Napa jaunt cont'd 10/28 - 10/31 2012


Tuesday, 10/30/12, dawned very foggy and a little on the cool side with a brisk breeze.  According to the weather people, the fog would lift around 1 pm.  Well, we wanted to walk the streets of historic Napa, ogle those elegant older homes, circa 1885 and so on, and admire the vibrant autumn colors at the same time.  Jimmy and I both wore light jackets, and drove the short distance to Napa Visitor Center for a map.  Armed with two city maps, we set off on foot (on - hooray - flat ground!).  We covered quite a few streets and saw every kind of architecture.  We enjoyed our sightseeing tour, but we never quite warmed up.


Dusk at Napa Elks Lodge RV campground.


One entrance to Fuller Park in downtown Napa.


Such a color!


We thought this tree disfigurement looked like monster's ears!


Migliavacca Mansion - a grand old lady - built between 1890 - 1893!


After walking around town for a couple of hours, we paid a visit to the market and ate burgers at Gott's.  Felt good to sit down!  The sun began to poke thru at 1 pm, right on schedule, but we didn't actually see it till about 2.


After lunch, we drove to Whole Foods for a few goodies (but not a pumpkin)...


and Trader Joe's (next door) to see what they had to offer!  Jimmy poses comfortably!  After yesterday's taxing hike, we kinda took it easy today, especially considering the lovely nap we had when we got home!

Tomorrow:  We move to Cal-Expo RV Park in Sacramento.
