We have no exotic plans for the Summer. At first, I was feeling a bit blue when our team members spoke of their far-off destinations (Portugal, Australia, Canada), but life has been exhausting and travel, while wonderful, can wear you down too.
I was delighted to hop in my car last week and take the drive North for a weekend in St. Helena. It may be a cliché, but driving through miles of vineyards truly does lower your blood pressure. Once there we had no need to get in the car again. We could walk right and wander through miles of tree-lined trails or left and hit arguably the best street in the whole Napa Valley. Both directions satiated the travel bug and the desire to putter and enjoy. Some of the highlights….
