As we are member of the Fellowship of the Frog, we felt an obligation to stop in at the winery. Well, that and they give all their members free wine tastings. It is always wonderful to visit this tasting room and the grounds surrounding it. Parked at Frog’s Leap Drinking amoung the vines The, Read More

Whenever we stay in Calistoga, we make sure it is over a Saturday so that we can go to this farmers market. Luckily for us, it is usually the spring time and that means lots of bright green veggies. Darren picked us up some favas, and some merguez sausages form Gypsy Girl. He also, Read More

Now we have to check to see if we are “still” on the same days that our current town holds their market. So, when we learned, Read More

We knew we couldn’t stay in Cooperstown and not visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. Neither Darren nor I have ever been there so we thought it would be a fun side trip. We didn’t have a lot of time, but we rode the trolley from our parking spot just outside of town (No, Read More
