We are very grateful to be living in a most beautiful area of Northern California where the natural beauty of the area is available to be explored in our many Parks, Recreation areas, the San Francisco Bay, the Pacific Ocean, the Lakes and Rivers of Sonoma County and beyond.
We like to hike, we love to eat! from Food trucks to Diners to World class restaurants, eating out is such a pleasure in this area with so many fresh food, farm to table choices.
Also, if you are a junior chef, Farmer's markets are fantastic here year round.
Traveling is what we do best! Latin America and Mexico are our favorites although, our very favorite yearly trip is camping in a simple campsite, no showers, no shops, no cell phone service, just a lake within 3 1/2 hours drive...perfect.
There is a wonderful music scene here and live music venues are plentiful.
