway deli. The plan for the afternoon was wine tasting at Bouchaine Vineyards. Sharon has been a wine club member there since our first visit in 2010.
Bouchaine has built a new tasting room. We thought that it was going to be open, but it is still not being used for day to day tasting. We did get a chance to wander through the new building.
We had a nice tasting and a leisurely lunch. We rolled towards Carmichael after 2 pm. With one quick stop, we picked up Tiber about 3:45 pm.
It was a very nice get away...
