Going Back for More

Since we felt like we had just skimmed the surface of the charming Anderson Valley, we decided to go back for a little more wine tasting on our last day there, then take Highway 128 all the way west to the coast.  After our sumptuous breakfast at Auberge on the Vineyard of creme brulee french toast and blackberry galette with fresh whipped cream, we loosened up our waist bands, packed up our stuff, said our “good-byes” to Roxanne and headed out to the Valley, back to our new, favorite little town of Boonville. 

Past the cheerful daffodils sprouting up along the roadside

Back to the Mosswood Market Cafe, where coffee, tea and yummies are served along with local art.


And, Paysanne, the gas station turned ice cream shop, with its eye-catching colors.



And, Farmhouse Mercantile, the gorgeous household goods store, where milk paint and other unique items are aplenty.

 Past the old orchards that hint at the valley’s agricultural past



We admired the valley from the comfort of Roderer’s tasting room.

And then a stop at quaint Sharffenberger Cellars where we heard stories about living in the Valley.


 Before the gorgeous drive through the redwood forests along Highway 128


Which lead us to Highway 1 and the natural beauty of the Northern California Coast


 Where lucky cows graze along the roadside


And as the sun set, we enjoyed a lovely meal at River’s End Restaurant, where the Russian River meets the sea before heading home.
