Day 3 - San Francisco

Me at the Seed Bank!
On Monday we took a road trip!  One of the things that I really wanted to do on our visit was to see the Baker Seed Bank in Petaluma, California.  I've become a believer in using heirloom seeds whenever possible, so this year I ordered several things from this company.  Since this little town was only about 35 miles from JR and Ashley, I'm glad we were able to go.

We traveled across the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge, and north of San Francisco to this quaint little town. They have a really nice walking area downtown with plenty of great shops. After buying several unusual and different seeds for this year's fall garden, we walked through several of the shops, including some antique shops. We had lunch at an outdoor table at McNeely's which is adjacent to the local theater/auditorium/music venue.
We drove through some little communities along the California coast, stopping at Valley Ford, then Bodega Bay.  What a gorgeous area! And the weather was fantastic.  Warm enough to go without a jacket, unless there was a wind.  We traveled on to Stinson Beach and Port Reyes.  Along that route there were several oyster shops that were having special Memorial Day oyster roasts that were packed! 
What a fun day!  I do have to say, California is gorgeous.
