The weekend is a time to unwind and to explore places unknown, new experiences and sites you’ve never known before. Sonoma County was top on our list last weekend. The area is notorious for wine and vineyards as they go hand in hand. Sonoma neighbors with Napa Valley so you can imagine this is the place to be for great wine tasting. Sadly, we didn’t taste any wine on our trip. We enjoyed walking the downtown area of Healdsburg, slowing down and taking in all the sites.
Bar Bravas, was a lovely restaurant we saw in the middle of town – wish we weren’t full from our picnic lunch. Once a single family home, they converted the structure into a restaurant. The front patio had bistro style table and chairs with orange accents throughout the front garden. The place seemed like a great spot to have coffee and or a quick bite with a friend. As we continued past, we noticed the once driveway now led you down a fun and inviting journey. I mean could you have walked past this and not wandered back there in curiosity? If we find ourselves back in town we will definitely be sure to stop here for a bite and request to sit in the backyard, so peaceful and serene.
The antique shop was my favorite. I love items that have history to them and being able to repurpose and reuse an item brings it back to life. The possibilities in this shop were amazing, although at times I felt very overwhelmed as if I had missed something unique!
I wonder what amazing places we will discover this weekend?
