Mother Daughter Trip Decision
At least I think it is a decision. We kicked around many, many destinations, and only one met all of our needs–plus one ‘want’ which is and always will be ‘wine’. We’ve settled on a classic driving-on-windingly-scenic-roads-in-a-convertible tour of the Napa Valley. It makes sense–we both love wine, we both love being less in a city and more in the country, and Italy is out. So Napa wins…for now, anyway.
We figure we can fly into San Francisco, stay for a night and a day to see the city (exactly long enough to become annoyed with it), and then drive North for a few days. The mom wants to do the wine train, which sounds like fun (though is a bit expensive) and likely we’ll do an additional day touring wineries. Then, depending upon distance and where we’re staying, we’d like to do some light hiking, ideally near some very tall trees. I’ve not done much research yet, but it seems like this might just be possible. And if it is–I think we’ve found our winning location! Stay tuned for excited ‘yay we booked it!’ posts.
And speaking of staying tuned, we’re leaving for the Orlando NCTE convention in just over two weeks. Am I excited? You bet your mouse ears I am! And you, dear reader, should be excited, too. I’m sure at least one part of the trip will be a horrible wreck, and you get to read about it! That or I’ll love it there, and become my greatest fear–an adult who wears Disney character clothing. I shudder at the thought…
