We are enjoying the heat of the California summer. We even went swimming this afternoon; and for Esther to go swimming, you know it has to be warm. Ninety degrees plus, but it cools down very nice in the enening. We drove through the Napa Valley today and crossed over to the Sonoma Valley this afternoon. We had no idea that the two valleys were so competitive. Even though we drove past hundreds of wineries today, we haven't taken a tour yet. We found a nice inn in Sonoma and are pampering ourselves for sleeping in the van earlier.
