A few weeks ago we drove up to Glen Ellen to spend time with my friend and her baby. The area surrounding Glen Ellen is famous as a wine growing region and also as the home of the writer Jack London. I love journeying up there in the winter when everything is misty and grey, and I love it in the spring when the sky is vivid blue with high, bright clouds.
Whenever we visit Glen Ellen we have lunch at this Nepalese restaurant.
It's called Yeti, and it's not to be missed. Even my little Mr. B. gobbles up their mysteriously spiced curries with joy and relish!
After lunch we took a walk on trails among the rolling, golden hills and beneath mossy California oaks...
I'm not sure which was my favorite view... the rolling hills and trees or the view into the face of this little person strapped to my chest, sleeping as we hiked our way along the trail.
Then on Monday and Tuesday of this week we were up visiting our friends in Sebastapol.
Sebastapol is located is west of Glen Ellen and better known for dairy farming and Gravenstein apple orchards.
The best part of visiting (besides eating cheeses and apples from this region) is watching my little Mr. B. running free in the fields, chasing around with children and chickens.
I'm always a little bit sad when we cross back over the Golden Gate Bridge heading for home, but I know we'll be heading back soon!
