A saucy good time

Hello There My Little Peaches,

Other than joining my friend for dinner this Sunday evening, I did absolutely nothing today. Because Aunt Flo has arrived and knocked me on my ass for half the day, I just opted to watch Law and Order all day in my PJs eat and nap.

But let's not talk about that. Let's talk about the fun I had yesterday in Napa. I belong to Couchsurfing.org. (where you can meet up with others in other countries or states or where they come to you and you can host) There was a meeting in San Francisco and we rode up in a limo and went wine tasting in Napa and had lunch. It was totally a good time, a great way to spend the weekend and my dear friend Heidi came along.

We went to three wineries, and I could really only taste at one because I got pretty tipsy the first time. I am a lightweight and it only took me one glass to make me feel like I couldn't walk straight. The first winery we went to was Stag's Leap in Napa, and they won a contest against a French winery three times hands down. (I made sure the French guy in our group heard that) Their Artemis collection was so velvety and smooth, and I am not even that into wine.

Did I also tell you that I also tried caviar for the first time at another winery ? That was the Domaine Carneros, and the chateau was modeled after Château de la Marquetterie in Champagne, France. I thought that I wouldn't like caviar, but it was pretty good.

Anyway, it had been a while since I was in a limo and it was so nice to sit back there, chat it up with others and get a killer view of Napa. The cherry that topped my sundae was riding in that limo through the Golden Gate bridge. What a great way to spend money. Before hitting the Golden Gate bridge, the view of the fog rolling off the hills was priceless.

The people in our group were fabulous, and besides those of us from the SF Bay Area, there were people from France, Poland, the Czech Republic, Canada and Mexico with us. The guy who organized the trip had a gorgeous flat in San Francisco with a nice view of the city and a rooftop terrace.

So yeah, great weekend, and a great bunch of people. No one got too drunk, no groping took place in the limo, but I did bring my witty banter, but what else is new......

Here is Yours Truly and I was under the influence of wine, a lot of sun and tylenol.


Time to go and watch more Law and Order,

Besitos !

The only thing worse than a Wine-snob, is a French Wine-snob.
Let me put you on my Scooter and we'll go visit the BOONE'S FARM WINERY...
