From July 1-4, 2018, we were looking around Sonoma County, which is in the wine country north of San Francisco.
Ellen and Rick recently bought a lot up there, in the little town of Glen Ellen. The house on the lot was destroyed in the fires of last fall. Eventually they plan to rebuild on the property.
We also visited Santa Rosa (Luther Burbank house and garden), Rohnert Park (Sonoma State University), Sebastopol (Luther Burbank Experiment Farm), Quarryhill Botanical Garden (near Glen Ellen), and Bodega Bay (fish dinner!).
We hiked at several places (including Sonoma Valley Regional Park) and ran in the Kenwood Fourth of July Footrace (3K).
