When we set out for the real vacation portion of our trip, the afternoon was just magnificent (see photo number 1). We took our newly rented auto across the Golden Gate Bridge toward Napa. Where we stayed (photo number 2) was the Napa River Inn, a fabulous B&B, where the breakfast was incredible room service. Anyway, we arrived early enough that we did some sightseeing along the Napa River, and downtown (photos 3 - 6). We ate dinner at an absolutely fabulous restaurant where the wine, the dinner and the dessert, as well as the company, were just spectacular, and we returned to our beds very contented, very full, and very happy. This was really the beginning.
