Another rainy day so we decided to stay here in Healdsburg and get a few errands done. Laundry and windshield wipers and a bit of shopping. This afternoon it cleared up and we headed out to do a bit more exploring of wineries. We enjoy sipping $30 Chardonnays and Zinfandels... although we can't afford to actually buy many bottles at that price. We discovered yet another beautiful valley filled with small family vineyards among gnarled oak trees and winding roads and picturesque barns. I'd show you some photos except that I left the battery for my camera back at the motel room charging. Of course this would happen on the day when everything was newly washed with rain and the late afternoon sun shining through dark skies. A photographer's dream. So the only pictures I have are the ones in my head.
