Weekend out and about around the Bay

March 25, 2013 at 8:14 am 3 comments

Saturday started at The Depot, Mill Valley for breakfast and then a big hike up 676 steps on the Dipsea and Sun Trail to the German Tourist Club; a bizarre Bavarian watering hole in the forest. We well deserved the jug of cold beer! Dinner was at the amazing Murray Circle at Cavallo Point nestling under the Golden Gate Bridge. Food and ambience 10/10. We drank by the firepit outside and dined on the terrace with rugs thoughtfully provided.

Sunday saw a leisurely drive to Sonoma; the locals favoured wine area over neighbouring Napa. The Ram’s Gate Winery is only 18m old and very scenic and welcoming. 3 tastings for $10 seemed well worth it for the quality of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and my particular favourite Syrah with fabulous lake, chairs and vineyard views. Idyllic. Then on to Fremont Diner which is very popular, reasonably priced and superb American fodder. We wandered around the quaint shops of Sonoma and square and went on into San Francisco’s bizarrely named Treasure Island to catch the sunset.

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thank you
